My great grandfather was James R. Sheahan, born in Canada (Ontario maybe) his father and mother were born in Ireland. His father's name in Ireland was O'Shea. Not sure when the name got changed. My grandfather was Thomas Joesph Sheahan, born in Chelsea, Ontario, Canada, 1877. They immigrated to Wisconsin shortly afterward.

Can't seem to find any information to connect James to his parents since I'm not sure if I'm looking for Sheahan or O'Shea. My great grandmothers name was Helen Burke, also born in Canada to Irish born parents (wife of James). My fathers name is William Thomas Sheahan (now deceased).
