We are related. My father's (Michael Shea - probably named after your grandfather) mother was Clara Steele Shea (your father Fraser's sister). I too am interested in understanding who your great grandparents were and where they were from). My parents visited some of the relatives in Cape Breton over 10 years ago and were able to get some good history. I believe my father's brother (Patrick) also made a trip to Cape Breton to visit relatives.
I was told that Isabel (Bertha) MacNeil Steele was directly from Barra Islands (Scotland). However, I would like to know more about Michael and Isabel's past.
Please feel free to contact me as I will be working on the Family Tree over Christmas break.
I have the actual Michael Steele obituary from the Cape Breton Post (I believe he passed away 3/9/59 at age 92 - that is the date of the paper)
