Hi cousins I am looking for Irish records for the following: Richard McShane - born 1803 - Ballycastle, Mayo and his brother Felix McShane - born 1810 - Ballycastle. Both were stonemasons, who emigrated to Brookline, MA, USA (suburb of Boston). They arrived in the US in Aug 1849.
Parents have been listed as Michael McShane and Elizabeth or Margaret Conroy.
Richard McShane married Catherine Finnegan (widow of unknown Sullivan) in Muckno, Monaghan, IR abt 1847.
Son Felix was born 9 Aug 1848 in Drognamoyne, Monaghan shortly before they sailed from Newry to the US. They emigrated with Catherine Finnegan's mother, 2 sisters, and 2 brothers.
