The Dillon Family, pp. 804-807

No family in Hardin county has been better known or performed their duties as public-spirited, enterprising citizens than the Dillons. For a period of sixty years they have labored here, doing their full share at all times in the work of general development. They came here among the early pioneers, when the vast prairies were wild and sparsely settled, roamed over by Indians and untamed beasts, but they had the foresight to prompt them to make this favored region their permanent place of abode, knowing that advancing years would bring untold riches as the result of man's energy and enterprise. They have been known from the first not only as people of energy who halted at no obstacles, but also as law-abiding, obliging and honest in all the relations of life. One of the worthy members of this honored family, one of the most progressive and best known of the present generation, is Clinton Dillon, of Iowa Falls, whose birth occurred on November 13, 1854, along Honey Creek, near the present site of New Providence, this county. He is the son of Daniel and Lydia Ann (Townsend) Dillon, the father having come from Jefferson county, Ohio, probably prior to 1850 and located in Jefferson county, Iowa. Here he married Miss Townsend, daughter of Nathan and Sarah (Mercer) Townsend. She had come from Columbiana county, Ohio, to Jefferson county, Iowa, with her parents, as early as 1850, the family locating two and one-half miles east of Iowa Falls, securing one hundred and sixty acres of prairie and forty acres of timber.

About the first of September, 1851, four men made their first settlement in Providence township, one of whom was Samuel Dillon. In the spring of 1852 Joseph Dillon, father of Samuel, came here with James Fitzgerald, and these men made the first settlement in Providence township. Daniel Dillon was born in Jefferson county, Ohio, and was the son of Joseph and Delilah (Music) Dillon. He came with his parents to Jefferson county, Iowa, and later to Honey Creek, this county.

In 1852. Nathan Townsend and wife moved to Hardin township, this county, locating two and one-half miles southeast of the present site of Iowa Falls, before this city was thought of. There Mr. Townsend entered one hundred and sixty acres of prairie land and forty of timber, as above related, all of which he cleared up and improved, establishing a good home here in which he and his wife spent the balance of their lives. They were the parents of the following children: Lydia Ann, mother of Clinton Dillon, of this review; Thomas; Wilson; Allena is the wife of R. S. Horr; Cyrus; Nathan; Sarah is the wife of Ellsworth M. Fiske; Oliver.

There were thirteen children in Joseph Dillon's family, of whom Daniel, father of Clinton Dillon, was the third in order of birth. When the latter was only a small child, his father embarked in the general merchandise business at New Providence; this, it is believed, was the first store there. The first Indian which he recalls having seen, visited his father's store. But when he grew older he had occasion to frequently see the settlers banding together for the purpose of repelling attacks by the red men, after the Spirit Lake massacre and other outbreaks. The family later moved to a place one mile east of where Iowa Falls now stands, and he lived in a log house, while Daniel Dillon went to look for gold. He was one of the hardy band who crossed the plains of the great West, seeking the yellow metal in Colorado and California.

In the latter part of 1863 Daniel Dillon enlisted for service in the Union army, becoming a member of a company of Iowa volunteer infantry. He served until the close of the war.

Before leaving for the war, the father bought a small farm in Providence township, where the family could be near his parents; this proved to be a wise thing, since he was away until the close of the war. Upon his return he bought a farm three miles east of Iowa Falls and moved his family there and this remained the family home as long as he lived. He was a Republican and active in party affairs. He and his wife were both Quakers by birthright. His death occurred in 1895, his wife surviving until the spring of 1901. They were the parents of eleven children, namely: Oswell lives at Estherville; Clinton, of this review; Adelbert, of Delta county, Colorado; Anneta married Isaac Blackman and died about 1904; Herbert was an engineer, on the Iowa Central railroad and was killed while on the road about 1898; he left one son, Veryn, of whom the subject was guardian until he became of age; he is now living at Hemet, Riverside county, California; Warren is a conductor on the Rock Island system and lives at Estherville, Iowa; Rosell is an engineer on the Illinois Central road, and lives at Fort Dodge; Albert is on a farm in South Dakota; Thomas was an engineer on the Iowa Central road and died from accidental injuries about 1890; Lenna married A. H. Page and lives at Fort Dodge; George is conductor on the Illinois Central railroad and also lives at Fort Dodge.

Clinton Dillon grew to maturity on the home farm and when only sixteen years of age began working out at farm work. Before he was nineteen years old he began railroading, working first two or three years on the section. He resigned his position to go to California, where he secured a position braking out of Sacramento. Falling ill with inflammatory rheumatism, he was laid up in the hospital for some time and upon his release returned to Iowa and resumed work on the Illinois Central road as a brakeman and in a short time was promoted to conductor. He remained with the company about eight years, or until 1882, then went with the Burlington, Cedar Rapids & Northern railroad, with which he remained until 1896, and becoming, as he did with the former road, one of their most efficient and trustworthy employees and became one of the best known men in railroad circles in central Iowa. In 1896 he and Michael Hogan bought the Iowa Falls Bus & Transfer Line from William Burgess. Mr. Dillon remaining in that business for eleven years, then sold out to J. D. Cowan. He built up a large business and made this line popular with the traveling public. In January, 1909, he was prevailed upon to accept the exclusive management of the bus business and since then has carried the business forward with much success in a financial way and to the eminent satisfaction of the owners.

In 1875 Mr. Dillon was united in marriage with Elizabeth Turner, daughter of Joseph and Sarah Turner, and to this union two children were born, both of whom died in infancy. Mrs. Dillon's death occurred in the fall of 1877, and in 1880 he was married a second time, his last wife being Elizabeth Dermady, a native of Virginia; she was a cousin to Mr. Dillon's first wife and came to Iowa Falls with the Turner family about 1871. This union also resulted in the birth of two children, Martha Agnes, who is the wife of Roy Evans, lives at Iowa Falls and has one son, Dillon Evans, and Seward Dillon, who is now living in Estherville, Iowa, a conductor on the Rock Island railroad; he married Florence Egbert.

Fraternally, Mr. Dillon is a Mason, belonging to the blude lodge, chapter, commandery and the Ancient Arabic Order of nobles of the Mystic Shrine; also the Order of the Eastern Star, and he has long been prominent in lodge circles.
