I have a poor copy of this information, some of the data is omitted at the top. This is what it says......
Development of Warren Co. for more than forty years. He has seen its wild lands transformed into
beautiful homes and farms, he watched the building of railroads, the introduction of the telegraph and
telephone, has seen the establishment of towns and cities, and in all the work of development and
progress he has borne his part. He therefore deserves mention among the honored pioneers who form
the advance guard of civilization.
A native of the Hoosier State, Mr. Dillard was born in Fayette Co., on the 15th of Apr. 1825, and is of
English linage. His grandfather, Thomas Dillard was born in England in the seventeenth century, and
when a young man came to America, locating in the Virginian Colony, long before the Revolutionary War.
Thus the family was established on American soil. He spent his remaining days in that State, where he
died at an extreme old age. George Dillard, the father of our subject, was born in Virginia in the year
1777, and continued his residence there until 1799, when he removed to South Carolina. Two years later
he emigrated to the Territory of Indiana, and took up his residence in the wilderness of Franklin county,
in 1801. The greater protion of that State was then an undeveloped region, mile after mile of having
never been traversed by white man. Amid the rough and rugged surroundings of pioneer life he lived,
following the trades of millwright and carpenter which he learned in his early years. He belonged to that
class of sterling pioneers who were possessed not of an adventurous spirit but of a desire to establish
homes. He was a public-spirited citizen, devoted to the best interests of the community. In politics he
was a stanch Whig. A well spent life gained him high regard, and he passed away in 1843, at the age of
sixty-six years. His wife, who bore the maiden name of Rachel Kitle, was a native of South Carolina,
where her parents were also born, reared and spent their entire lives. The family is of German lineage.
Mr. & Mrs. Dillard became the parents of eight children, and the surviving members of the family are
Thomas, who is living in Logansport, Indiana; Jacob, makes his home in Warren county; Nancy, wife of
Thomas Baldwin, of Albia, Iowa; Jane, wife of John Bennett, of Shelby county, Indiana; George, of this
The last named spent his early life in his native State, and his father�s death, which occurred during his
boyhood, the care of his mother devolved upon him. Faithfully did he perform the task, managing her
business interests until twenty-seven years of age. On the 22nd of October, 1849, he married, the lady of
his choice being Miss Mary Dowell, a native of North Carolina and a daughter of John Dowell, of that
State. She died in 1868, leaving nine children, of whom seven are now living, as follows: Nancy Jane,
wife of James Chandler, of Pottawattamie county, Iowa; Sarah A., wife of William Roshaw, who is living
in the same county; John T., Simeon J., and Jacob F., all residents of Warren county; (Frank M.) ?, wife
of William flockner, of Ritzville, Washington; and Hannah, wife of S.L. Kauffman, of South Dakota.
In 1854 Mr. Dillard cast in his lot with the early settlers of Warren county, locating in Greenfield township,
which has been his home from that time up to the present. He became the owner of 120 acres of wild
land, and with characteristic energy began its development and improvement. As acre after acre was
placed under the plow and crops were planted, the place begag to assume the appearance of a good
farm, and has become one of the most valuable and desirable properties in this section of the State. As
his financial resources increased, Mr. Dillard added to his farm, until it now comprises 760 acres. Upon it
stand large and substantial buildings, including commodious barns which furnish ample shelter for the
large number of cattle, horses and hogs which he raises. The latest impoved mechinery in there seen,
the fields are tilled and everything about the place indicates the careful supervision of the owner, who
through his own efforts has become one of the most prosparous and prominent farmers and stock
dealers of Warren County.
Mr. Dillard was again married in 1870 when he was united to Prissilla ? ���� the rest is unreadable���
