Fr. Gillespie was President of St Joseph College in Philadelphia twice around the turn of the century (1900). His name appears in a newspaper article that my GGM Sarah McHugh was visiting her cousin. Looking for more info on this family.
I know, from the Jesuit records, that he was born in Inver and left Ireland due to Fenian activity.
Would love to make connections with someone else who is researching him.
He is the son of Bernard and Catherine Campbell.
