Thanks for the information posted about Martin J Shaughnessy. I am Martin's great grandson on my fathers side. Martins son, my grandfather was Thomas Wade Shaughnessy Sr., Thomas's son, my father was Thomas Wade Shaughnessy Jr., and I am Timothy Michael Shaughnessy. Can you tell me if and how you are related to MJS?
We are looking into Martin's birth location in Ireland. we beleive he cam over about 1860 however we have no details specific to his Irish life. His gravestone lists his birth as 1844.
