Re: East Bay, Nova Scotia, # 3
Angus Gillis and Mary MacNeil lived in Brighton and Allston, Mass. I am a great grand daughter. Angus was a milkman for Hood milk for many years. Their children were my grandma Margaret, John, Mary, Jimmy, Christy, Josephine, and Evelyn. Jimmy died in WWI. I forget the name of the young brother who died from polio. My grandmother also had polio. She married Albert Viens and they had 4 children. My mom Mary Anne and her siblings Richard, Jeanette and Theresa.
