I have very little information to start a family search with. My father's father, John Joseph Sheehy II, was born in 1919 in Watervliet, New York, or around that area. He was a 2nd LT. in WWI and was killed at or near Monte Casino in Italy, May 1944. His father, John Joseph Sheehy, owned a department store in Troy, New York and died some time around the 1930's. This is the closest to a family tree that I can manage, but I am trying to go backwards to find where these Sheehy's came from and when. If you can help fill in the earlier years, please help!
