Biography of George Dillon
Marin County, CA Biographies





George Dillon. The subject of this sketch was born in Ireland March 12, 1826. He emigrated to the United States in 1846, first settling in Tennessee, but afterwards moved to Missouri. In 1856 Mr. Dillon crossed the plains to California and settled near his present farm, but did not take up his residence on the land he now owns until 1859. For nearly a quarter of a century has Mr. Dillon been a resident of Margin county and Tamales township. That these years have been fraught with changes, which have crept on year after year so slowly but surely that they were hardly perceptible, there is no doubt. Not only has the appearance of the country changed, but Mr. Dillon, too, bears the marks of time. But with what feelings of pride can we look back over all these years and now be able to say, that the subject of this sketch has so lived that now he is honored and respected by the people of this county, and beloved by his children and many friends. He resides on a beautiful ranch of nine hundred and six acres, which fringes the shores of the Pacific ocean. He Married Matilda Blevings in 1854. She was born in Missouri, on the 24th of December, 1827. Their children are: William Riley, who was born at Fort Riley on the plains May 21, 1856; Fannie, Jerome, Ellen, George, Catherine, Joseph, Ann, John, and one deceased.
