re: SHEA & BARRY family from Youghal, County Cork

In Reply to: SHEA family from Youghal, County Cork by Barb Miller of 1696

Am still looking for this family if anyone can help.(see above message - Though John Shea and Ellen Barry are my 3 x great grandparents. John who came to NSW Australia from Co Cork in about 1848 was my 2 x great grandfather.)

Ellen Barry married John Shea in 1826 in Youghal, Co Cork, but I haven't been able to find which Shea family John was from, or which Barry family Ellen belonged to, or if either were originally from Cork, hence not even sure when they were born. Parents names are not given in their marriage record.

I would very much like to know what happened to the rest of the family and more about their families of origin. YDNA testing proves our Shea's originally came from Co Kerry, back in the 1700's.
Would anyone happen to have any of these names in their Shea or Barry family trees? I would love to find out more and any help will be much appreciated. Thank you.
