Evan Dillon 7/4/98
The 1765 Tyrrell County will of SAMUEL SPRUILL lists one
of his heirs as "James the son of Mary DILLING." That
James DILLON was my ancestor. His mother's name was obviously Mary
but I don't know who his father was. I have not been able to find a
Dillon father for James. The fact that he is an heir of Samuel Spruill
makes me wonder if he was the illegitimate child of Sam Spruill and Mary
Dillon. James' mother Mary Dillon could have been either the widow or daughter
of John Dillon who died in 1757 (both women were named Mary). Sam
Spruill and the widow Mary Dillon were roughly the same age so Sam could
not have been Mary's father and therefore Sam Spruill could not be the
grandfather of James Dillon. Any thoughts on this or further information
would be appreciated. Thanks in advance, Evan Dillon
I am interested in Pridmores and Storeys in Pickens
County, AL. They married Spruills in the 19th century there. I have
extended information on my lines and would be willing to share as well
as learn more.

Polly (?) Spruill. He died sometime between 1880 and 1890. He was married
to Emmaline Davenport (second wife). My grandmother Lina Spruill
Chesson was his daughter. She was a child when he died. I would like
