Looking for Bryan Gillan born somewhere in Canada c 1820. Married Mary
MURPHY somewhere in Canada (either Quebec or Ontario) c 1850.
Three children of the marriage, all born in Grantham Twp., Ontario,
Matthew b. 1852; James b. 1855; Margaret b. 1858. All children were
baptized at St. Catherine of Alexandria Cathedral, St. Catharines,
Bryan remains my brick wall. The only evidence I have that he was born
in Canada is from the 1920 U.S. Census -- information given by his
daughter (my grandmother) Margaret.
In 1861 Ontario census, Mary is listed as widow. Thus Bryan died
sometime between 1858 and 1861, but no proof of death or burial.
Another puzzle. I have found the name listed as KILLEN in church records
and on census, but GILLAN on other census and in newspaper reports.
Any help or suggestions?
Mary in Michigan
