I am researching Gillis and one branch of the family was based in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia for some time.One of the members of this branch moved to Halifax early in the 20th century.In tracking him down I came across this information from the Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Halifax:
William Gillis is buried in the George Perrier plot, Section 1, plot N, graves 1-3-5-7.Also in the plot are: Mildred Gillis age 1.4 yrs, buried Dec 30, 1914, Annie Perrier age ?, buried June 19, 1903, Annie Perrier w/o George age 54 buried July 17, 1918, George Perrier age 89 born in Yarmouth, buried May 31, 1947, Jane Perrier age 67, w/o George, buried June 19, 1903, Theresa Perrier age ?, buried June 19, 1903.
This likley ties into the same family.Perrier originating in Yarmouth with its strong Acadian influences makes sense.Do you have any more on this line that might helpf me find a marriage record for William Gillis and ? Perrier?
