MacMillan History

The Clan MacMillan has its roots in an ancient royal house and from the orders of the Celtic church. The progenitor of the clan was Gillie Chriosd, one of the sons of the Cormac, the Bishop of Dunkeld. As a Columban priest, his head would have been shaved over the front of his head, rather than in the more usual fashion.

This distinctive tonsure is described in Gaelic as 'Mhaoillan'. The name MacMillan is therefore "son of one who bore this tonsure".

An early branch of the MacMillan clan was to be found at Loch Arkaig in Lochaber. However, tradition states that the family was moved from this area by Malcolm IV and placed on the crown lands of Loch Tay in Perthshire. It was at these lands in Perthshire that Robert the Bruce, fleeing after the stabbing of the Red Comyn, was sheltered by the MacMillan chief. The family proved its loyalty to the Bruce by fighting at his side at the Battle of Bannockburn.

There are two enduring MacMillan memorials in Scotland today. One of these is a round tower, built as part of Castle Sween by the 12th chief of the MacMillan clan. Castle Sween itself is the oldest stone built castle in Scotland. The other MacMillan memorial is a cross which stands in the churchyard at Kilmory. This cross is recognized as one of the finest surviving examples of Celtic art in Scotland, and shows a chief of the MacMillans hunting deer.

About Arthur, Wellington Co., Ontario: The founding of Arthur, named for Arthur Wellesley, Duke of Wellington, was the southern terminus of the Garafraxa "colonization road" to Owen Sound. Settlers arrived in 1840 but the town site was not officially surveyed until 1846. The establishment of saw and grist mills hastened growth in the community which was also the natural market centre for the area's agricultural production. In 1851 a post office was opened and the first church and school were organized. A weekly newspaper the Enterprise, was established and a Divisional Court met at Arthur. Economic development was further encouraged when, in 1872, a station of the Toronto, Grey and Bruce Railway was opened in the community. That year, Arthur was incorporated as a village.

Barbara Jo (MacMillan) Diles Obituary

DILES (nee MacMillan), Barbara Jo Nov. 19, 1938 - Feb. 16, 2015 Avid supporter of musical arts in Michigan and Florida, Barbara Jo Diles passed away on February 16, 2015, at Tidewell Hospice Care Center, Lakewood Ranch, Florida, after bravely dealing with lung cancer for the past year.


Her sister Carol, grandson David, and several friends were with Barbara as she quietly and peacefully left her earthly home to spend eternity with her son, David J. Ninowski. Born in Saginaw, Michigan, to Carl Donald and Betty Caroline (Barley) MacMillan, Barbara grew up in Ferndale, Michigan, and graduated from Lincoln High School in 1956. Barbara received coursework in business management from Oakland University and art administration from Harvard University. An accomplished violinist and trained vocalist, Barbara's life was infused with musical arts - choral groups, symphony orchestras and opera organizations. In Detroit she was an original member of the Kenneth Jewell Choir, sang with the Rackham Choir, as a soloist at Kirk In The Hills Presbyterian Church Choir, many other local church choirs and was on the board of The Opera Organization. Her orchestral management affiliations were with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and the Birmingham/Bloomfield Symphony Orchestra. Barbara was a board member and officer in many volunteer groups supporting the DSO and the BBSO. When Barbara retired to Sarasota in 2013, she continued to sing fulltime with the Saint Boniface Episcopal Church choir that she joined several years ago as a 'snowbird,' and sang with the prestigious Schola Cantorum choir this past year. She sang with the Musica Sacra Cantorum and with Gloria Musicae Chorus group before becoming a board member in development. Barbara is survived by her sisters, Carol (Daniel) Barr and Donna (Greg) Lenar; grandsons David C. and Dane N. Ninowski, granddaughter Jennifer Ninowski and great-granddaughter Rylee Payne-Ninowski, and daughter-in-law Donna Ninowski; Nephews and niece; cousins Ann Superko, Sharon Levine and dear friend Greg Pond.

She was predeceased by her parents, son David J. Ninowski, and nephew Eric S. Barr. Her beloved Siamese, KoKo, passed away the same day as Barbara, so as they lived 19 years together, so will they be together for eternity. A Memorial Service will be held February 28th, at 11:00 a.m., at Saint Boniface Episcopal Church, 5615 Midnight Pass Road, Siesta Key (Sarasota) Fl. In addition, a Memorial Service will take place in Michigan on May 16th, at 11:00 a.m. at the Kirk In The Hills Presbyterian Church, 1340 W. Long Lake Road, Bloomfield Hills. Barbara's family would like to thank her many friends for their continuing support, love and friendship. Sadly and sorely missed but grateful to have known her sunshine smile, sparkling personality, friendship and loyalty, and of course, her beautiful voice. Now she sings in the Heavenly Choir.
