Family research shows that John Pilon, born 1714 in Canterbury, changed the family name to Pillow.

The Pilons/Pillows have left their mark all over the world and portraits of Edward and Ann are hanging in Historical Society Museum (New York). The Pilons also gave land and financial donations for a school to be built in Canterbury.

This information was shared with the Huguenot Museum by one of our visitors.
