      I'm looking for a male Shea who went from Kerry to Australia around 1850, made himself quite a bit of money and died in the early 1900s in Australia.
      Family lore said he had one daughter. his brother Dennis Shea (my ggrand father) came to the US in 1850 or so, married Bridget Hampston in Stafford
      CT in 1859, became a fairly proporous mason in Hartford CT. When he died my ggrand's family was notified but any papers were lost. Dennis was also
      somehow related to Sullivans who lived in eastern CT. Thanks for any ideas on where to look Roz Shea O'Connorl

      There were also Sheas near Tralee - a large family who lived at Clashapuc (townland) in Clogherbrien parish, baptized and married at St John's - who
      moved to Waterbury CT. Another Shea ancestor came from Kerry to Stafford Springs Ct in 1855(Dennis) and later moved to Hartford CT. His son John
      (born 1863 in CT) married mattied an Ellen Sullivan (born 1872 in England) Ellen's sister (born 1880 in Ebgland) lived with them/ John's daughter Agnes
      married a Sean Sullivan from Willimantic CT

      Fire
      At two o'clock Sunday morning three small buildings at the extreme northern end of North Front street were destroyed by fire. The flames originated in a small unoccupied wooden building and spread to an adjoining tenement house occupied by Dennis Shea, Hannah Shea, and Daniel Doyle also to a smaller tenement owned and occupied by Catherine O'Brien. The latter had no insurance, but upon the Shea property there was an insurance of $1,100. The furniture, etc. of the tenement was rescued only in part and Shea lost a calf and a lot of poultry which were in the out-buildings.
