Pillow/Kirksey md. 1858-Lawrence Co. TN

I am a brand new Pillow researcher, needing information.
I have searched for over 10 years for info on my gr grandfather, W. Henry Kirksey. in 1886 Wood Co. TX, died abt 1895 in Fannin Co. TX. His birthdate and birthplace are unknown. Through tedious process of elimination, I now believe him to be the son of Alex C. Kirksey and Mary J. Kirksey, who were married 16 Dec 1858 in Lawrence Co. TN.
They had a son, William Henry Kirksey, b abt 1863.
Currently, I am in SLC, researching at the LDS FHL. I am in hopes that someone can help in directing me in the right direction toward finding the parents of Mary J. Pillow Kirksey's parents. She was born in TN, probably Giles or Maury Co. abt. 1839-1840. In 1850 Census of Giles Co, TN, there is a Willis Pillow, age 49 b. in VA, apparently a widower with 7 children. One is a Mary Jane, age 13. Could this be the family I'm looking for???
I am copying every bit of PILLOW info I can find in TN from early 1800's to 1850's, while I'm at the library, especially in Middle and West TN.
Please post any info on parents of Mary J. Pillow ---if before 5 Aug 2001--- to this forum or else to my temporary(while traveling) email address, which is < >
