I came across a possible lead in the Gen.com library Military Records: New York in the Revolution & War of 1812, Refugees from Long Island to Connecticut, 1776, Surnames O-P page 501.Text is as follows under Elias Pelletreau..."The census of 1776 showed that he was over 50 years old: and that besides his wife, he had two sons, both over 16 years old.(A. 53)He was b. at Southampton, May 31, 1726; m. Dec. 29, 1748, Sarah, dau. of Judge Hugh Gelston (See Gelston); d. Nov. 2, 1810.Of his children, Francis 3 and Hugh 3 d. y; Hannah 3, m. Judge Pliny Hillyer, of Simsbury, and has descendents now living at Westfield, Mass.; John 3 and Elias 3 were the refugees below." At a first read, I interpreted this passage to imply that Pliny's descendents were his children, grandchildren etc., especially since Pliny lived, died and was buried in Granby CT.I did not consider any potential connection to Amy Hillyer as the Stiles/Hillyer marriage date was 1754.However, descendents was often used in a broader context (i.e., cousins, nephews, neices, etc.) which could indicate a family connection.In addition, sometimes family connections provide a network that can develop connections or introductions that can influence indiviuals to move to a different community or state.I'd recommend you concentrate research on families with close degrees of kinship and within several generations of Pliny's family as a starting point.Good luck!
