Looking for Hillier from Gloucester ma.

My grandmother was Helen Gertrude Hillier, married to my grandfather Harris Loring Miller.

Helen Gertrude Hillier born dec. 9 1897 Chelsea Ma. married dec 29, 1919,
died june 15, 1947 Chelsea ma.

parents- Theron James Hillier, born jan. 28 1871 Gloucester ma.
1st married Mary J. Foster Sept. 25 1891,
2nd- marriage Nellie Gertrude Reed(mother of Helen) 1892 in Beverly Ma.
born sept 21, 1877, Beverly Ma(dau of John Reed and Julia) died dec 18. 1897 from childbirth.
3rd - marriage Elizabeth, 1900?

parents of Theron- father James Hillier jr. born 1828 Gloucester ma.
mother Mary Elizabeth Babson born june 1830, Gloucester ma.(dau. of James Babson and Mary Moores Medley) James and Mary married Dec 3 1848
Mary died nov. 19. 1878

census records

show James Hillier jr. widowed. living at 9 Sans Souci Square in Gloucester ma.
places his father James Hillier as being born in England his mother being born in Ma.
living with James Hillier jr. were
a son P. Frederick age 21
a son Castilio age 12
a daughter Henrietta age 11
a son Theron James age 9
(the Babson Geneolgy list a daughter to James Hillier jr. and Mary Elizabeth Babson, Mary Ida born 1861, died 1863)

1900 census

shows Theron James Hillier living in the house of Frank Sears at 14 Dexter st. Medford Ma.
also in the house were Gertrude Sears wife of Frank, Issac Sears his father

along with Theron it says occupation Engineer, out sick last 4 months
Elizabeth Hillier wife of less than a year
Carl or Carla Hillier age 4(child from 1st wife?)
Helen Gertrude Hillier age 2(my grandmother)

Wondering if anyone is descendant from these Hilliers
