RE: Mary McGillick # 98451267 edit
Hello Betty,

I think I found the obituary for Mary Sullivan [Mary McGillick's mother]. #67778931

Her maiden name is not in the obit. However, the Illinois, Deaths and Stillbirths Index, 1916-1947 has her maiden name as Barry.

The pieces seem to point to her maiden name as Barry.

Still doesn't explain the Summers name.
I found an obit for a Philip Summers, but I am not sure if this is the same Philip Summers on the census. #157514030

Hello Betty,

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.

What do you think?

Mary McGillick # 98451267 edit
Hello Betty,

I have a question about the edit your sent for Mary McGillick.

Your edit has her maiden name as Summers.

Her obituary has her parents as Timothy and Mary Barry Sullivan. Her husband, Thomas McGillick's obituary also indicates her maiden name was Sullivan.

Both obits have been transcribed to the memorials.

What source do you have for the Summers maiden name?

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

Hi, Are you related to this family or just did the memorials? If family, I do have some questions for you.

I look forward to hearing from you.

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
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.

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.
