John was a son of Jeremiah Dillingham & Abigail Chamberlain.
He was married on 29 Oct 1782 at Brookfield, Worcester County, Massachusetts to Sarah Gilbert.
They had 12 children: Sally; Polly; Rebekah; Abigail; Freedom; John; Wealthy; Betsey; Gilbert; Salina; Harvey; and Eunice.
John Dillingham was a Private in the Massachusetts Militia during the American Revolution.
He moved to Brookfield, Massachusetts from Hanover, Massachusetts about the time of the American Revolution and was a blacksmith & farmer.
The Dillingham Genealogy claims that he bought land from his father on 31 Oct 1782, two days before his marriage, forty acres of land in Sylvester Canada (later incorporated as Turner, Maine) and that this land presently is located in Auburn ME. The following winter he and his wife were in Dighton MA. In the Spring of 1783, with his sister Mary and her husband Abel Allen they carried their belongings to Maine on horses. After a very short stop over at the last settlement called New Gloucester, Maine, they found their way by trail blazed marked by trees. They stopped to camp at what was later called Baker's Mill and soon continued northward and arriving upon their land built two log houses.
