The Millikin name has also been spelled Milliken. In the History of the Church by Joseph Smith, he names Arthur Millikin in Volume 5, page 109 (spelled with an i). In Volume 7, he names Mrs. Arthur Milliken (spelled with an e), and this person is actually his sister Lucy. In Volume 2, page 367, he names Nathaniel Milliken (spelled with an e) and from the genealogy found on the IGI this Nathaniel is Arthur Milliken's father's brother (Arthur's uncle.) It appears that Sarah Milliken Nichols' grave stone has her name spelled Milliken (with an e), yet the obituary has it spelled Millikin (with an i).
