Does Edward fit into your line? We'd love to hear from you The links from the names offer you additional information about these family members.
Frank Edward Gillen's California Death Certificate is our first confirmation that the father of Grandfather Frank Gillen was truly Edward and his mother's maiden name was Smith. By family tradition and the death certificate, Grandfather Frank was born in South Bend, Indiana on 18 January 1869.
One story has a parcel of land wagered and lost in a poker game, land upon which Notre Dame was built. Another story has Edward meeting the girl he married on board the ship that brought them to America. Family tradition and the death certificate substantiate his wife's maiden name as Smith, we need to verify whether she was Ann, Mary or perhaps Mary Ann Smith.
Research and time will prove those stories true or false, or show that the stories were about Edward's father who we suspect might have been named Edward. Having just discovered an Edward John who died in St. Joseph County, Indiana in 1951, perhaps the father of our 1839 Edward was also John Edward Gillen.
