The Andrus family of Orono, Ontario.
SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION....by Doug Gilfillan
I found out this spring of 2010 that my neighbor here in California is a direct decendent of Mabel Gertrude Andrus of Orono and I am a direct decendant of James Gilfillan BA of Orono and Bowmanville. He was a graduate of Queens Universtiy, Kingston, Ontario.
Mabel Andrus was born in 1878 and was the daughter of Freeman Andrus. Freeman Andrus was the older brother of Sarah Wealtha Andrus 1852-1936 my great step grandmother.
James Gilfillan and Wealtha Andrus had one child; a son, George Elliott Gilfillan born in 1881. AKA Uncle George. James Gilfillan was married twice. The first wife was Almira Powers who is my great grandmother. Wealtha Andrus was the second wife and my grandfather was from the first marriage to Almira Powers. So I am half assed related to the Andrus family so to speak!
We are still working on all the roots as we are here in Southern California a couple of doors down from each other!
Andrus is a Scottish family as Andrus comes from Andrew the patron Saint of Scotland. The Gilfillans are also Scottish being one of the 7 septs of the MacNab Clan.
We think the Gilfillans originated in Barnet Center, Vermont and the Andrus family came from Beverly, Mass via Syracuse, NY.
