Thomas Shea the brother of Michael Shea was married to Julia Hennigan daughter of John Patrick Hennigan & Eileen Breen my Great-grand-parents. Also Thomas and Julia were my mothers Godparents. Their also Shea recorded on my Grandmothers Anne McDougal Hennigan funeral attendance list. The Hennigans, Breens and Shea's apparently have a long connection going back to St Catherines Ont. Canada and their immigration. I don't know as yet if they were connected in Ireland. ( Dunmaway County Cork).  However their is a common bond throughout the Church Record of St Catherines of Alexandria RC Church of Marriages, Baptisms and funeral

I live in Buffalo NY, and am in charge of archives at Shea's.  I discovered this website - see that his date of death is incorrect, maybe a typo.  He died on May 16, 1934.  You can find the actual Buffalo News paper of his death - google "Michael Shea Obituary Scrapbook"
