Alfred M. Dillingham-Williamson Co. Ill.

  of 885

My Gt.Gt.Grandmother is Margaret Miller b. 4 Nov. 1838 in Jefferson Co. Tenn. Her parents are Jonathan Miller and Elizabeth Hill. Margaret married first husband Alfred M. Dillingham on 30 August 1854. It has been told that Alfred and William Dallas DeWoody made a pact upon entering the civil war, that if one should die and the other live that one should take care of the dead one's family. So it was that my Grandfather William D. DeWoody married Margaret Miller Dillingham on 9 Nov. 1865 in Corinth Township, Williamson Co. Illinois. It has also been said that they reared : 1.James William Dillingham b. 9.Aug. 1856 2. Thomas Jefferson Dillingham b.31 May 1858 and 3. Vachel Simpson Dillingham, b. 4 Dec. 1860. I was wondering if any of the above Dillingham relatives, would know any history of Jonathan Miller or Elizabeth Hill. I will share all I have. Most of material comes from a book called: DeWoody Records by Brightwell, a very nice man who is still living. My e-mail address is . I have many relatives buried at the Dillingham Shed. Sincerely, Gloria Baran
