Jan 21, 1755, was but three years of age when the family migrated to North Carolina in 1758. He married Rebecca Rush, May 4, 1776. She was born Oct 21, 1760. By this union there were eleven children. Benjamin inherited his father's homestead farm on Back Creek which was part of the original grant of 1784 to William Millikan, his father. He made his will March 25, 1834, but I have no record of his death. His widow, when 83 years of age, was carried by her daughter, Mrs. Abigail Commons, to Indiana, where she died. They were devoted members of the Quaker Society, used their language and dressed in their garb. He was buried in the Marlborough Quaker churchyard.
