John Sheehan & Nora/Hanorah (Scollard) Sheehan
Posted by: Donna Oranellas (ID *****1027) Date: December 02, 2007 at 10:53:16

Hi All, I finally got the name of my gggrandmother's parents.
Nora/Hanorah Scollard married John Sheehan in Ireland, they came to Massachusetts about 1880. Pretty much living in Weymouth Ma, until their deaths.

Nora was the daughter of Nicholas Scollard and Catherine McCarthy.

With further research I have found another Scollard family that lived in Braintree--next town over from Weymouth.

His name was Cornelius Scollard b. about 1826, was living in Braintree in 1860.
His family was wife Bridget. children Mary b.1851,
Nicholas b.1852, Garrett b. 1854, Elizabeth b.1858 & John b.1859/1860.
In 1880 census..also listed are Catherine N. b 1863 & Annie G. b1867.

Considering Cornelius named his first son Nicholas & Braintree is I believe the next town from Weymouth, I believe some connection to my Nora Scollard Sheehan, possibly an Uncle.

Also in one of the census reports I found the name spelled Schollard.

Now what I have found on John Sheehan 1844-1921, is his parents were: Maurice Sheehan & Catherine Keefe.

Also, I have found buried in the next plot in St. Francis Xavier Cemetary, Weymouth Ma. A--- Thomas & Winnifred(Sheehan) Greaney 1843-1912. The death information on Winnifred Greaney is her father was XXXX, Sheehan & mother Mary Keefe.. Will be interested in finding out what the true connection is it by Sheehan or Keefe? My mother believes this family is the parents of the cousin she remembers as Nellie Grainey.

Thanks for any help sent my way.
