And even cooler....I'm the cousin of James Garrett Lillis from Wichita Falls. My father is his uncle Joseph Edward Lillis Jr. I just happened to be surfing randomly and came accross this as well.
I didn't know that our Grandfather Joseph Lillis Sr. had any brothers or sisters. This is neat. I 've been to his father's gravesite (John Patrick Lillis) were he was burried in Sherman.
Is the Patrick Lillis you refer to in your post one in the same? I also remember the name Emma so maybe so.
You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need more answers or you if you have interesting info to send me. Plus my father who was the oldest of the 3 kids probably remembers most of what you're looking for.
Thanks, Lance Lillis Wife: Teresa Son's Sean Patrick and Thomas Caswell
