Biography contributed by Deidre Swan

George Patrick Joseph McGillis was the great grandson to my great great grandmother's sibling.  John & Margaret McGillis/McGillies & their six children came to NSW Australia in the 1830's when they were cleared from their land in the Scottish Highlands.

George is lovingly remembered by his many many McGillis descendants.
