My grandmother, Mary Cate Reilly immigrated to Quebec City sometime around 1900. So did
her sister, Eleanor (Nellie) and brother Patrick. I "think" it was because they
had an aunt there who was either a Gilleece or a Reilly. As I haven't been able to
trace any of the Gilleece family past my ggm, Mary and have the same problem with my ggf,
John Reilly, I'm rather stymied right now as to who the aunt might have been and why
SHE came to Quebec.
