Hi Kay,
Great NEWS! I have two hits for you to think about. Andrew in the second
family was an uncle of James Harrison Sr. #1083). Still don't know where
the Dilliard came from though. I doubt that James named his dau after his
uncle's wife - but then you never know. And of course, there be some
errors in our records or they may be incomplete.
