Re: Mattie Jane Iland(Island)IL, MO,>AR
Can't help you concerning the Iland family in St Louis, but thought I'd reply as my Gt Gt Grandmother was Mary Iland of the East End of London, England. She gave birth to my Gt Grandmother, Ellen, in 1855 and I'm trying to trace her ancestry. It's a very rare surname, and at first I thought it was a misprint. Do you know whether it has any Irish connections?
Best regards, Nicholas
