I am looking for information on the family of Bernard and Augusta McQuillen of PA. In 1900, 70 yr. old Bernard, 46 yr. old Augusta and three childern, Katherine (15), Peter L.(13) and Marcella (11) were living on Pennsylvania Ave in Philadelphia. The family ran a boarding house. In the 1910 census, 56 year old Augusta is widowed and running the same boarding house alone. The McQuillens had 6 children, 5 of whom were still living in 1910. Bernard was of Irish ancestry. Augusta was of German ancestry. Bernard was either a tenant farmer or the son of a tenant farmer in his youth. He worked for the railroad and later worked in the Pennsylvania steel mills. Son, Peter L. McQuillen, left home in 1913 at age 16 and joined the US Military. He found his way to California in the 1920's and was stationed at the Presidio of Monterey (Fort Ord). He married and had a family in California. He died in Monterey County CA in 1969. I am looking for information on any siblings of Peter or descendants of those siblings, especially any family of Marcella McQuillen, Peter's favorite sister. Thank you.
