Clarence J. DILLION
Dillon-McGuire-Willard Cemetery
Betty---Hello-hope the snow is not too bad where you are. This is a bit of a shot in the dark but I am figuring on making a trip up to Franklin County, VA. to visit my DILLION/DILLON kin. In the early 1800's some moved to Scott Co., VA and that is where I have been doing my research BUT I know they came from Franklin and need to get there and visit my ancestors. I have GPS numbers for 12 family cemeteries BUT would like to include the Dillon-McGuire-Willard. Do you maybe have GPS numbers or directions to the cemetery for someone never in Franklin County?
I do appreciate any help you might be able to provide.

Many thanks,
Maryville, TN

OOPS - I didn't see the middle name of his parents before I send you a message. Please excuse my message as they match what is in the obit.

Evan Gillespie, Sr.
Sorry, Nancy Gillespie Underwood is my gg grandmother...I had much information from my grandmother on her and the Atkins line.

You can also look under It list the Gillespie family under Franklin Co.

Hope this helps...

Evans father was not Col. Daniel Gillespie, who was the founder of Greensboro, and family originated from Scotland.He had 8 children, none a Evan.

He was the son of Daniel from Ireland, born 1739, who lived in Amherst, Va. and moved to Franklin Co. and census records show him living there in 1786-1810. near Evan, Sr.

My great grandmother is Nancy Gillespie Underwood, daughter of Evan and Dicey Gillespie, also of Franklin Co. Va.

Gillespie is the correct spelling even though you will see three different spellings in one document in their land transfers. Very common.

Col Daniel Gillespie is #11467271 and his wife is #11467346. The internet has much information on this family...

Have a blessed day :-)
