I have a much later reference to a Pillion family from France on the 1880 U.S. Census in Ohio
NameRelationship Year Gender Race BirthCensus
Francis Pillionself1818MWFRANOH Jane Pillionwife1828FWFRANOH
I think these are their children:
Henry Pillionson1861MWOHOH Anna Pilliondau1865FWOHOH
I am looking at the 2 1/2 page listing of all people by the name of PILLION in the United States listed in the 1880 Census.I do have access to the 1880 Census at our Public Library on computer and I will double check that this info is correct the next time I go to the library.I think it is.This was the only PILLION family on the 1880 Census that listed thier birth as FRANCE, although many others were born in the USA and I have no way of identifying their birth place.
