ANDREW T. MILLIKEN, postmaster at Adrian, as well as senior member of the firm of Milliken Brothers, general merchants of that place, was born Aug. 16, 1886, in Armstrong County, Pa., son of John Milliken.

John Milliken was a man of importance in his community. When he died, Jan. 16, 1911, he was the owner of 300 acres of choice farm land, and his success was honorably earned.

Andrew T. Milliken attended public school until nineteen years old, when he entered the mercantile business at Adrian. On March 30, 1911, he and his brother formed the firm of Milliken Brothers, having bought the store owned by H. M. Claypool. These brothers conduct a large business, their trade extending over a wide territory. They carry all kinds of general merchandise, and buy and sell every variety of country produce. In 1911 Mr. Milliken was appointed postmaster of Adrian.

On June 9, 1909, Mr. Milliken was united in marriage with Miss Mabel Fennell. Mr. Milliken belongs to the Independent Americans. He is a man of liberal views and public spirit, and both as a business man and public official has proved himself worthy of all the trust reposed in him.
