Searching for any info on my husband's Gillen ancestors. I have only the following:

Mark James Gillen, Sr
Born circa 1806, County Mayo, Ireland
Married Honora Philiphin (sp?)born circa 1810, County Mayo

Mark James Gillen, Jr
Born 1840, County Mayo, Ireland
Died Dec 8, 1925, Biloxi, Harrison Co., MS
Married Ellen J. Sheehan, Born 1851, New Orleans, LA
Marriage on July 13, 1870 in Biloxi, Harrison Co, MS

Stella Angelina Gillen (dau. of Mark Jr & Ellen)
Born Jan 1, 1892 - Biloxi, Harrison Co, MS
Died Sept 12, 1963 - Baptist Hospital, New Orleans, LA
Buried South Memorial Park Cemetery - Biloxi,MS
Married Uriah Sylvester Joachim, born Mar 13, 1888 in Biloxi
Married on Nov 14, 1912 - Biloxi, Harrison Co, MS

Stella Gillen and Uriah Joachim are my husband's grandparents. There are many living Gillens and Joachims still in the area, but they have little information on the Gillens past Stella.

Any information would be greatly appreciated!
