Tillie/Tilly is shortform for Mathilde/Mathilda.
is not only from Galicia.
TILLY
GENDER: Feminine
USAGE: English
Diminutive of MATILDA
VARIANTS: Mattie, Tilda, Tillie, Maudie
OTHER LANGUAGES: Til (Dutch), Tilda (Finnish), Tilda (Swedish)

but Waschkau is really not an "austrian" name. orgin more of Germany´s north, so also can have been from East-Prussia like Ellisisland shows with Königsberg, now Kaliningrad, Russia:

ZlaticaBeca you can be right - maybe also people with that name in former Galicia and surroundings, so then would have been Austria that time.
