Sorry to jump in. I have a grt. grt. grandpa Maurice (Morris) Lillis, b 1820 IRE d 9-23-1876 Chicago, IL. His wife was Margaret McGuire b 1820-1828 d 6-26-1908. Children included at least the following in order (starting about 1852): Martin, James (Jimmie) (went to Kansas City), Mary m. Edward Walsh, Ella/Ellen/Nellie m. Patrick Joseph Vaughan (my grt. grandparents--they moved to Lafayette, IN), John J., Thomas, Elizabeth. They were Catholic--all buried at Calvary Cem., Chicago. Lived in/near current Chinatown, Chicago on Grove St.. When Maurice died the paper copied the information to Cincinnati, OH and Jersey City--so there must have been Lillis relatives there. Can you help? Have you run across this family? Similar names but those were probably popular names at that time? Any help appreciated.
