Pillow Family Genealogy Forum
According to a family genealogy I found in my local library (Greene Co., AR) by Dora Pillow Hunter from 1986, she states that:
"The surname Pilleau was changed to Pillow during the Revolutionary War and the D.A.R. (Daughters of American Revolution) considers the name Pillar and possibly Pillo as a corruption of the name Pillow."
I have also found some early ancestors(1700s) in my Pillow tree with the alternate spelling last name of Pillar.
