     On the memorial pages for the sons who died in Arkansas, there is biographical material which conflicts with the census data: Martha Blanche (1853-1933) who might be Mattie K?; Samuel Nolan (1858-1890) who died in Conway County, Arkansas; Frances Inex (1866-1889); and, Mary Eliza (1869-?).

     Captain James Dillard was born on 29 October 1755, son of James Dillard and Mary Ann Hunt, in Buckingham County, Virginia Colony.1,2,3,4

     James began military service in February 1776 by enlisting "as a Cadet in Capt. Samuel J. Cabell's Company of Riflemen. The same year he was appointed Lt. in Capt. James Franklin's Company of Infantry, belonging to the 10th Virginia Regiment on the Continental Establishment."5

     After February 1776, "'owing to Capt. Franklin's resignation in 1777, his command devolved on me, which office I filled for six months.' On November 28, 1809, Col. Samuel J. Cabell testified that 'Capt. James Dillard joined my company of Riflemen as a Cadet in the month of Feb., 1776, after which he was appointed a Lieut. in Capt. James Franklin's Co. of Infantry belonging to the 10th Virginia Regiment on Contl. Estabmt. and commanded by Col. Edward Stevens and I do further certify that the sd. Capt. Dillard acted as Commandant of a Company for several months whilst I was Brigade Inspector to the Brigade to which the 10th Virginia Regiment was attached.1,5'

     Captain James Dillard, 26, married Jane Starke, 22, on 3 April 1782.1,3

     On 10 February 1806, James Dillard witnessed the marriage bond of his daughter, Nancy Wiatt Dillard, with Moses Phillips at Amherst County, Virginia.6

     On 28 August 1828, he "applied for a pension due him for his service in the Revolutionary War, under the act of 15 May 1828 and 15 Dec 1829 sent additional proof of his service:
Amherst Court House of Virginia
15th Dec, 1829.
Sir,
     Received your favor under date of 27th of November, 1828, and mark its contents as to its long delay and am much surprised when you inform me the Books of the War Department does not corroborate with my declaration and claim under the above Act. It might be expected they would not be perfect but did not supposed they would have been so much lacking as through your information I believe they are.
     I now say that I know of no cause why they should not correspond with my declaration and claim under the above Act.
     I should regret very much to think after serving my country through the war of the Revolution, that I should dishonor myself by sending forward a declaration and claim under the above Act that I was not legally, but honorably entitled to under the above Act.
     I did not know when I sent forward my claim that further proof would be necessary as I fully expected the Books of the War Department kept in time of that war would have justified my declaration and claim under the above Act. Agreeable to your advice I now send you the Deposition of Moses Wright, one of my old and reputable soldiers who enlisted with me when I was a Lieut. and also a certificate from the Virginia Land Office showing that I had drawn my bounty land as a Capt. in the Continental Line, which I hope will prove satisfactorily my service and rank in that Army. You will please write on to Amherst Court House, Virginia, as heretofore. The branch of the United States Bank in the City of Richmond, Virginia, is the most convenient to me.
     Hope you will write on as soon as convenient if I am to receive anything for my youthful service. Now at the age of seventy four can expect to enjoy it but a short time.
     My hand has got very unsteady - fear you will hardly read it.
     I am, Sir,
     Respectfully your Obedient serv't.,
     James Dillard
