My great grandparents, GEORGE M. DILLON and JANE (JENNIE) S. OGIER DILLON were involved in real estate in Bellevue in the 1880-90's.I am trying to find the birth certificate for their daughter, my grandmother, EDITH PEARL DILLON.My mother told me that Edith was born Aug 25, 1880 in Chicago Junction. (Isn’t that now called Willard?)
I have looked in the Huron Co. court house for her birth certificate, and could not find it.What I did find was a certificate for a JANE DILLON, born Aug. 18, 1880 to George DILLON and Jannie OGIER.These are the correct parents, but not the correct name or date for the baby!
On Edith P. DILLON’s marriage application, she put her birthdate as Aug. 25, 1880 in Bellvue, Ohio.The death certif. says she was born in Chicago Junction.I'M CONFUSED!I’d just like to find a correct record of her birth!I know Bellevue is on the county line.Since that’s where her parents were living, could it have been recorded in another county?
An article I have on George M. Dillon says he is a member of the M.E. Church.Is that church still in existence, or if not, who would have the church records for it?Maybe I could get more information on the family from them.
