GEORGE G. MILL

GEORGE G. MILL, a retired agriculturist of Buckingham township, Bucks county, Pennsylvania, having given up active business pursuits in 1885, was born December 4, 1823, in Durham township, which is at the extreme north point of Bucks county, the last of the original township to be organized, but one of the earliest in the upper end to be settled.

Solomon MILL (grandfather) lived and died in Bucks county, Pennsylvania, where he followed farming as an occupation. He married a Miss DEEMER, and their children were: Tranther, who married a Mrs. DEAN: John: George, mentioned hereinafter: and Solomon. George MILL (father) was born in Durham township, Bucks county, and his entire time and attention, after completing a common school education were given to agricultural pursuits. During the war of 1812 he displayed his patriotism by enlisting, as a private, and throughout his term of service he served valiantly and well. He was a member of the German Reformed church. He married Miss Catherine GOOD, and eleven children, two of whom died in infancy, were born to them: The surviving members of the family are: Sarah, wife of Samuel JACOBY; Catherine, wife of Isaac JACOBY; Solomon G.; George G., mentioned hereinafter; John G.; Magdaline, wife of Elory LOUX; Susanna, wife of Isaac LAUBACH; Mary, wife of Ely CAULEY; and Amanda, wife of Samuel GAHMAN.

George G. MILL was indebted to the common schools of his township for a practical education. He remained home, assisting his father with the management of the farm, until he was twenty years of age, and the following two years worked for his uncle, Solomon MILL. He the (sic) returned home and worked for his father on the farm for four years, and at the expiration of this period of time began farming on his own account on the old homestead farm, where he remained six years. Having accumulated sufficient capital, he purchased a farm in Warrington township, which is the upper of the three rectangular townships that border the Montgomery county line, which he cultivated for nine years. He then disposed of this and purchased a farm in Buckingham township, where he gave his entire attention to farming until 1885, since which time he has lived a retired life, enjoying the fruits of his many years of arduous toil. In 1886 he was instrumental in the organization of what is known as Cold Spring Dairy Association, and acted in the capacity of superintendent for almost twenty years, and treasurer for about ten years. For the long period of thirty-nine years he has held membership in the Reformed church of Doylestown, during which time he served terms as a member of the board of elders and treasurer. Mr. MILL married Miss Madame BARON, daughter of Jacob and Susanna BARON, of Bucks county. Their children are: Mary, born January 8, 1852, wife of Reuben KOHL; Emma, born September 10, 1853, wife of Joseph RUOS; Isaiah B., born May 25, 1858; Catherine, born February 25, 1861, deceased; Elmer, born October 14, 1866, deceased; and Clara, born July 15, 1869, deceased. Mr. MILL is one of the venerable citizens of the township, honored and esteemed by all who come in contact with him. Mrs. MILL died August 8, 1893, at the age of sixty-four years.
