  • History of McMillen

    Portait of Mr. McMillen.

    Born in Arkansas in 1818, Comfort Allen McMillen married Lydia Maxwell. Together, they traveled in 1845 to Texas, arriving in the area in 1846, settling on the banks of a muddy creek, now named Maxwell Creek. The families built and developed a robust farming community, which is currently called Murphy.

    Large tracts of his land were given to the town of Murphy so that industry could be developed. Additionally, land was given to the Corinth Presbyterian Church, where he was a founding, charter member. McMillen was characterized for his pious nature and devotion to the Bible. 

    By the time of his passing in 1914, McMillen had lived for 96 years.
