I am looking for information on Mary Ellen Doyle born about 1843 in Dublin,Ireland.
I know her mother was Ellen Murphy but do not know who her father was,nor do i even know if they were married or not.
Mary Ellen Doyle came to America but don"t know the date there, but she went to Illinois where she married Timothy Shine on 20,August 1870,in Bloomington,McLean County,Illinois. They had several children before they passed on. Timothy Shine died1July 1928 Lexington,McLean County,Illinois and he came over from County Cork,Ireland. Mary Ellen Doyle died July 1928 McLean County,Illinois.
Their children are Daniel Shine born July 4,1871 Chenoa,McLean County,Illinois,and he died September 11,1945 in Hawthorne,Illinois. He married Emma F. Powell born May 7,1872,in Wicklaffe,Kentucky,and they married on August 30,1894 in Chenoa,McLean County,Illinois. She was the daughter of William Powell and Harriet Luretta Blanks of Wicklaffe,Kentucky. She died January 10,1940.
Timothy Shine Jr. born June 9,1873 Lexington,McLean Countyl,Illinois.He married Maggie Leonard October2,1895 in Colfax,McLeanCounty,Illinois.She was the daughter of Patrick leonard and Bridget Carberry of McLean,County,Illinois.
Ellen Shine was bornFebruary 1,1874 Lexington,McLean County Illinois,died October 13,1970 in Cooksville,McLean County,Illinois she married Thomas Leonard who was bornDecember 27,1872 Towanda,McLean County,Illinois and they married on March 2,1897 in Chenoa,McLean County,Illinois.Thomas Leonard died January 24,1957 in St.Joseph HospitalBloomington,McLean county,Illinois. I believe that he and Ellen lived all their married lives in Cooksville or close by there. Margaret Geraldine Shine was born March 6,1875 in Lexington,McLean County,Illinois, and she died July 5,1913 I don't think she ever married.
Mary Elizabeth Shine born July17,1877 in Lexington,McLean County,Illinois is my grandmother who died of cancer in 1955.She was married to James Patrick Leonard my grandfather bornJune9,1876 and they marriedJanuary 15,1896 in Colfax,McLean county,Illinois, and both were living in Elgin,Kane County,Illinois when they died he diedin 1946.
Hannah Shine was born October 16,1879 she married David O'Keefe date unknown. Bridget Shine was born about 1880 I would guess also in McLean County, but I am not sure.
Can anyone help me with information on any or part of this family for I need all the information that I can get on them for my family history. Thank you
