I'm looking for any information on Catherine Sheean or her parents, John and Mary (specifically what part of Ireland they came from and what her maiden name was). I know there's been a post on this Catherine in the past but it was in '99 and didn't turn up any new info.
What I know already:
She was born in 1833 in the Boston area but moved to Jo Daviess Co., IL at a fairly young age where she married Phillip Ryan of Co. Kilkenny, IRE. They had quite a few children, all born in Jo Daviess County. I'm really looking for information on her parents, John and Mary, both born in Ireland somewhere.
