Thomas Sheehan Ireland>>Philadelphia

Hi Everyone,

I am looking for info on my g.g.grandfather's family.

His name was Thomas Patrick Sheehan b. 1866 Ireland.

He emmigrated to Philadelphia in 1887 and married Julia Agnus Devenney (var. incl. Divenney, Diviny, Devanny, etc.).

They had 4 children that I know of: Hannah, Nora, Catherine, and Michael Thomas. All were born in Philadelphhia.

I can't seem to find any info on him or his children anywhere except the 1910 Census.

I was told many years ago that his mother was Nancy Connors (but can't find if that was true or not) and I don't know his father's name.

His surname has also been spelled Sheahan

Any clues would be great! Thanks
