I'm not sure of the family connection but my paternal grandfather, Michael McSherry's dad was Patrick McSherry. My grandfather, Michael, came to the US circa 1906 at age 20. He had a brothers - Patrick, John, Tom, and James - there were 7 children - two sisters became nuns - Bridget and Maria.Patrick McSharry reportedly married Mary Hamilton McSharry. McSherry has become family name in US. My grandfather Mike and his brother Patrick resided in the NYC area until their death in the 1930s. Let me know if there is any connection.
