Richard, where does the Pillow family fit into your query? Can you give more on dates and/or places. I have sketchy information about a Juda Pillow marrying an Unknown Allen and having a son RichardPillow Allen, but nothing else to link this people. I would like to know about your family and/or connection. Are they from Tn, Ky, Il, Ks,or Iowa? Today, yesterday, or 1850s? Where are you in relation to this Juda and Allen connection?
