Gillis, James Andrew

6 Nov 1909

At Morar, Antigonish Co, on Nov 6th, 1909, after a short and painful illness borne with true Christian resignation, James Andrew Gillis in the 54th year of his age.  A good life and a devout reception of the last Sacraments prepared and encouraged him to meet his Maker.  The large concourse of people who attended the Requiem Mass and followed his remains to the grave testified to the love and esteem in which he was held by all.  He left to mourn their loss a disconsolate widow and twelve young children – six boys and six girls.
