Hi Charles,

I've been doing a One name study of Devlin's and your last name came up on my line. Your family might be in a direct line to the old Kings of Ireland

Hi Charles - I'm trying to verify my family history and am having trouble with a Thomas Shaughnessy. I find reference to Thomas F. and Thomas J and can't figure out who is who. My grandfather was Thomas J. Hagspiel and his mother (my great-grandmother) was Celia Shaughnessy from the Shaughnessy's of Ashland, MA. I think her parents were Luke and Mary Ann (Sullivan), but I'm finding various conflicts with the information. Do you have any insight into that Shaughnessy family? Thanks!
