I have been researching the Shea family for some time but have been unable to find out what happened to Michael Shea (born 1854, Chelsea) after he left his family around 1900. I believe that one of his sons, John (born 1875, Chelsea), kept in touch with him after this and wondered whether any of John's children may have known something about where he went. John had quite a few children - amongst those surviving beyond childhood being Winifred Mary, Nellie, Ernest Walter, Dorothy Hilda and George John Victor. All were born in London. Does any of this seem familiar to anyone ?
