SHEEHAN/MCGRATH family of Troy, New York
Posted by: Rhonda Nestell (ID *****6170) Date: June 15, 2012 at 05:15:05

Seeking info on MICHAEL F. SHEEHAN (1840-1904). Born in Ireland, immigrated abt. 1848 (unsure of port arrival). Michael Sheehan owned/operated a wholesale liquor store (M. SHEEHAN & CO.) in Troy & Cohoes New York for many years. Wife KATHERINE MCGRATH - they married about 1869 and list the following children in the 1880 NY census; Cornelius (1866 - Michael's first wife?); Frederick M. (1874); Mae (1876); William (1877); Thomas Henry (1880-1949); Florence (1881); K. Esther (1891). Troy's Irish Genealogy website shows Michael's death of 8 April 1904. Seek an obituary if possible showing parents names & possible siblings. Supposedly Katherine died in 1892 however on the 1900 NY census, Michael lists his status as married, # of years married is 31. Any help and/or lookups would be greatly appreciated as I have hit a dead end! Thanks! Rhonda in Michigan
