Albert Leroy Dillon, Jr. was born on 7 September 1904 in Hume, Edgar Co, Illinois.  His parents were Albert Leroy Dillon, Sr. and Lois Dawson Dillon.

Albert Leroy Dillon, Jr.
Date unknown
 - In the following transcription, Albert Leroy Dillon's birth was sent from his aunt in Oswego, Kansas to Phoenix, Arizona.  I think the transcribed date of 1905 is correct given that Albert Leroy's birth date was 7 September 1904 and his mother was Lois Dawson Dillon. -

Letters to Connie Rodenberger Fulton; 1901 to 1908
[Transcribed by Charles A Rodenberger, Sept. 1997]

The next envelope is a postal service envelope with no return address and a 2 cent stamp postmarked JAN 15 10 AM with no year from Oswego Kans.  The back postmark is Phoenix JAN 18 8-30A 1906/  The envelope is addressed in pencil in Katie's hand to Mr. A. H. Fulton/Phoenix/Ariz.  Three letters are enclosed.
The first is written on ruled large tablet paper.  Two letters are dated Jan 1905, but Sammie's is dated Jan 1906.  I presume the other are mistakes. [Charles A. Rodenberger]
