Henry was about two years old when his father, mother, and 10 of their 12 children departed Ohio and headed west in two covered wagons. Going along was 100 head of cattle...First, they made a three year stop near Maysville, Missouri, then a one year stop 5 miles west of Hutchinson, Kansas, before making their final stop in 1877 to homestead farmland 3 miles west of what would become the town of Stafford, Kansas. He was educated at North Star school.
Following his father's footsteps, Henry took up farming and decided to participate in the land rush on April 22, 1889 at the Cherokee Strip in Oklahoma. It wasn't until 1895 that he made a claim to farm land near Guthrie, Oklahoma.
After his marriage to Harriett "Hattie" Mabel Ferris on March 17, 1897, he and his wife settled on a new claim near Wynoka, Oklahoma where the first two of their ten children were born.
In 1902 Henry and his family moved back to the Stafford area and eventually settled on a farm 6 miles north and 5 miles west of St. John, Kansas, in an area known as Douglas Township.
Henry was a husky, tall & burley man who made a good farmer. He was the kind of man who would pull his own bad teeth with barbed wire. If he cut his hand badly, he'd just slap on some axle grease and continue working.
Quoting the 'Stafford Courier': "Mr. McMillan was well know all over Stafford County. He was a good neighbor, a loyal friend, and firm in his convictions. He was fond of his children and grandchildren to an exceptional degree. Hospitality was extended to them and their large circle of friends especially during the years when his family was about him."
He was a member of the Church of Christ in St. John.
