I am replying to your message of July 21, 2001.
I may know something about your Laughlin McGillis.
My sister is married to a Roger Bruce. His grand-mother was Mary Ann McGillis. Her father was Laughlin McGillis.
I research a McGillis linage but not that branch. I live
in Michigan and these people all lived here too.
Let me know if I can help. Jan Marion
P.S. My grandmother was a McGillis.
