Mary E. Puckett Dillard
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1775
Death: Mar. 31, 1842
Laurens County
South Carolina, USA

Mary Puckett was the second wife of Revolutionary War Hero, Captain James Dillard. Together they had 7 children, one of which was Dr. James Henry Dillard, whose daughter, Mary Jane was married to William Plummer Jacobs who was the founder of the Thornwell Orphanage in Clinton, SC.

Headstone on left lying on the ground is Capt. Dillard's. His wife Mary Puckett lies to his right. He was born in 1755 and died in 1836. Mary died in 1842.

No one is quite sure where James' first wife Mary Ramage is buried.

This is the family cemetery for the Dillard's and Ducketts in South Carolina. It is most likely in Newberry County.
