I am looking to connect my William Dillon with his proper parents and
ancestors. William was born in 1822 in Ohio, (county not known, but
perhaps in Monroe County Ohio.) In 1853 William Dillon moved his family
to Wayne County IA and purchased a farm. At about the same time he and
his wife Elizabeth Dillon donated land for a Cemetery. I would assume it
was on the edge of his farm.
William and his wife Elizabeth had three sons: Abraham, Henry and John.
We think that John died before 1860 in Wayne county. Abraham and
Henry married Galpin sisters - Jane and Emmaline Galpin.
William died about 1875 in Wayne county. Does anyone have any
information on him? Were there obituaries in 1875 there? Thanks for help.
