Hello Alex,

Thomas Paul Pillow is my grandfather. He was born in
Burleson County Texas January 1857. He was married to Theodocia Hoover in Washington County Texas during August
1879. The County records indicate the 9th but the family
bible has the 13th as date of marriage.

First, here is a part of the family tree:

America, Settled in Virginia, married
Mary ??? about 1735.

Mary ???, born 1737 in Virginia, married
Milly ??? about 1765 in North Carolina.

Sarah Vaughn. John D. Pillow died on
04 December 1837 in Pulaski, Giles
County Tenn.

Richard Pillow Fourth child of John D. Pillow and
Sarah Vaughn, born 13 October 1804 in
Virginia, he later moved to Giles
County Tenn., married Elizabeth
Fitzgerald, following the birth of the
first two or three children they moved
to Burleson County Texas, probably in
1833 or 1834. Richard Pillow died on
30 November 1878 and is buried in the
Pillow cemetery just a few miles
north of Lyons, Texas in Burleson County.

Alonzo DeCalb Pillow
First child of Richard Pillow and
Elizabeth Fitzgerald, born 25 February
1830 in Giles County Tenn., married
Huldah C. Graham on 04 March 1856. One
child born to Alonzo and Huldah in
January 1857 in Burleson County Texas.
That child was Thomas Paul Pillow.
Thomas Pillow said that his mother died
when he was about one year old. Thomas
Paul Pillow lived in both Washington
County Texas and Burleson County Texas
then moved with his family to Trinity
County Texas some time between 1900 and
