Does anybody have any info on a William Sheehan/Shehen, b. 1774 in (apparently) Virginia, married Hannah Light in 1800, and died in 1814 in Frederick Co., VA? The children changed the name to Shane and that's what it's been ever since.
I can't find any reference as to who his parents were. I think he could possibly be related to a John Sheehan, b. 1749 in County Cork, Ireland, but that's just a guess.
