Dear Dillaway/Delaway, Dilaway, etc. Descendants,
I am glad we finally have our own forum. Now, perhaps, we can find some elusive records.

My first documented DILLAWAY begins with John DELAWAY/DILLAWAY b. Ma about 1733. Died,Thomaston,Lincoln, ME,12 Jun 1803. He was a "cooper' from Boston, was stationed at Thomaston during the Rev. War and married the widow of John Shibles, Mary CARNEY, abt 1778. She was the daughter of Nellie O'MURPHY and Thomas CARNEY from Cork, IRE.
John was Town Clerk, Selectman and Rep. to the Legislature.
1.John DILLAWAY m. Mary CARNEY, Thomaston abt 1778

2.i.Samuel DILLAWAY b.23 Apr 1782 d.13 Jul 1854
m. Nancy(widow HALL)b.25 Jul 1785, York, ME, m. 6 Jan
1814 Belfast, Waldo, ME.
ii. Polly
iii. Elizabeth

3. Samuel DILLAWAY Jr.b.3 Mar 1816, Belfast d.4 Oct 1893
m. Melissa Jane COLCORD b.14 Mar 1837, Searsport, m.26
Oct, 1869, Belfast. Melissa J. COLCORD, d/o Mark
COLCORD and Rebecca Towle MARDEN.

4.i.Frank Alexander DILLAWAY b.8 Apr 1878 d.7 Nov 1907
m. Frankie Clark Daniels B.12 Aug 1883 Baxter Springs,
Cherokee, KS
ii. George L DILLAWAY b. 12 Oct 1870

5. Some still living.

I would be interested to see if anyone has documentation tying 1.John to earlier DILLAWAYS in Boston. I do have a large assorted Dillaway list done by a genealogist prior to 1910 of all the family he could find but no proofs.
