My father's grandfather was from Ireland his name was Peter James Reilly and married Marie Mallon from Brooklyn, NY. However, Mallon was her first husbands name, I don't know her maiden name. Her 1st husband was buried alive in Brooklyn while digging a ditch and left her with 3 children at the time. After Peter and Marie married , they had Helen, my fathers mother. Peter died in October 1971 and was born May 1893. Marie was born in 1882 and died in 1952. My mother's father was born in May 1898 and died Dec. 1965. Her mother's name was Luciel McCrae.
