Dad’s Dillon Family

I have been working on my Dad’s side of the family.  I have been surprised to learn how long they have been in the Central Missouri area.  Some of the family members were here as early as the 1830’s.  There has always been a legend about two of my grandmothers family members who were tried and hung as horse thieves.  I have not found any evidence to support this but I am finding a fair amount of circuit court documents from the 1840’s and 1850’s dealing with Thomas Dillon.  Thomas would have been my ggggrandfather.  This may prove to be interesting.  I have also contacted others who are researching these lines and they have been very helpful with documents and location of graves.  I hope as soon as the weather warms I will be able to visit some of these sites.
