New Info on Dillon Family


Sunday, December 12, 2010 


E-Mail received from Ron HIlton, who is married to a descendant of Sarah Hardcastle Dillon (1861).  Sarah Hardcastle Dillon was a daughter of Dr. James L. Hardcastle, and granddaughter of Dr. John Hardcastle.

Ron verified much of the information I had on this family, and he clarified and added to the information.  He furnished some photos and documents which are now available on the individual pages.

He gave me the information that Sarah Hardcastle Dillon moved to Arkansas County, AR after the death of her husband in 1926.  We have not been able to find her in the 1930 Census for Arkansas.  He furnished the info that Sarah died in 1932 and was buried in Arkansas County.  He furnished a copy of her death certificate, which shows her mother's name as "?" Banks.  This confirms the first marriage of Dr. James L. Hardcastle, and confirms that Mary Banks was Sarah's mother.  All the rest of the children were born to Dr. James L. and Marguerite Landers Hardcastle.

All info very much appreciated.
