I recently transcribed a 1909 letter from a Father Dan E. Reilly to my husband's grandmother in Chicago. (I presume his full name would be Daniel E. Reilly, but that is how he signed his name to the letter.)
At the time, Fr. Reilly was recuperating from illnesses and writing from Tucson, AZ, but I assume from the letter that he had previously served in either Chicago (St. Anne's?) or in New Lexington, OH (St. Rose?).
If anyone has a priest by that name and time period related to your ancestry, I would love to know more about his personal bio. I would appreciate hearing from you.
