You've already supplied some corrected information for me.
I would greatly appreciate seeing any information you might have on the family.
I'll send, via email, the information if have from various publications about the family as well as some photos scanned of some of the people.
I don't think the publications about Ellsworth or Shieldsville are still available but I do have a contact who may be able to provide further information.
I have never heard of any connection of this branch of the family to Alabama. So far as I know, the generation through those we are discussing were all born in either Ireland or the mid-west.
Maurice (Sr), and Anna, named one of their sons Maurice.I don't have a birthdate but show that he was born about 1868 and died in Ellsworth, MN, in about 1920. He was never married and the lease of his farm after his death and its eventual sale went to his siblings according to the information that I've been given.
