DILLON KINDRED

Updated January 2, 2011

About Our Family Research


These photos describe DILLON family members of two DILLON lines, the early descendants of which are found largely Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Pensylvania, New Jersey, Indiana and Michigan. They connect with members of the same families found at DILLON FAMILY GENEALOGY as well as DILLON FOLK and DILLON FAMILY PHOTOS. Inquiries can be directed to Henry S. Dillon at: hsdlsd@earthlink.net. We are always looking for additional family information and family photos.

  • 3a) Harry Benjamin/Ona Mae Culp Dillon family (56 KB)
    Back Row (Standing): Virginia (Ginny) Dillon John Dillon, Ernest (Ernie) Franklin Dillon, Robert Dillon, Harriet Dillon. Front Row (Seated): Elizabeth (Ibby) Dillon, Ona Mae Dillon, Ona Mae Culp Dillon, Mary Dillon, Harry Benjamin Dillon. Harry Benjamin (1883-1970) was the son of Benjamin Franklin (1856-1940) and Mary Jane Lewis Dillon, the grandson of Hugh Dillon (c1810-c1896) and Catherine Schultz Dillon. Many family members of this large and extended Dillon family have remained in the several counties of eastern and southeastern Ohio and neighboring West Virginia for several generations. Despite the large size and many members of this family, details describing the life of their ancestors, Hugh and Catherine have been extemely scarce. However, recent DNA testing has established a compelling case connecting Hugh Dillon to the family of John and Rachel Hamilton Dillon, the son of Peter Dillon Sr and Mary of Coshocton Co., Ohio. This photo taken c1933. (photo courtesy of Marcia Lynn Dillon Stafford at: mstaff@dhwireless.net, a descendant of this Dillon line.)5/2007

    Berdetta, here pictured c1970 with her great granddaughter, Laurie Jo Murphy, was the wife of Sylvester Mount (Ves) (Jack) Dillon, the son of John Hamilton Dillon and Josephine (Josie) (Jo) Mount Dillon of Blaine Co., OK. This extended Dillon line traces back to Lawrence Co., OH, Monroe Co., OH, Greene Co., PA, Somerset Co., NJ in the mid 1770s during the period of the American Revolutionary War and likely Ireland before that. This photo taken at Houston, TX home of the Doris Jane Dillon Barber and Robert Edward Barber, daughter and son-in-law of Berdetta, was provided courtesy of Laurie Jo Luman at: lj1489@earthlink.net. 7/2008

The grandparents of Doris resettled to Oklahoma in the late 1880s from Colorado and Lawrence Co., Ohio before that. This Dillon line traces back to Peter DILLON Sr who resettled in New Jersey in the 1770s likely from Ireland, where he was active in the New Jersey Militia. This extended DILLON line is profiled elsewhere at this site, as well as at the DILLON FOLK and DILLON FAMILY GENEALOGY photo sites.

    Deborah was the third eldest of the ten children of Obediah Meredith and Rebecca Draper. She married William Dillon (son of Peter and Mary) September 10, 1818, in Coshocton Co., Ohio. To this union were born twelve children. This family line is described elsewhere at this site, DILLON FOLK and DILLON FAMILY PHOTOS. ***In my entire CONQUEST file listing hundreds of the descendants of Peter and Mary Veghte Dillon, Deborah M. Meredith Dillon (1798-1886), wife of William Dillon represents the only individual with a photo from her generation. As their daughter-in-law, Deborah would intimately have known Peter and Mary Dillon. I consider this discovery one of the most significant finds in all the research efforts made so far regarding this Dillon family. I can not thank Jessica Underwood sufficiently for this special treasure. (08/2010)
  • 9a) Alfred M. Dillon (1930-2002) (60 KB)

  • 9b) Rebecca A. Dillon Babcock-gd Miriam Rae Miller (48 KB)
    Rebecca Ann Dillon Babcock and granddaughter Miriam Rae Miller (known as Nana within the family). As Nana looks to be around 3 or 4, this photo was likely taken c1910. Rebecca Ann Dillon would have been a granddaughter to William Dillon and Deborah Meredith Dillon, son of Peter Sr and Mary Veghte Dillon of Perry Twp., Coshocton Co., Ohio. As the eldest daughter of Oliver Perry Dillon, she married Ira L. Babcock abt 1867. And to this union were born: Oliver Perry, Andrew Carrol, Ora, Lucia Cleo and Alfred Ray Babcock.

  • 11b)Beulah Anne Blake Dillon w daughter & unk lady (37 KB)
    Though this photo was inscribed with the message Beulah Anne Blake Dillon and "daughters," records list only a single adult daughter for Oliver Perry and Beulah Anne Blake Dillon. Which lady is the daughter, Rebecca Ann Dillon, is unclear. Rebecca was born in 1848. If 30 to 40 years of age in this photo, this photo was likely taken in the 1870s or 1880s. Mother, Beulah Anne Blake Dillon lived until 1900. She was the wife of Oliver Perry Dillon, the second eldest child of William and Deborah M. Meredith Dillon of Perry Twp., Coshocton Co., Ohio. This family and extended family are profiled elsewhere at this site, DILLON FOLK and DILLON FAMILY PHOTOS. (photo courtesy of Jessica Underwood) 08/2010
  • 12) Minnie (Braden) Dillon with a Friend (55 KB)
    On the reverse side of this photo, retrieved from an estate sale on ebay, is written, "Minnie (Braden) Dillon with a Friend - Beaver Falls, Pa". There exists the possibility that this Minnie Dillon may be a member of an extended Dillon family profiled at: DILLON FOLK, DILLON FAMILY PHOTOS and DILLON KINDRED photo sites. The name, location and time period suggested by the fashion of both ladies, suggests the potential for a positive connection. (Henry S. Dillon at: hsdlsd@earthlink.net) 7/2008 ------------------------------------------------- Additional research and information suggests this photo is NOT Minnie Belle Dillon, the daughter of William Henry Dillon and Emma G. Lewis Dillon as recently thought, who married Andrew Albert (Andy) Williams (1889-1962). 7/2010

  • 14) George McFadden and Emily West McFadden (46 KB)
    George and Emily were the parents of Hamilton Culbertson McFadden, the spouse of Mariah Jane (Janie Marie) Dillon, the daughter of John and Malinda Wells Dillon. John was likely the youngest son of John and Rachel Hamilton Dillon who had resettled to the Monroe Co., Ohio region from Greene Co., Pennsylvania in the 1830s. John Dillon Sr was likely the son of Peter Dillon and Mary Veghte Dillon who had resettled to the Washington/Greene Co., Pennsylvania region from Somerset Co., New Jersey by 1790. Peter had been active with the NJ Militia during the American Revolutionary War, as an Irish immigrant. This extended family is profiled extensively at DILLON FOLK, DILLON FAMILY GENEALOGY and this site. (photo courtesy of Patty McFadden Gross at: pgross@ctcweb.net) 7/2008

  • 28) Rev. James William Dillon - newspaper article (46 KB)
    Rev. James William Dillon, Beckley, WV newspaper article (1947) - Rev. James William Dillon (center) is profiled elswhere at this site. This article read as follows: “The Rev. James W. Dillon, Fredricksburg, Va., returns as guest speaker tonight to the Mt. Tabor Baptist Church, of which he was pastor during his circuit riding days at the turn of the century. During 1905 and 1906 he preached at the Mt. Tabor Baptist Church once a month. At that time he was living near Indian Mills, in Summers County. To reach Mt. Tabor, he had to walk 16 miles over the hills to Hinton, catch the C. & O. train to Prince, ride the “fanny” to Cabell, and then walk a half mile more to Mt. Tabor. The round trip took four days with the minister arriving home late Monday night. Although there were five cases of typhoid in his family during the two years, he missed only two appointments at Mt. Tabor. The Church gave him about $200 a year then, although he had no set salary. Mr. Dillon, who is visiting his daughter, Mrs. James Cook, of Cabell, is 85 years old and in good health. He is no longer in regular active work, however. He can remember Beckley back in the days when it was known as “Raleigh town” and when the black mud reached to the hubs of the wagon wheels. It’s wonderful what a difference 40 years make in a community,” he said.” (Photo courtesy of Steve Dillon at: steve@dillonmusic.com) 8/2008

    Gladys was the third eldest child of Charles Absalon and Lima Bernice Hill Dillon. Charles Absalon was the son of Henderson French and grandson of Henderson Dillon. This Dillon line likely extends back into Colonial Virginia. The Rafferty given name of the husband of Gladys has not been determined, but research continues. It seems Gladys was born and likely spent her life in this location where she is buried, Indian Mills Cemetery, Summers Co., WV. (photo courtesy of Steve Dillon at: Steve@DillonMusic.com)9/2007
