Does anyone have any information concerning Anastasia Reilly?I know she is somehow related to my family and have some information but have not put all the pieces together yet. ( My grandparents saved some newspaper articles and made some diary entries concerning her and her mother "Hattie".)Need information on her parents, grandparents....if she had siblings, etc.Hoping I can unlock some of my family's genealogy mysteries with this information. Thanking all "Reilly" descendants in advance for your help! Anyone with information please contact me.
