I live in California, my father is Paul Sillars, and his father was Claude Ellsworth Sillars. He was born in 1899, in New England.
My brother is Daniel Hood Sillars and my sister is Amanda Graham Sillars. I don't know much about our geneology; however I believe my grandfather's brothers were Archibald and Pearly. My father's cousin is Malcom Sillars, and he lives in Colorado.
In addition, there are some vague family stories about the "red-headed" Sillars and the "tow-headed" Sillars. Something about two brothers from Scotland coming over together, with one marrying a Catholic girl and the other marrying a Protastant. I can't remember who were the supposed red heads or tow heads, but there was a huge rift between the family because of the different faiths. Of course, this is all 5th and 6th party stuff. If you think there is any connection at all, please feel free to e-mail me!
