My Irish lines have given me troubles ever since I began researching. I recently located an obituary which may give me a few more leads from which to work.
A search of online newspapers at the Quincy, Illinois, library website located this reference which mentions a first cousin (Janie Neill) of my great-grandfather as a surviving niece. The Bryces are not related to me directly--however, it might be worth my time to research a little into this woman as her family and my Neill family apparently were neighbors in Ireland before their immigration.
One problem is that the sisters in Pennsylvania are un-named. I have few ideas for working around that problem.
