Starting the Canadian/Newfoundland part of research for my husband's great grandmother Johanna "Hanna" Hillier, b. ~1884-1886. Her parents were named George & Mary Hillier (father was supposedly French, mother Canadian) and I think she may have had a brother named William Thomas Hillier, b. 1885 in Fortune Bay. Hanna Hillier immigrated to US about 1907 and married a Samuel Cook, who was also from Canada, and I think they knew each other from when they lived in Canada, but that's not certain. I have seen the name Hillard in place of Hillier, not sure if it was a misspelling or if Hillier was the misspelling.......when she married a second time, her name was listed as "Hannah Hillard Cook", but family members I've spoken to say they think its Hillier.
Any help would be appreciated!
