Thank you every one.
Our Rose Dorothy Gillick never married (to the best of our knowledge) and was a nurse with the Australian Army during WW1 (one of the Anzac Girls) and after moving to USA became a private nurse to a very wealthy New York couple. Travelled the world with them and lived in their apartment on Park Ave.
With an Irish ancestry she may well have had some contact with a "Cavan Society" which is another clue for us in our search for the Irish connection.
Thank you again.

If the Mrs. Rose Gillick mentioned frequently in N.Y. papers is her then it's possible her mother died in Cavan in 1943.

The father died in Adelaide in 1928
http://www.campbelltown.sa.gov.au/page.aspx?u=4613&c=25005

It says the 6 children (including Rose) were from his fist marriage. So his widow in 1928 had no children. Not sure if this means he was separated from the mother of his six children or was remarried as he was a widower?

Some of this may have already been posted elsewhere.

1937 Rose Dorothy Gillick, single, born 24 Sept.1886 South Australia arrived in U.S. from Japan via Canada. Address was 2220 Park Ave., N.Y.C. (there in 1940 U.S. Census).
Naturalization record (petition 1936) shows her as a 'graduate nurse' so she might have been working at Stamford Hospital (probably about 15 walk from Clinton Ave.).

Therefore, she can't be the Mrs. Rose Gillick from newspaper articles or the Rose Gillick whose mother died in Cavan in 1944.

I can't see a Rose Gillick death in Connecicut.

With an Irish ancestry she may well have had some contact with a "Cavan Society" which is another clue for us in our search for the Irish connection.
I've already said several times that this is a Mrs. Rose Gillick whose mother was in Ireland.

There is a New York Death listed for a Rose Gillick - born about 1887 who passed away 6 March 1959 -  aged 72 years - Bronx, New York - Certificate Number:   2443

Sandra

It would appear that Rose Gillick had passed away before 1962 ish - no SSDI entry for her.

Unfortunately, it may mean purchasing the death certificate for the Rose Gillick (quoted above) to see if she is the correct one or eliminate her from the search - she appears to be of the correct age.  ???

New York City does limit who can obtain death certificates.  There is more information here about who can get them - https://www1.nyc.gov/site/doh/services/death-certificates.page
