Grace Quinlan was born Clara Grace Inglis in 1870, the daughter of Charles and Cassandra Inglis. She was born and raised in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia and her family were active members of St. James Anglican Church. In 1886 Grace was sent to Girton House, a boarding school located in Halifax, N.S, however the school closed the following year and Grace returned to Mahone Bay where she became a teacher. She married circa 1894 John Quinlan, the son of Robert and Almira (Hemeon) Quinlan of Shelburne. John was also a teacher and the couple resided in the Inglis family home. In 1895 the couple had a daughter Clara Grace. Several years later John left Mahone Bay for suspicious reasons and was found dead in August 1920 at Winnipeg, Manitoba. Following John's death, Grace went to work in her family's store, assisting her brother Percy. Her daughter Clara became a teacher and never married. Grace died at Mahone Bay in 1960.
