Subject: [LDR] GD] Copy of Original Indentured Service Document REPLY
Date: Wed, 7 Oct 2009 23:48:30 -0400
I am interested in some Dill ancestors too. Have you traced your line back
to this John Dill? My Dills came into MD from PA in the 1700's. But they
were in Frederick Co, MD so this LDR list isn't likely to have my family
members ...... it's a diffferent geographic area. And I believe mine were
Germans that anglicized their name from Diehl to Dill.
But I'd be glad to fill you in on what I have so far.
