In a second response I received from Theda Mae DILLON MOORE, she wrote that she had proof that Jesse DILLON's father was James DILLON who came to Henry, Bedford and Franklin Counties (by formation of those counties) from Cumberland County, Virginia, United States. She went on to say she did not have James' father; but, had James' grandfather, William DILLON, who died in 1744 in Goochland County, Virginia. She thought (no proof) they were in New Kent County, which was a county the records were burned.
