Thank you Peggy for your interest and enthusiasm for this great work. My Dildine line extends from Germany to New York, New Jersey, Pa, Ohio and into Illinois. My particular interest at this time is getting some pictures of early Dildines and in verfying family relationship between Andrew Jackson Dildine, born in Fairfield County, Ohio in about 1821, and his son Jackson Pierce Dildine, born in Fairfield County, Ohio, 14 Nov 1855. Jackson Pierce Dildine was married to Sophia Culumber. JP died in Ohio and was buried outside of Shelbyville, IL. I have a newpaper obituary from Shelbyville, IL and a letter from his second wife verifying he is the son of Andrew Jackson Dildine, bu I would like more family detail. I have census records that show Andrew Jackson and his wife, Mary Ellen Fishpaw, had 4 children prior to 1850, but I cannot locate the family on a later census.
Thanks again, Peggy, and anyone else that has information available, I hope they will help in the coordination of efforts in this great Dildine Family History.
