To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 3840), to request the Department of Transportation to name the portion of United States Highway 76 in Marion County, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same, and recommend that the same do pass:
RICHARD M. QUINN, JR., for Committee.
TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION TO NAME THE PORTION OF UNITED STATES HIGHWAY 76 IN MARION COUNTY, FROM THE EASTERN CITY LIMITS OF THE CITY OF MULLINS TO THE LITTLE PEE DEE RIVER, THE "McMILLAN HIGHWAY".
Whereas, the McMillan Family ancestors arrived from Scotland in the summer of 1771 and settled near Philadelphus Church in Robeson County, North Carolina; and
Whereas, the McMillan Family of Mullins, South Carolina, has been an important part of the story of Marion County since 1839; and
Whereas, Malcolm McMillan's three sons, John, Neil, and Malcolm, lived and farmed all their lives in the Scottish community of Marion County along Highway 76 between the eastern city limits of Mullins, South Carolina and the Little Pee Dee River; and
Whereas, their descendants have a tradition of service to Marion County, the State of South Carolina, and the United States, namely:
John L. McMillan-United States Congressman for thirty-four years;
Claude R. McMillan-Chief Highway Commissioner of South
Dr. Lon M. McMillan-started first hospital in Marion County;
Dr. Carl B. McMillan-lifetime doctor in Marion County;
George R. McMillan-master farmer and Farm Credit leader in Marion County; and
William V. McMillan-farmer and Chairman of Farm Credit Bank
of Columbia and Federal Land Bank and Production Credit of
Whereas, it is fitting and proper that the portion of United States Highway 76 in Marion County, from the eastern city limits of the City of Mullins to the Little Pee Dee River, be named the "McMillan Highway" as a lasting tribute to this family which has played so vital a role in the history of that area. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina request that the Department of Transportation designate and name that portion of United States Highway 76 in Marion County as described in this resolution the "McMillan Highway" and install appropriate markers or signs at places along the highway as the department considers advisable containing the words "McMillan Highway".
Be it further resolved that copies of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation and to the McMillan Family.
