Only looked at Gillies angle because you mentioned American relatives and Andrew did cross the border into the USA - Perhaps we shouldn't persue the Gillies family for further info - not knowing what you might already have -

There seems to be a problem, I will have to re examine my information.

I have:-  Grace Marguerita Snape  Born 1893 West Ham, Essex, England
                                                 Married George Robert Redfearn
                                                 Died 1986 Sutton, Surrey, England

I will let you know the outcome

Perhaps we have 2 different Graces here??  Found an obituary for Bertrand Heathcote Snape in the Globe and Mail, May 11 1943, page 22. He died May 9 1943 at his residence 139 Danforth Ave.  Husband of Margaret Heniter and father of Mrs E L Zoegler (Grace) and of Roy W Snape. 

Hope this helps figure out where people fit!!
