Mcmillan, Hugh

McMillan, Hugh D.D., a Presbyterian minister, was born in Chester District, S. C., February, 1794; pursued his collegiate studies at the University of Pennsylvania, and graduated with the highest honor; was soon after elected professor of languages in Columbia College; but, determining to consecrate himself to the ministry, he entered the theological seminary of the Reformed Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia, Pa., and in 1820 was licensed to preach. In 1821 he was ordained and installed pastor of the Rock Creek Brick Church, Chester District, S. C. His reputation as a profound linguist being now well established, at the public solicitation he founded an academy at the Brick Church for the primary education of young men. In 1828 he accepted a call to become pastor of the united congregations of Xenia and Massie's Creek, Ohio, where also, at the earnest request of his people, he established an academy in 1830. In 1850, his congregation, becoming too numerous, divided into two societies, and he removed to Cedarville, where he died, Oct. 9, 1860. Dr. McMillan was a man of deep- toned piety; zealous, faithful, and indefatigable as a minister; profound and learned as a scholar. See Wilson, Presb. Hist. Almanac, 1861, p. 218. (J. L. S.)
