He early entered the store of A. Haskins as clerk, where he remained until his majority.
He was soon after appointed executor of the estate of an uncle which made it necessary
to go to Georgia, where he disposed of the "Woodbine Plantation". What he saw while in
the south made him a strong anti-slavery man. After his return to the north he became a
partner in a large store in Keene. He decided in 1840, to remove to the then "far west", and
drove with a horse and chaise 400 miles and took up land in Clarendon, N. Y. and
that was his home until his death. Mr. Milliken was a man of sterling integrity, energetic
in business, of a kindly and geniel disposition, so that he was respected and beloved by
all who knew him. On account of curtain doctrinal beliefs he never united with any church,
but was a devout student of the Bible, a strict observer of the sabbath, and one who
sought reverently to do the will of God. Politically, he was a strong Republican, always
taking active interest in the success of the party. For 2 years in 1861 and 62 he was supervisor
of Clarendon. He was under the care of his son George, who always lived on the homestead,
and from him received the most dutiful attention. The funeral was attended by a large circle
of relatives friends and neighbors, who by their presence and kindly words, testified
to the esteem they held the departed. His place of birth could have been Keene, NH.
