Hello, interesting land records you have there. Not sure just what to MAKE of them yet. Some of the dates don't make sense with what I know.
I'm a cousin of some sort by the way. I descend from James Dishion Sr. I don't yet know who his father was. Among his many children, there was a James Jr.
James Dishion was born in North Carolina 1818. I have not located his family in Kentucky or determined when they moved there. But he apparently married Holland Adams there around 1840. The young family relocated to Missouri also shortly after 1840. I find them in the 1850 census for Macon county with a number of children. All the children are listed as born in Missouri. The family appears again in the 1860 census for Cooper county Missouri. James Sr. died 23 Nov. 1863. He is buried at New Salem cemetery, Cooper county. This cemetery appears to still be tended and the monuments readable. Holland apparently remarried as the Dishion children are found living with Holland Adair in the 1870 census for Cooper county but there is no male head of household. Holland appears again as Holland Dishion in the 1880 census for Cooper county. Holland died 19 Jan. 1888 and is also buried in New Salem.
James MAY have descended from someone with a right to claim bounty land. I know there was a Lewis Dishion who was awarded bounty land after serving in the Revolutionary war. But I cannot connect James to Lewis or any of the rest of the Dishion clan by anything other than he comes from the same place.
I know more including all of James Sr.'s children and a back story on the Dishion clan as well as exact dates for births and deaths. If anyone is interested, let me know.
Now I gotta go figure out what those land records mean!
