James Andrew GILLIES of Port Pirie South Australia.
James was born at Stockport South Australia on 7/3/1870. He was the only surviving son of Catherine (nee Kenihan) & John Gillies. His sisters were Isabella Ann 1868-1931, Anne Elizabeth 1876-1915 & Rose May 1878-1929.
In 1893 James married Elizabeth Ann Whitbread in Port Pirie. Their first child was Grace Catherine born 1894, Lena Maud in 1896 then Norman John in 1898. The following year Elizabeth died & was buried in Port Pirie.
Sadly nothing further is known about this family. James was my father's uncle & Grace, Lena & Norman - his first cousins.
My research on James Andrew Gillies has 'hit a brick wall'.
FOLLOW UP: I have since discovered that James Gillies went to join his sister in Western Australia after the death of his wife. He remarried around 1905 to May Taylor. They had 4 children with 2 daughters surviving - Margery (1911) & Doris (1916). James died in 1929 at Wooroloo W.A. I have no further information on his children from his first marriage or his daughters from his second.
