Hey Tony, Anything I have on Jeremiah I'll gladly share with you. I can email it to you or you can email (rtwyatt6@yahoo.com) me anything you can't find and I will see if I have any info on it. Or, maybe if we are both looking for something we should post it here so others can run across it like I did with Dawn's post.

That was a great find that she came across. Thanks to Dawn for sharing the info.

Tina, Sorry, instead of making you go to the other site i'll just resend my note below. I'm not sure of how much information you have on the Dills side of your family?

Tina,

I ran into your conversation with Dawn. Jeremiah was my Great Great Grandfather. I'm related through his son Thomas Satterfield Dills.

If you would like to chat offline let me know? Until two years ago I knew nothing of my grandparents and their family. Long story, my father was raised by his sisters and a lot of family history was lost. When my father joined the Army his birth certificate had to be reproduced from the family bible since the courthouse in either Franklin (or Hayesville) burnt down. His sister Betty dropped the "s" of the Dills name since she thought it sounded more proper. The same way the name was before the family came to NC from England (I believe Devonshire) by way of Sommers Island (now called Bermuda).

I’ve been researching Jeremiah's military service, he was a 2nd Lieutenant in the 114th Infantry Regiment, North Carolina Militia (28th Brigade, Macon County) before the Civil War, then after the War broke out he resigned his commission and joined the newly formed D Co, 62nd North Carolina as part of the Confederacy, along with his brother Bartlett. I haven’t seen any military records on Henry, but I’ll keep my eyes out.

References:
NC Confederate Militia, Officers Roster as contained in the Adjutant General Officers Roster. Page 300 – 301. Stephen E. Bradley.
National Archives Compiled Service Records of Confederate Soldiers who served for North Carolina, Roll 221.

Have a great weekend,
Tony
