This is information I have regarding my, "Shay Family History." My Great GrandFather William O'Shea was born in Ireland 1867, when he came to America he changed his name to "Shay." He married a woman who had been married before, (Widowed) Martha Miller Harris she was born in 1857. Martha had 3 children from her first marriage their name were: 1. Ruth Harris 2. Benjamin Harris 3. Joseph Harris William and Martha had 4 Sons together their names: 1. Edward Shay 2. William Shay Jr. 3. James Shay 4. John Henry Shay
I have information on who they married and the children's names also names of family up to date with John Henry Shay, beginings in Morgantown/Star City Area. (Monongalia County) Any connections - I always wonder about the Harris Children? Love to know new info!
