The census record looks like Mary McGillick's mother's maiden name could be Summers.
Her mother - Mary Sullivan Her uncle - Philip Summers
Therefore, Philip Summers and Mary Sullivan were brother and sister?
Thomas Mcgillick Head M 45 Illinois Mary Mcgillick Wife F 39 Illinois John Mcgillick Son M 15 Illinois Geraldine Mcgillick Daughter F 13 Illinois Margaret Mcgillick Daughter F 10 Illinois Rose Ellen Mcgillick Daughter F 8 Illinois Lorene Mcgillick Daughter F 6 Illinois Irene Mcgillick Daughter F 3 Illinois Helen Marie Mcgillick Daughter F 0 Illinois
**Mary Sullivan Mother F 70 Ireland
**Philip Summers Uncle M 70 Ireland
--------------- Or Philip Summers was Thomas McGillick's uncle since Thomas was listed as the head of household?
--------------- Mary McGillick's obituary has her mother as Mary Barry Sullivan. Barry could be her middle name or her maiden name. That doesn't make sense if her maiden name was Summers. More likely, her maiden name was Barry and Philip Summers was Thomas McGillick's uncle?
It's a puzzle.....
--------------- John T. McGillick's [#121278711] obit has his parents as Thomas J. and Mary Sullivan McGillick. And his mother was alive when he died in 1956.
RE: Alice Claire Cullenbine Hi Betty, I stumbled across Find a Grave while trying to find some info on the meaning of the name Cullenbine. The family legend was that Cullenbine stood for "Cullen with the long legs", but I haven't seen anything to suggest this is true. I even asked an Irishman in Ireland and he said it doesn't mean that!
My mom (who went by Clare) was cremated and we scattered her ashes in the redwoods in northern California. When she got divorced the second time, she dropped Spears and chose her grandmother's (Hannah Walsh Furlong) maiden name as her own last name.
I have some more info I can share with you. Hannah Walsh Furlong had more children than just my grandmother, Mary Helen. I am currently out of state and don't have the info with me, but I'll send it to you next month when I get home and can access my files.
Is there a connection between your great grandmother and my branch of the Cullenbines? As I said I just found this site when I was trying to find info on the name, so I haven't done much research and haven't looked at the connections yet. It's interesting though! I'm so glad you entered all the info - thanks! Margo
RE: 70265803 Hi Betty! I have a note that he was buried at Ladd Cemetary in Illinois. There is no record on find a grave. Do you also have that info? If. So. We're could Create a page and request a picture of the graves site perhaps. Also, I have a pic of his headstone on my tree however it looks like it was on private property. Perhaps the grave was moved later to Ladd??
Maude mantle edit Hi sorry I am late in getting back to you. Thank you for the info on Maude mantle. What I did was take all the pertinent info like date parents and do a short bio. rather than copy paste the document because much would be repeated which is already there in the date and bio section. I used to copy and paste but am getting away from that as to make things shorter which conforms more to what find a grave wants as per faqs. But I have put the most pertinent info there and I tink if a person were interested they could find info on ancestry and family search. So I do appreciate your sending me this and wanted you to know that. Residents of the asylum were known by numbers and data and many of them had no known relatives. For me it is a challenge to present a bio which is more human. I want to somehow start to create bios that look a little less clinical. Perhaps that is impossible I don't know. But I am going to go through these entries and try to do that. Having been in health care and experienced the joy of knowing many of thee courageous people I hope I can at least come up with bios that reflect that. Any time you wish to create such a bio please feel free to do so. I know one contributor who has done that on some of her own entries so thanks to her work I wish to do the same even if it is a short bio. Best regards and thanks again.
Leonard Stahl You suggested that I add a birth date (1804) and a death date (1840) to Leonard Stahl's record in Somerset, PA. Before I do that, can you point me toward the documentation for those dates, please? Many thanks.
Holliday Cemetery Hi Betty, I am Lois Baker, the Holliday Cemetery is located on my farm in Murphysboro, Il. 17 years ago I begin to clean the cemetery and look for stones. I have completely restored the cemetery now and have fixed all the broken stones and made a grid so that if the stones would be destroyed some day the placement of the bodies will always be known. I have photographed all stones and put as much information that I could find with each stone. The contributor (Kim R) has posted information about several of the people in this cemetery with out my knowledge. She has since passed away and there is not a way to remove any information once someone is no longer with us. She has different information than I could acquire and is important to the site. Because I have restored the cemetery and done all the work on the stones I do not feel I should delete any of my work. So for now there will be several names that you will see twice. Thank you for your interest. Happy Hunting, Lois
