: : I am continuing on my search for ancestors of the Sheehy Family. My gr grandfather William, came to New Zealand in the 1870'his parents were Patrick Sheehy & Mary Carroll. William was born 1851 or thereabouts. Does anyone know of this connection in the Listowell region? i would love to hear from you
: :: Maureen ... Don't think there is a connection but there are interesting overlaps. My great grandfather was Patrick Sheehy. He was born in 1847 (trying to recover birth certificate). Came to the United States and I believe he married here. Died in a coal mine near Shenendoah, Pennsylvania before beginning of 20th century.
: : Would be interesting if you find the birth certificate, as they are not common, more the Baptismal Certificate, then see the names of Patricks parents. Perhaps they are connected.
