Looking for information on the parents of John A. Dill, born 27 Nov 1833, Hardin Co. TN and died 30 Nov 1904, buried at Woodville Cemetery, Haywood Co. TN. He married Margaret V. Wells 3 Aug 1866 in Lauderdale Co. TN. Children: James W., John A., Alfred B, Mary Ida, Nannie and Mattie (from 1889 and 1900 censuses, Haywood Co. TN). These censuses also show that John A.’s father was born in NC and mother in KY.
John A. Dill is in the household of James Dill in 1850 census, Hardin Co. TN, siblings Nancy 21, Mary 19, Susan 13, Patsy 11, James B. 9.
In the 1830 and 1840 censuses of Hardin Co., James Dill’s wife is shown as born between 1800 and 1810. I suspect she is the daughter of Thomas Rowsey, who came from Virginia to Barren Co. KY about 1800 and thence to Hardin Co.TN by 1820. There is an Elizabeth Dill 22 in the household of Thomas Rowsey 85 in the 1850 Hardin Co. census, and there is a James Dill 19 in the household of James H. Rowsey 42 (son of Thomas) in the 1860 Hardin Co. census.
