Well, hey, cuz! I am happy to hear someone may be able to fill in the blanks and am anxious to get information. I am descended from Michael's son, James, who spelled his name Sheil. I live in Anderson, IN, close to Tipton where many of the Shiels are buried. I would be interested in copies of your documents; I already have a photo of the gravestone. I wonder if Michael and Mary ever married. So many questions. Are you located in the Midwest? I would be happy to mail documents to you.
