  • Notes 
    • BIRTH:
      Full date of birth given as 17 October 1855 in the baptismal record of that date (stating in Latin: "natum hodie" or born today) in the Register of Baptisms of the Cathedral of SS. Peter and Paul, Philadelphia, available on findmypast.com. Parents named (in Latin) as William McGillian and Anna Munn.
      Consistent with age (14 years) in 1870 U.S. Census for Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, page 108B, line 25. State of birth given as Pennsylvania. Enumerated with William McGillian and his wife Catherine, but too old to be their biological child.
      Full date of birth would be 16 October 1855, according to age (19 years, 8 months, 13 days as of 29 June 1875) given in Philadelphia Death Certificate online as part of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia Death Indexes, 1803-1915 online at www.familysearch.org. Place of birth not given. Name given as John Joseph McGillian. Parents named as John and Ann McGillian, but his place of death was 1310 Drury Street, the home of William and Catherine McGillin. John was likely the middle name of William McGillen (as he had a son who went as William John McGillin, Jr.), so perhaps this is a mistake by the undertaker who filled out this part of the form. The more contemporaneous baptism record is followed for the birth date.

      CHRISTENING: Full date of baptism given as 17 October 1855 in the entry for John McGillian in the Register of Baptisms of the Cathedral of SS. Peter and Paul, Philadelphia, available on findmypast.com. Witnesses--Joanna Munn and Catherine Conway.

      DEATH:
      Full date of death given as 29 June 1875 in Death Certificate online as part of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia Death Indexes, 1803-1915 online at www.familysearch.org. Cause of death was tuberculosis. Died at 1310 Drury Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Attending physician was William H. Hooper, 112 South 13th Street, Philadelphia.

      BURIAL:
      Full date of burial given as 3 July 1875 in "Registration of Deaths in the City of Philadelphia," page 384, online as part of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia Death Indexes, 1803-1915 online at www.familysearch.org. Buried in Cathedral Cemetery, Philadelphia (Entry on certificate says "C.C.").
      Full date of burial given as 13 July 1875 in burial records of Old Cathedral Cemetery, Philadelphia, viewed on 13 August 2012 by Robert M. Simon. Buried in Section N, Range 7, Lot 11, owned by William McGillen and containing the burials, among others, of other children and his first spouse.
