I'm looking for a Roger Lillis who emigrated to the US from County Clare "during the famine," according to family legend. Roger had a son named John Walter Lillis, who married Mary Ladd REARICK. They can be found in KANSAS in 1893. This is not a common name, and even less common in Kansas, so perhaps we have a connection.
John Walter Lillis and Mary Rearick had these children, all born in or near Dodge City, KS:
Ruth Marie b. 1893, married ___ BAUGHER John Ralph b. 1894, d. abt 1935 Abigail Lenora b. 1896, , married L.J. KIRKHAM, d. 1981 James Walter b. 1898, d. 1917 John David b. 1900
