I'm looking for relatives of William Patrick O'Shea (1839-1912). He was born in Cahir, Tipperary, Ireland in 1839 and came to the US about 1854.
He would have had brothers in Massachusetts or Connecticut according to sources, and probably stayed with them in 1854 and again in 1869.
His father, Patrick O'Shea, came to the United States "in advance" of the family. He died during the crossing and was buried at sea. The mother's maiden name was Catherine Roach and she stayed in Ireland. She died in 1882.
If any of this rings a bell, please contact me. The rest of William O'Shea's life is pretty well documented, but I know nothing of his possible siblings or much about the parents...
