Re: sister of Donald Burton Gillies
Hi, I stumbled across your exchange of a couple of years ago.So interesting.Donald Burton Gillies was my great grandfather.My grandfather, who was married to his daughter Lynnie Jessie Gillies, writes in a brief family history: "Donald Gillies was the youngest of 13 children, most of whom were born in Scotland to his native Scottish parents."I don't know that I've ever heard any details about the siblings until reading your posts!I live in Maine but drove through Bruce Mines, Ontario a few years ago, which is where I believe Donald B. Gillies was born. There is an historical society in that town that I didn't get a chance to visit.I have cousins who may have more information than I do--I'm not much of a genealogist but would love to know more about the extended family. Let me know if you have questions that I might have answers to, or if you want the full write-up on Lynnie Jessie Gillies.
