Hello. I've been having a bit of trouble tracing the Irish side of my family tree, so I thought I'd see if these names looked familiar to anyone.
My great great grandfather, John Herbert Shea, was born in Kerry on Feb. 29,1842. He died in Chicago on Dec. 11, 1908. His father, Jeremiah Shea, was born in Kerry on Dec. 24, 1809, and died (where?) on Oct. 1, 1892. Jeremiah's wife, Ellen Richardson, was born in Kerry on May 15, 1818, and died (where?) Dec. 25, 1888.
John Shea's wife, Josephine Maloney, was born in Kerry on Nov 1, 1849/51, and died in Chicago on Jan 1, 1890. Her father was Jeremiah Maloney. Her mother was Ellen Herbert, who was born in 1825 in Kerry, and died on Mar 25, 1890.
If anyone knows any info on any of these people, it would be much appreciated!
