I have been researching the Gillis family of Woodbrdige Township. The first Gillis family appears in the 1860 U.S. Census. Robert Gillis and Ann (Williamson) Gillis(1827-1887) were married either in Ireland or Woodbridge and had the following children: Elizabeth(1848-1883), Thomas, Anna, Ellen(1854-1920), Mary and Robert A(1860-1909). I recently found out that this family was of the Episcopalian faith and were memebers of the Trinity Episcopal Church in Woodbridge. Ann Gillis' death certificate said she was buried in the Episcopal cemetery, but I have been unable to locate it in the trinity Episcopal cemetary. In the 1880 U.S. Census, their son Thomas appears in Woodbridge with a wife, Annie. In 1880, they had the following children: Robert F., 2 years, and Edwin, 9 months. Their daughter, Ellen, married Anthony Deter and is buried in the cemetery at Trinity. Their youngest child, Robert Alexander, was married to Elizabeth Donnolly and is also buried at the Trinity Church. Their daughter, Elizabeth, eventually married Thomas Egan and possible converted to Roman Catholicism, as her death certificate says she is burried in a Catholic Cemetary in Woodbridge. They lived and raised their children in a part of the Fords Section of Woodbridge referred to as Sandhills. If you have any connections or information to add, please let me know.

Thanks.
Mark
