Tell us more! Is this an oral tradition? If so, who is the oldest living person in your Pineo family and can they remember who told them? I, too, have stories passed down, attributed to my gt grandfather(Charles E. Greene 1857-1936), telling of his mother's people: 1) Pineo was originally a French Huguenot who fled to England and then to the US (everyone seems to agree this is true); 2)That a branch of the Pineo family at one time owned the property that Trinity Church now occupies in New York City, but abandoned it. Descendants tried to get the title back in court, but were unsuccessful. Anyone out there ever heard this one?
