    Is Danica related to Phillip and Duncan McKellar whom are both deceased now.
    Millie was Phils wife and Duncan was a brother to Phil. Phil worked for Standard oil in El Segundo. I am sure there is a connection, I just can't connect it.
    I would appreciate information as we are working on family history.
    Thank You
    MMcKellar Allen
