I am looking for any evidence that there were McDill that also went by the name of Dill. The following is the only evidence that I have that there were McDill who also went by Dill (1) On page 66 of Parish Lists of Wigtownshire and Minnigaff 1684, there is listed John McDill and his wife, Margrett Coning. Their daughters are listed as Janet and Helen Dills. (2) There was a James McDill who was more commonly known as James Dill. The following is the first sentence from an article on page 4 of the Dumfries & Galloway Standard dated 22 Aug 1896. The article was titled The Fatality at the Caledonian Station: Yesterday an inquiry under the Fatal Accidents Inquiry Act was conducted before Colonel Shortt, honorary Sheriff Substitute and a jury in the Dumfries Sheriff Court, into the circumstances of the accident which occurred at the Caledonian goods yard on 11th Court, through which James McDill (more commonly known as James Dill), a shepherd in the employment of Mr David Steel, farmer, Auchenfranco, Lost his life.
