I'd like to let those with a research interest in Modoc County know
that my long-time "brick wall" has finally been connected to a larger
family. He is a son of William Dillon (1806/VA-1843/TN)/Elizabeth Nunn (1801/VA-1861/KY).
And thanks to the research efforts of others, there are further generations
back in history.
Linking Reuben to his father and others is mostly due to Ancestry DNA.
