I think my family has had a ton of name changes. GGGrandfather was Samuel Pilot b. 1819 in S.C. and that is all we know of his family.Think that his surname was Pylant or Pyland but not sure. Has anyone run across a son of a Pylant or Pyland that was named Samuel b. 1819 in S.C.?Samuel died in the late 1800s in Choctaw Co., Al.
