THE DILLS - Page 660

 

Matthew Dill was one of the first settlers of the vicinity of Dillsburg,

 

locating there about 1740. He came from county of Monaghan, Ireland. The name “Dill” is Danish. The ancestors moved to England and some of them from thence to Scotland, during the time of the Commonwealth under Oliver Cromwell. Matthew Dill, the immigrant, in 1749 became one of the court justices of York County,

but before this had commanded a company against the Indians. He died October 13, 1750, aged fifty-two years. His remains were interred in the Presbyterian graveyard, a short distance west of Dillsburg, and the spot is marked by a

marble slab. He had several sons, but none of his descendants by the same name now live in the village. Dr. A. B. Dill, of York Springs, is a descendant.

Col. Matthew Dill, son of the settler, was very prominent in York County during the Revolution. Col. Richard McAllister, founder of Hanover, was chosen lieutenant of York County, an office created by the government, to organize all the militia of the county during the Revolution. He was married to a sister of Col. Dill whom he had appointed sub-lieutenant of York County. Col. Dill served in that office from January, 1781, to April, 1783, during which time he paid to various captains of companies $2,136 in government money. The names of those persons, most of whom lived in the upper end of York County, according to his account paid by the government July 1, 1788, were William Dodds, Alexander Nesbitt, John O’Bleanes, Andrew Wilson, Thomas Gould, John McMaster, William Coulson, Francis Bonner, William Ashton, Daniel Williams, Peter Spese.

 

Col. Dill commanded the Fifth Battalion of York County for three years, and was one of the framers of the constitution of 1790. For his services in the army he obtained a free patent for a tract of land three leagues square, on part of which Dillsburg is built, and on another part is a valuable ore bank. He was also granted a tract of land in Washington County, Penn., now known as “Dillwood.” He married a second time. Late in life he moved to Fairfield,

 

Adams County, where he died and was buried. He left seven sons, Col. Matthew Dill, Jr., Maj. James Dill, Col. John Dill, Capt. Thomas Dill, who was a student

at Princeton College, entered the army and was wounded at the battle of Brandywine. He was afterward presented by his father the tract called “Dillwood,” where he moved. His daughter Jane Dill married Henry Wilson, from whom descended Rev. Thomas B. Wilson, and whose children are Rev. Maurice Wilson, of Baltimore, and Rev. Calvin D. Wilson, of Harford County, Md. A second son of Jane Dill Wilson, was Rev. Samuel J. Wilson, D. D. LL. D., late of Alleghany, Penn., whose son Robert D. Wilson is a prominent lawyer of Pittsburgh.

 

A daughter of Jane Dill Wilson viz. Elizabeth, was married to John Paxton, whose sons are Rev. John R. Paxton, a clergyman in New York City, and Capt. Wilson A. Paxton, of Washington, D. C.

 

Dr. Armstrong Dill, a graduate of Princeton College, was a son of Col. Matthew Dill. He died at the age of twenty-seven years, December 31, 1788. His widow married Dr. Witherspoon, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. The following paragraph is copied from the United States Gazette, published in Philadelphia, and appeared June, 1791:

 

WITHERSPOON DILL - Married, at Philadelphia, Penn., on Monday evening, the 30th ult., by Rev. Dr. Nesbit, President of Dickinson College, the Rev. Dr. John Witherspoon, President of Princeton College, to Mrs. Ann Dill, widow of Dr. Armstrong Dill, of York County, Penn., a lady of great beauty and merit.

 

On Wednesday after the President’s return to Princeton with his amiable wife, a deputation of the students waited upon him to congratulate him upon the joyful occasion, and he politely gave them two days’ holiday. In the evening, in regard to their worthy President, and to testify their joy on this happy marriage, the students illuminated the college, which afforded a grand and

 

beautiful sight to the numerous spectators, who had assembled upon the occasion. There were 600 candles in the front of the college, which were lighted almost instantly on a signal given by the discharge of a cannon, and on a like signal

they were all immediately extinguished. During the illumination, which lasted about an hour, a number of students in the belfry entertained the great concourse of people who attended, with a most agreeable and delightful concert of music from different kinds of instruments. The wh??e was conducted with elegance and taste.

 

Joy sparkled in every eye,

 

And every heart was glad.
