A 1947 obituary for Willis E. Dillon, the son of Abraham and Jane
(Galpin) Dillon was printed in the Lineville, IA paper and I am looking
for his Dillon ancestors.
Willis was born in Decatur County, IA.
My grandmother was Bertha Dillon who married my grandfather George B.
Adams in 1889 on the Dillon farm in Gallatin, MO. (Daviess County).
Bertha was the daughter of Henry and Emmaline )Galpin Dillon.
My grandmothers father, Henry (1845?-1896) was the son of William and
Elizabeth (?) Dillon. Henry was born in Monroe County, OH. In the 1850
Census William was shown as being 27 yrs old, also born in OH and
Elizabeth was shown as being 35 years old and born in PA. Living in the
same household was an 80 year old lady named Elizabeth Highly born in
VA. She may have been the younger Elizabeths mother.
At the 1850 census William and Elizabeth had three sons, all three born
in OH: Abraham age 6, ( Willis' father), Henry age 4 and John age 3.
Both Henry and his brother Abraham married Galpin sisters. Henry
married Emmaline and Abraham married Jane Galpin.
I am looking to connect my Dillon family with their proper ancestors.
We know our William was born in OH. Since William and Elizabeth named
their oldest son Abraham, it is possible that Williams father may have
been named Abraham. In the OH 1830 census in Logan county OH, Perry
Township is an Abraham Dillon with a son of the proper age to match our
William. This is a possible clue to our Williams ancestors. I am also
looking for the maiden name of Williams wife, Elizabeth. The birth,
marriage and death records for Monroe county were lost in a fire, so we
are not able to use that source.
The naming of children of later generations would lead us to believe
that our Dillon line is connected to the following families: Curtis,
Estelle and of course Galpin. Other Dillon family members lived in such
places as Cushing Oklahoma, Caldwell Idaho, Hamilton MO, and Lineville,
IA and Decatur County IA..
Thank you for your help.
