Gilley - Irene R. (Gilley) Dunbar (1911-1940)

Irene R. Gilley (1911-1940) was a great-great-great-granddaughter of William Gilley (1746-1839).

According to historian Ralph Warren Stanley, Irene’s funeral at the Methodist Church on Wesley Avenue in Southwest Harbor was well attended. The church, built in 1888, apparently needed repair. The floor dropped 6” during service. That day may have been the last day the church was used. – 05/28/2014
