Immediately after his marriage he located on a tract of land yet in his possession, and in real earnest set about the business of taming the wilderness as, which, under his strong hand, guided by his consumate skill and taste, has long snce been made to rejoice and bloom as the rose; he is one of the most successful and dextrous farmers in the neighborhood.. .He votes the Democratic ticket.

Peter Dillow Sr was Marriage; Person Source.3 He was born on 1 May 1797 at Salisbury, Rowan County, North Carolina.4,1 Peter was probably a free white male, under 10 years old, in Jacob Dillow's household on the 1800 Census at Rowan County, North Carolina; Jacob Dillow 1 male 0-9 (Peter); 1 male 25-44; 3 females 10-15 (probably mistake for 3 female 0-9 - Elizabeth 7, Susannah 5, and an unknown female); 1 female 25-44 (wife Susannah.)5 John and Peter was probably a free white male, age 10 and under 16, in Jacob Dillow's household on the 1810 Census at Rowan County, North Carolina; same page as Peter but 7 familes down; Jacob Dillo 3 males under 10; 2 males 10-16; 1 male 45 and over; 2 females 16-26; 1 female 45 & over (Susannah.)6 He married Mary Polly Lentz at Union County, Illinois, on 18 December 1819.4,1 As previously recorded, Peter came into possession of 80 acres, or one-half of his father's 160 acres purchased on 31 Oct 1818. Following his death, Peter's estate was not probated, since he had no real estate left, having sold all his land to his two youngest sons, Paul Dillow and Adam Dllow.
In his 1883 "History of Alexander, Union, and Pulaski Counties, Illinois," written when Mary was yet living, Willam Henr Perrin confirms she and Peter were blessed with fifteen children. Of these, only twelve have been identified, and it is assumed that three either died as infants or failed to reach maturity. Of the twelve, nine were sons and three were daughters. Two of the ons, Levi L and Caleb, died as a result of service in the US Civil War. The seven remaining sons, Charles, Jacob C., Wiley, Henry, Peter Jr, Paul and Adam established farms and homes, and became the most impressive group of prosperous farmers from a single Dillow family in Union Co History. All but one son, Jacob C Dillow, remained in the near vicinity of their birth, but Jacob C moved to Dongola, IL in 1850, a distance of some six or seven miles, and established what became the original Dillow family of Dongola.
For the eriod in which they lived, Peter and Mary both enjoyed long lives; he died at the age of 83 and she at 81. Their original monument still stands, but the 120 years since Peter's death has all but destroyed its lettering. The writer has placed a new at its base, together with ones in memory of each of their parents at its sides. It is intereting to note that the deaths of Mary of two of her sons, Jacob C and Wiley, occurred within eleven weeks of each other in 1883.
Perrin's 1883 history also records that Peter was a man of the old pioneer type and liked by all who knew him, making few or no enemies,and making and keeping many friends. Peter and Mary were members of the Lutheran Church."1 Peter was listed as the head of a family on the 1850 Census at West Part of District Number 2, Union County, Illinois. 533 555 Peter Dillow 53 male farmer 360 NC

To these 80 acres he added another 40 acres, continuous with these. About 1850 Peter built on his land the handsome log house which still stands. It is a box-like two story structure with porch above and below. Large logs are still visible beneath modern wooden siding. After his death, Peter's estate was not probated. It is believed he had no property remaining, having sold it to his youngest sons Paul and Adam. In the history of Union County, published in 1883, Willian Henry Perrin wrote of Peter: 'He came to this county with his parents. . .and here he endured with others the privations of private life.

We know the names of 12 of his children. Two of his nine sons died during the Civil War. Seven became prosperous farmers, six of them living not more than 2-3 miles away from their parents. This cluster of farmer sons in a single Dillow family would be rivaled later by the six sons of Peter Dillow (1820-1903), son of Samuel Dillow. Polly lived with her son Paul after Peter's death.'. Perrin's History lists Peter's death as July 1, 1880. Paul Dillow (letter of 9-11-90) has marriage date as 12-16-1819; and death as 6-29-1880. He writes: 'I am descended from Peter, Sr. and Mary (Lentz) Dillow. . .Peter is, by far, the largest of the nine families. There were 15 children born, three having died as infants or failed to reach maturity.. . .Peter and Mary did more to populate the county with Dillows than anybody before or since.

     Mary Polly Lentz was Marriage; Person Source.2 She B26- Mary 'Polly' Lentz was born 15 Mar 1801 in Rowan Co., NC. She was sponsored at baptism by George Hartline, her uncle, brother of Magdalena Hartline. My understanding has always been that 'Polly' is a nickname.
She married around 1818-19 to Peter Dillow, who was born 1 May 1797 in Rowan Co., NC, son of Jacob Dillow and Susanna Shuman Dillow.
They appear in the 1850 census of Union Co., IL, Dwelling No. 555, Family No. 555:

Space is not available for all of their records. Darrel Dexter plans to publish a more complete record of the IL relatives.
She died on 7 Jul 1883 in Union Co., IL. Unrecognized GEDCOM data: Unknown GEDCOM tag: _UID 834841F1C938E349A15632C67A20D22AAFF8. Mary Polly Lentz also went by the name of Polly. She was born on 15 March 1801 at Rowan County, North Carolina; Source states: 'Mar 15 (1801), Polly (Lentz), baptized Mar 12, 1802, parents Peter Lentz, Sponsor Ge. Hartlein.' (The sponsor was George Hartline, her uncle, brother of Magdalena Hartline.)3,4 She was born on 15 March 1802 at Rowan County, North Carolina; Perrin's History lists Mary's place of birth as Cape Girardeau Co., Mo.5 Mary Polly Lentz was also known as Mary Polly Lence. She married Peter Dillow Sr at Union County, Illinois, on 18 December 1819.6,5 Her married name was Dillow.4 Mary Polly Lentz lived; NC, IL.1 As previously recorded, Peter came into possession of 80 acres, or one-half of his father's 160 acres purchased on 31 Oct 1818. Following his death, Peter's estate was not probated, since he had no real estate left, having sold all his land to his two youngest sons, Paul Dillow and Adam Dllow.
In his 1883 "History of Alexander, Union, and Pulaski Counties, Illinois," written when Mary was yet living, Willam Henr Perrin confirms she and Peter were blessed with fifteen children. Of these, only twelve have been identified, and it is assumed that three either died as infants or failed to reach maturity. Of the twelve, nine were sons and three were daughters. Two of the ons, Levi L and Caleb, died as a result of service in the US Civil War. The seven remaining sons, Charles, Jacob C., Wiley, Henry, Peter Jr, Paul and Adam established farms and homes, and became the most impressive group of prosperous farmers from a single Dillow family in Union Co History. All but one son, Jacob C Dillow, remained in the near vicinity of their birth, but Jacob C moved to Dongola, IL in 1850, a distance of some six or seven miles, and established what became the original Dillow family of Dongola.
For the eriod in which they lived, Peter and Mary both enjoyed long lives; he died at the age of 83 and she at 81. Their original monument still stands, but the 120 years since Peter's death has all but destroyed its lettering. The writer has placed a new at its base, together with ones in memory of each of their parents at its sides. It is intereting to note that the deaths of Mary of two of her sons, Jacob C and Wiley, occurred within eleven weeks of each other in 1883.
Perrin's 1883 history also records that Peter was a man of the old pioneer type and liked by all who knew him, making few or no enemies,and making and keeping many friends. Peter and Mary were members of the Lutheran Church."5 Mary, Nancy, Wiley, Henry, Peter, Catherine, Levi, Caleb, Paul and Adam was listed as a household member living with Peter Dillow Sr on the 1850 Census at West Part of District Number 2, Union County, Illinois; 533 555 Peter Dillow 53 male farmer 360 NC
