Clarence J. DILLION
Dianna-your edit helped me in that I discovered her father, William Jefferson, had a brother Harmon that moved to Idaho and is buried there. I am a product of those DILLION family members that left Scott co, Va and lived and died in Weiser, Idaho and the surrounding area and this project is a passion of mine.

With the addition of Harmon F*A*G 18882282, I now have 134 names on my list. These are just first and second generation. I created a binder for the Scott County Historical Society and gave it to LINDA HALL/Kenny Stallard and am making a duplicate for our upcoming ROLLER reunion at Fairview Community Center on September 26, 2015.

If interested, the largest number are buried in Hillcrest, Washington county, Idaho.

Thanks, Joe, grandson of Ibbie Roller Dillion

Dickenson cemetery
I have some info on the cemetery( dickenson) my husband ( Jeff shoop) says there is a cemetery off of maples gap, road, it's overgrown with trees, but it would be behind the church ( up the mountain)
Jeff's dad is Jonah Shoop, son of Kier( Henry Hezekiah Madison Monroe Shoop( Shupe) ) - son of James & Martha Shoop / Shupe
Hope this helps.. Took me a while to figure out "behind" usually meant up on a mountain 😊

RE: the name Haburn
OK. I am sold on the new DNA test. I took the old Y-DNA test that offered. I am assuming you are talking about the new test that is for males and females to take instead of the separate Y-DNA and mtDNA tests previously offered?

I have also taken Y-DNA test with Family Tree DNA. I spent alot of money on that test to have the most DNA markers tested that was offered. I think that they messed up that test since not all the markers matched the one I took with I have also not had ANY matches from there more that having 12 markers in common. Those matches are so far back in generations that I don't really consider them a match of any significance whatsoever.

I will dig into getting another test from this weekend if that is what you recommend.

RE: the name Haburn
OMG!!!! So how many Haburn's do you have in your tree? I have 2... my father (Haburn Rube Browning Jr.) and my grandfather (Haburn Rube Browning Sr.). Not a very common name, and frankly as we have discussed in the past one that I am glad was not passed down to me ;-)

With the release of the VA death and birth records, I was just going through all those Shupes that could possibly be my great grandfather. George Calvin/Cowen Gilmer Shupe was one of those whom I had previously identifed has PROBABLE. After this last round because of the following:

1) His residense during the 1910 census was Wise County, VA and Not Lee County, VA or Scott County, VA
2) His marriage occured after 1908 (when my grandpa was born) in Stone Gap, Wise, Virginia.

I increased him to a HIGHLY PROBABLY.

Additionally, George's birth year is the same as my great grandma... 1887.

I have always had special focus on James Monroe Shupe's sons because of their location in Stone Gap, Wise, Virginia.

I have also always had special focus on Albert Winfield Shupe's (the son of Granville Mitchell Shupe Sr.) siblings and children because his last son (born in 1905... 3 years before my grandpa) was named William Theodore "Theodore" Roosevelt Shupe.

My grandpa was listed as Roosevelt Browning in the 1910 census for Stonega, Wise, Virginia. His name must have been later changed to Haburn Rube.

I am digging into this one. You may have struck gold for me Dianna! I cannot thank you enough for this find!


1) Orbin P. Shupe (son of Granville Mitchell Shupe Sr.)
2) Charles Morgan Shupe Sr. (son of William Sampson Shupe)
3) George William Shupe (son of William Sampson Shupe)
4) George Calvin/Cowen Gilmer Shupe (son of James Monroe Shupe)
5) John Allen Shupe (son of James Monroe Shupe)
6) Worley Shupe (son of Henry Clay Shupe)
7) Charles Elbert Shupe (son of Henry Clay Shupe)

My PROBABLES are now:
1) Loran Moscoe Shupe (son of Albert Winfield Shupe)
2) Granville Mitchell Dee Shupe (son of Albert Winfield Shupe)
3) Caston Greene "Greene" Shupe (son of William Sampson Shupe)
4) James Nelson Shupe (son of James Monroe Shupe)
5) Christopher "Chris" Jessee Shupe (son of Thomas Burgases Shupe)
6) James Daniel Shupe (son of Thomas Burgases Shupe)
7) Benjamin J. "Hoge" "Cuge" Shupe (son of Henry Clay Shupe)
