Luke Dillon

  • Born: Ireland
  • Marriage: Susannah Garrett

bullet  General Notes:

This story has been told by several sources in the family: "Luke Dillon, a red headed weaver of Kilkenny, Ireland, won the heart and hand of Susanna Garret, daughter of a man of wealth and fame. Susanna's father disinherited her after marrying one whom he styled a "snotty nosed weaver". They emigrated to
Pennsylvania where Susanna learned to weave and they supported themselves by their calling. Luke was a drinking man and went to the mill on horseback five miles away, starting home in the evening facing a snowstorm with a bottle of liquor in his pocket, got off the horse, sat down by a tree, and there
froze to death and was not found for six weeks". He was married to Susan GARRETT about 1709 in Kilkearney, Ireland.


Luke married Susannah Garrett.
