Re: McShea in Greece/Rochester, NY
Michael McShea is my paternal great-great grandfather.I have a ton of info on his descendents but have not been able to track backwards.I have his bible on loan from an aunt and in in old writing is says "Michael landed in New York June 2, 1841".My aunt tells me he and his brother John came to the U.S. together and each bought a farm near Rochester, NY.When Michael left for IA in 1857, other members of the family bought his land and some of John's descendants still live there.Much of the farm was taken over for commercial use but Marguerite McShea, granddaughter of John, lives there in the old home.Michael and Mary met through close friend and Fox cousin by the name of Hugh O'Connor. The family bible says Michael married Mary Fox September, 29, 1853.
My brother is going to Ireland next Spring and I'd love for him to be able to track down a few records during his travels.
I'd be happy to export what I have for your use.
