1784 Jasper Pillow, the ancestor of the family, emigrated from England and settled in the colony of Virginia, about 1740. He had three sons, John, Jasper and William, all of whom were soldiers in the Revolutionary war, and continued in the service to its glorious termination, at Yorktown.

John Pillow emigrated to Cumberland in 1784. His wife was Miss Johnston, whose five brothers were soldiers of 1776. John Pillow settled near Nashville, where, with his two sons, William Pillow and Gideon Pillow, he encountered all the hardships, and perils, and privations of frontier life, and a constant conflict with the various Indian tribes, which, to the close of his life, infested and devastated the country.

Gideon Pillow, the father of Gen. Gideon J. Pillow, late of the United States Army, in Mexico, was an active soldier in the expedition against Nickajack, and swam the Tennessee River in the celebrated capture of that Indian fortress.

In the further Annals of Tennessee, Col. William Pillow will be frequently mentioned as a gallant officer under Gen. Jackson, at Taladega, and as a quiet, unobtrusive citizen, as amiable in private life as he was vigilant in camp and courageous in battle.

Nickajack and Running Water Towns, were the principal crossing places for the Creeks in their war excursions over

The First Families on Blue Creek have connections right back to the Gideon Johnson families of Dan River. These would be the Pillow Families and Abner Johnson either the brother or son of Gideon Johnson.


 
Where Gideon Johnson owned lands at is a disputed area between NC and Va.

The Smith Irvine River, Where we find the Murrells on Muster Creek and Our Hudson Johnson on Buffalo Creek these creeks will flow into this area of the Dan River. 

Now Matrimony Creek is also a Creek flowing out of Henry CO Va into this same Waterway. Matrimony Creek is where we find the Shropshire Families and a few others like the hill familes. Joel Shropshire son Seymore Samier Shropshire his Uncles families are in the first records of Matrimony Primitive Baptist Church.

Joel Shropshire married Marry Polly Johnson daughter of Hudson Johnson and wife Agness, whose off spring are in District 10 as Anne Johnson widow in 1837 by Elijah Dodson of Jeffery Johnson land owner in Stafford Co Va in 1720-1730 ERA.

1780 circa Ursula Pillow was born in Whetstone Creek, Guilford (now Rockingham) Co., North Carolina, and died May 1854 in Davidson Co., Tennessee. She married Capt. William Rains on 09 Sep 1795 in Davidson Co., Tennessee, son of John Rains and Christiannah Gowen. He was born circa 1774 in Virginia, and died 09 Jun 1812 in Davidson Co., Tennessee.   Col. William Pillow was the bondsman for this marriage.    The only child I have seen for them was Hance Hamilton Rains. http://oursoutherncousins.com/pillow3.html Notes From NC Matrimony Creek Johnson and Allied familes (This is the stronghold of Joel Shropshire married to Mary Polly Johnson daughter of Hudson Johnson and wife Agness)

April 14, 1793 John Rains was commissioned captain of a "company of mounted infantrymen called into service for the protection of the frontier of Mero District," according to Robert Hays, muster master. Capt. Rains wrote the names of the men included in his command. Among the 75 men enrolled for three months service were Sgt. William Pillow and privates William Gowen, John Gowen, John Shute, William Rains. http://bz.llano.net/gowen/manuscript/gowenms044.htm

A John Pillow Sr. was killed by Indians near Nashville in May or June 1793, and his wife declined to administer the estate on July 9; that task fell to son William Pillow.

The Pillow family migrated into northern Williamson Co. at the turn of the century, but by 1808, most were relocating to Maury Co. with a few working south to Giles.

Among the Pillow children were:

Col. William Pillow (1772-1868, Maury Co., TN) who married second Portia Thomas of Williamson Co., TN in 1812;

Gideon Pillow Sr. (Sept. 31, 1774-Feb. 26, 1830, Maury) who married Annie Payne (Feb. 20, 1777-April 10, 1864);



Col. William Pillow gained a reputation as an Indian fighter, killing Chief Big Foot, serving under Gen. Andrew Jackson, and eventually settling in Columbia, Maury Co., TN.

Abner Pillow surveyed, owned and developed land across Middle and West Tennessee after serving as a major in the War of 1812.

1780 circa Ursula Pillow was born in Whetstone Creek, Guilford (now Rockingham) Co., North Carolina, and died May 1854 in Davidson Co., Tennessee. She married Capt. William Rains on 09 Sep 1795 in Davidson Co., Tennessee, son of John Rains and Christiannah Gowen. He was born circa 1774 in Virginia, and died 09 Jun 1812 in Davidson Co., Tennessee.    Col.

Gideon Johnson Sr. had entered 250 acres of new land on the north side of Dan River - across the water from his original holdings -- in May 1780. In January 1787, he "sold" the property for a mere five pounds to son-in-law John Pillow. On Oct. 8, 1788 - after holding the property less than two years - Pillow sold the land to his brother-in-law William Allen Johnson for an unspecified sum.

Also on Oct. 8, 1788, Pillow sold another 640 acres that he had originally patented, also on the north side of Dan River, to William Johnson for 100 pounds.

An October start to the trip to Nashville corresponded to the norm for these early western moves. Families typically raised and harvested a crop, which was sold to provide the money for farm rental and supplies when they arrived at their new homes. Spring moves were avoided because they occupied precious weeks that prevented spring planting. An October trip to Nashville would have placed the Pillows and Johnsons past the mountains well before the passes closed with winter snow.

The Pillows decided to move to Nashville in 1788.

The Avery or Old North Carolina Trace opened Sept. 25, 1788 to allow more convenient transport for Revolutionary War veterans coming west to claim their bounty lands. The trace, however, was only 10-feet wide and too rugged for wagons, so settlers had to arrange for sending their household goods by water.
The Pillows and Abner Johnson's family located on Brown's Creek or near Brown's Station southwest of Nashville, where John Pillow bought a 50-acre tract from Samuel Barton on July 14, 1791. No record of his Revolutionary War grant has been found.
John Pillow Sr. was killed by Indians near Nashville in May or June 1793, and his wife declined to administer the estate on July 9; that task fell to son William Pillow.

The Pillow family migrated into northern Williamson Co. at the turn of the century, but by 1808, most were relocating to Maury Co. with a few working south to Giles.

Among the Pillow children were:

Col. William Pillow (1772-1868, Maury Co., TN) who married second Portia Thomas of Williamson Co., TN in 1812;

Gideon Pillow Sr. (Sept. 31, 1774-Feb. 26, 1830, Maury) who married Annie Payne (Feb. 20, 1777-April 10, 1864);

John Pillow (March 25, 1781-July 20, 1854) who married Mary Fitzpatrick and moved to Giles Co., TN;

Mordecai Pillow (1775-1828, Logan Co., KY) married Mary Baker Johnson, his cousin;

Abner Pillow (Jan. 23, 1784-Oct. 25, 1860) who married Mary S. Thomas, Portia's sister;

Ursula Pillow (1780-after 1836, Nashville) married Capt. William Rains;

Elizabeth Ann Pillow (1778-after 1860, Maury) married William Murray and Thomas Latchin Due;

Mary Pillow (Feb. 19, 1777-Jan. 13, 1867, Rutherford Co.) married Hartwell Miles; and Barbary (a) (possibly married a Johnson).
Col. William Pillow gained a reputation as an Indian fighter, killing Chief Big Foot, serving under Gen. Andrew Jackson, and eventually settling in Columbia, Maury Co., TN.

Abner Pillow surveyed, owned and developed land across Middle and West Tennessee after serving as a major in the War of 1812.


Not only did they become wealthy, but Gideon Pillow and Anne Payne Pillow, who are buried in Rose Hill Cemetery, Columbia, TN, were parents to one of the most controversial American military commanders of the era -- Gideon Johnson Pillow Jr., who served as a major general in the Mexican-American War and brigadier general for the Confederacy.

Aspersions on Gen. Pillow's competence and courage in the Mexican War led to a major political feud because he was a close friend and political ally of President James Knox Polk.

Gen. Pillow (June 8, 1806-Oct. 8, 1878) married Mary E. Martin in 1831 and, after her death, widow Mary Dickson Trigg
The Pillows married into some of the most prominent families in Tennessee. Gen. Gideon Johnson Pillow's sister Cynthia Holland Pillow (1810-Sept. 16, 1892) wed, as a second husband, Tennessee Gov. Aaron V. Brown;

sister Narcissa Pillow (Jan. 17, 1811-April 28, 1883) married George W. Martin, a Giles Countian nominated for governor before his death in 1854;

and sister Amanda married Judge West H. Humphreys.

Ursula Johnson Pillow appeared to be living with her son William Pillow in the 1830 Maury census, but other sources report she died in1822.


Like his father, William Allen Johnson was a small-scale slaveholder. On the 1823 tax rolls, he listed three slaves to help him farm 272 acres on Fountain Creek. His eldest known son Alexander Johnson also listed three slaves for a smaller farm of 93.5 acres.

Alexander Johnson (April 14, 1782, Rockingham-Feb. 7, 1857, Maury) married Mary Jessaline "Polly" Ballanfant, the daughter of Frenchman Jean and Louisa "Lucy" Yeoman Ballanfant, on Aug. 6, 1805 in Rockingham Co. Alexander Johnson served several terms on the Maury Co. administrative court. With the Pillows, Alexander Johnson was among the leading Democrats in Maury County in the 1840s and often chaired political meetings in support of James Knox Polk, a neighbor, governor and finally the U.S. President.

Sessions Term 1832 [Robert Mack and William Pillow gave the standard supporting affidavit.]

Died 02 Jan 1765 SQUIRE BOONE Born 25 Nov 1696 (O.S.) Devonshire, England Died 02 Jan 1765 Rowan County, North Carolina.  Married Sarah Morgan 23 Sep 1720 (O.S.) Philadelphia County, PA Born 1700 Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania Died 1777 Rowan County, North Carolina

Squire Boone

1751, Squire Boone Sr moved to the Yadkin River in North Carolina. He lived at the Dutchman’s Creek Settlement, at the “Forks of the Yadkin”, about 20 miles north of Salisbury. Here he obtained several square miles of land, which were portioned out to his children as they married. The Forks of the Yadkin was one of the main Brethren communities in the colonial Carolinas.

The 640 acres granted to Squire Boone in April 1753 also has been identified as being on Buffalo Creek and the other 640 acres, where he built his family home, was granted to Squire in December, 1753. The Boone house was described as typical of the more substantial border cabins of the time, being a single-storied, one-roomed structure about twenty feet square which was divided in two by a curtain for sleeping. Built of faced logs with a pitched roof, it had a deep fireplace and oak floors. [Note 43] The reference to land on Buffalo Creek apparently refers to Boone's tract on Grant's Creek since Buffalo Creek also is a tributary of Dutchmans Creek, a short distance upstream from the mouth of Grant's Creek. [Note 44] http://files.usgwarchives.net/pa/berks/bios/boon0001.txt
This is the David Johnson, who bought the farm of Morgan Bryan, sold it March 11, 1751 to Michael Warren, who owned it at the time the acknowledgement was secured in order to perfect the title http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/d/e/u/John-Deutsch-Dexter/FILE/0008page.html
Vol. 3, page 340, September 27, 1753 - Commission to Edward Hughes, Squire Boone and James Carter to take acknowledgement of Martha, wife of Morgan Bryan, to deed, Bryan to David Johnson. Executed and returned May 20, 1754. http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/d/e/u/John-Deutsch-Dexter/FILE/0008page.html

Austin Cooper claims that Squire Boone Jr was put in the ministry by Elder John Hendricks one of the Brethren Elders at Dutchman’s Creek, who was central in the Pietist Eternal Restoration [Universalist] movement [possibly even the “John H” of the 1796 Annual Meeting Minutes ban that lost the Brethren churches of the Carolinas] and moved to the Drake’s Creek congregation south of Bowling Green KY). The Baptists claim Squire Boone Jr as the first Baptist minister in Kentucky and Indiana. George Boone is listed as an early minister of the Tate’s Creek Baptist Church, southeast of Lexington, just below the site of Boone Station. In his last days, George Boone is reported to have moved to the Indiana hills along the Ohio River, just west of Louisville, and lived as a Pietist Solitary (in the tradition of the Ephrata Cloisters PA). http://www.cob-net.org/docs/brethrenlife_migrations.htm
