Looking for McGillen descendants from Chicago. EDWARD and ANN McGillen, siblings, immgrated to Chicago in the late 1840's from County Fermanagh, Ireland.I think that they are related to Peter McGillen who immigrated to Canada.Hoping an American McGillen can help me make the connection.
Edward's son, John, a Chicago politician, had one daughter, Rosalie, who married James Trotter Bristol.They had two children, Patricia and James T., Jr.
There is one other McGillen line in Illinois that I have been tracing - PATRICK McGillen and his wife Hannah or Anna Connell. Patrick immigrated from "Northern Ireland" - possibly Fermanagh. Children: Mary (Mamie), John P., Frank, James, Joseph, Agnes.
