  378. Maxine Pilling Rodgers, "Richard Pilling, A Family Heritage" It should be mentioned that although all references to this volume are listed as "Questionable", this is because the book is neither a valid primary or secondary source. Despite this, it should be observed that almost all the contemporary entries in it come as the result of correspondence with the immediate families of the individuals listed. The true level of reliability is probably more close to that of "Living Information". (Red Deer, by the author, 1980), p314-15
