    • BIRTH: !Birth and death dates from tombstone.

      BIOGRAPHY: !Family tradition says Susan was married 1st to ----Furr and had two children, possibly named Alexander and Louisa. Reputedly there was ill feeling between the Furr family and the Dills family. A member of the Dills family was murdered by the Furr's and then Susan's husband was killed by the Dills family. According to the story, when Susan married Henry Dills, the Furr family took her two children away, possibly into TN. Shortly after their marriage, Susan and Henry moved to TN, where their first two children were born. Later they returned to Macon Co., NC.

      BURIAL: Email from Charles Swainson 8 Oct 2002:
      "Dear Shirley,
      I was reading the email from some of the researchers about Macon Co. cemeteries. I travelled over to Macon Co. (Franklin) two weeks ago and found the cemetery that Henry Kimsey Dills and Susan are buried. It is several miles south of Franklin on the road to Haynesville. It is called Cartoogechaye and is hard to find. Go south from Franklin until the four lane road narrows down to two lanes. Immediately turn left and go about one half mile to Cartoogechaye Baptist Church. Go about 220 yards beyond church and turn left on Papa's Mountain road. About 150 yards or so up road, cemetery road turns off to right. It is not marked!!! There was no marker for Hezekiah but Susan and many of her children are buried there. I did not check to see if any cemetery records were available. The land for this cemetery was donated by Henry and Susan and the small stream at the base of the mountain is called Dills' Creek.
      I thought this might help some of the searchers.
      Chuck Swainson"
