Thanks for your quick reply! In answer to your question about a Mcgehee, I don't recall seeing the name among those I have traced - which signifies nothing really - my tracings have been a bit limited. However, if you contact firstname.lastname@example.org
, she may have more info in that direction. There were so few people here in those early days,
it seems quite likely that the name is on the "tree" somewhere. I am seeking to track back to England/France.
Then I will spread out a bit. Thruout the Pillow line, the popular names seemed to be James, William, John, Gideon -
you stumble on them over and over and it gets really confusing! We know the Pillows were largely in VA and TN -
and in the northern part of NC, which, colonially was a part
of VA at one time. More confusion.... Let me know what you
find and I will explore in the meantime. Nice to hear from you.
