Ann Willis (1841-1929)


I’ve written about Ann before.

Ann was born in County Galway, Ireland and baptised at Portumna, Galway in 1841, daughter of Thomas Willis and Margaret Grealy. Until the Catholic registers became available at the National Library of Ireland, I didn’t know Margaret’s maiden name. The images are browse only at the NLI, but the popular genealogy sites have indexes.

The following photo has been handed down to descendants. On the back is written Sheilds Hindmarsh. Hindmarsh is in Adelaide, where Ann lived, and Sheilds was Ann’s married name. It isn’t certain, but we think this is the only known photo of Ann Willis.
