Brick walls—we all have them. This would be a good week to write down what you know about your brick wall problem. (Sometimes just writing about it can help!) You could write about an ancestor who used to be a brick wall. Or get creative—maybe an ancestor who was a bricklayer?
The brick wall that haunts me week in and week out is to figure out the parents of my 5x-great-grandfather Peter Dill (~1770-1839). His children and grandchildren have variously cited his place of birth as Georgia, Virginia or Pennsylvania. He is either German/Pennsylvania Dutch or Scots-Irish. Some researchers think his given name was Peter Diehl and that he was born in Germany. There are tantalizing clues that he may be related to Georgia Loyalist Philip Dill, who may be the grandfather of Peter’s wife Mary Ann Dill. Did he really marry his cousin? Or do they just coincidentally have the same surname? Other DNA matches hint to connections to the Dill families of Kent County, Delaware and/or another Dill family group in Greenville, South Carolina.
SO. MANY. QUESTIONS.
More about Peter Dill here (he is referred to as Peter Dill 1, and much of the material is now out-of-date).
