Hello my Grandmother was born in Wales as was my uncle. She immigrated to Canada with my uncle Bruce Clark Reilly to live on my Granfather's family farm in Shanly Ontario Canada. She passed away in 1985. My father and uncle know very little about her and her family. I do know she visited Wales and she may have had a son prior to meeting my Grandfather who was raised by her parents. As well she might have had a sister named Olive. If any one can assist I would appreciate it greatly.

Thanks

Did she marry aged 13 ?

We could do with knowing how old she was when she died

Thank you Everyone for the info. I am not sure of her birth date. She passed away January 1st, 1985. She was approximately 4 years older than my Granddad. Family tales have stated she had a son out of wedlock prior to meeting my Grandfather and he was raised by her parents. I don't know my half uncle's first name but it is thought it also started with a B. I also don't know my great grandparents names. She occasionally mentioned a sister named Olive who was younger. Again I do so appreciate the help. This a
Is all new to me. My Uncle Bruce passed away this summer at 66 and my Dad Blair had a serious heart attack. He turned 65 in August. Would really like to find the Welsh side of my family. Thank you again.

If she was 4 years older, when was your grandfather born and what was his name?

You didn't confirm if this is the marriage:

Reilly James B Clark Windsor 2c 1456

Her age and father will be listed if you buy the cert.
