Since I posted that inquiry, I have gotten some info on her. Her full name was Mary Catterina Pettivino and she was born 15 Aug 1847 in Vernante, Cuneo, Italy. Her father's name was Pietra Pettivino. Her husband was Georgio Antonio Pelissero from Vernante, Italy. They immigrated to the US in 1880 with 6 children and then changed their names to Pillow. Their last son's name was Fred Pillow born in Texas - he is the ancestor of my daughter-in-law. I would like to find the marriage date of Fred and wife and also Catterina and her husband. If you have any further info let me know, or if I can give you more info I will be happy to. I got most of my info from a Leah Jones who had actually been to Vernante Italy and met some of the family back there who she says have traced the pelissero family back to 1500s.
