JOhn Sheeran was my Great Grandfather on my Mother's side. He married Mary Agnew Ewell. Mary's family traces back to President McKinley, although I have not found that connection yet. They had at about 6 children, one of who was my grandfather (also John Sheeran). He married Mary Loughran, and they 5 daughters, one of which is my mother. My mother and two of her sisters are still alive, but there memory is all but gone none due to age and alzheimers. But I would like to know more about the John Sheeran of which you speak. I am working all this on ancestry.com.
