I'm also researching Daniel Pillsbury and trying to find out for sure who his parents are. I would love to compare information with you. Please email me. So, far I've gotten a copy of Daniel's military record and a copy of the marriage record for his 1st marriage. I've written away for a copy of his 2nd marriage record but am still waiting to receive it. I’ve also searched census records. I've been unable to locate a copy of his or his wife Elizabeth's death certificates or find any probate records. Have you been able to locate either of their death certificates? I have their death dates. I’m fairly certain his father’s name was also Daniel - I know he had no sister’s only brothers - one of his brother’s was named Nehemiah Pillsbury – one of his brother’s had a son also named Daniel Pillsbury. Would love to compare notes with you. Please contact me.
