First the family in the Mullins region. The first known were John, Malcolm and Neill V MacMillan, three brothers, Neill V. lives in the Mullins region and has a family of sons and daughters. One of his daughters married last week to Mack Harrelson, of Buck Swamp. Neill V McMillan is a farmer, a law-abiding man, and a quiet, inoffensive citizen; don't know to whom he married or how many children he has. Malcolm married a Miss Williamson, daughter of John Williamson; by this marriage were born and raised three sons, John, Neill and Malcolm.

Another family of MacMillans are at Marion Court House. The first known of this family was old John McMillan, a sturdy Scotchman, born as I think, in the country, but his ancestry not very remote came from Scotland. Old John married a Miss Avant, of a Marion family, and came and settled in Marion in the latter thirties or early forties. (Further in the text) He had and raised to be grown two sons Sydney and William Cicero, and three daughters. The two named were Sarah and Elizabeth.
