From the listing:

ďThe history of this resting place for many of the residents from the area continues to grow.

A stone for PVT Samuel J. Dillon, a Confederate Civil War veteran, has been placed in the past year. PVT Dillon was the son of Thomas J. Dillon and Obedience Tyree Dillon, PVT Dillon was born July 9, 1830, in Franklin County, Virginia. The family moved to Missouri in the mid 1830ís, settling in Cole Township of Benton County, Missouri. PVT Samuel J. Dillon was united in marriage to Volumina Jeans on April 25th, 1852. Volumina was the sister of Clay Jeans, the Benton County sheriff, who was killed in a shoot-out on Main Street in Warsaw in April 1885.

John Tyree, Samuel Dillonís uncle was executed by rebel force near Ball Town, just before the battle of Cole Camp. The rebels thought he was a spy for the Union Army. Samuel Jackson Dillon served as a PVT with Co. F., 8th Regiment Missouri State Militia Calvary from April 1st, 1862 through March 31, 1865. PVT Dillonís horse, valued at $100, also served during the same period.

Once the war was over, Mr. Dillon returned to his family near Edmonson, Missouri. He worked his farm until his death November 19th, 1913. The old soldier was laid to rest beside his wife, Volumina Jeans.Ē


I have not been to the cemetery but plan to visit soon. It is located just off of Hwy H in Benton County, Missouri. Sterling Swearngin has done a tremendous amount of work restoring this family cemetery. I have been told many of the stones were removed and used as foundation for a house in the area. This might account for the lack of tombstones in local cemeteries for Thomas Dillonís family. They may have once been in this cemetery.
