Surnames: McShane, Callaghan, Bodin
James McShane (my maternal gggrandfather) b.? and died in 1880 in Crossmaglen, Co. Armagh, N. Ireland. He married Mary/Margaret Bodin on 14 Jul 1799 in Upper Creggan Parish, Crossmaglen. They had the following children: Catherine; Mary; Margaret; Felix (d. 1846 in Cincinnati, OH); James (d. 1869); Frans (1802-1885); Patrick (1810-1895 -- my maternal ggrandfather); and Eleoner (b. 1821).

Patrick McShane (my ggrandfather) married Anne Callaghan on 27 Dec 1855 in Crossmaglen. They had the following children: Mary (b. 1857); James (1859-1930); Margaret (1861-1923); Catherine (1864-1941 -- my grandmother); Ann (1867-1885); Alice (1869-1935); Ellen (1871-1941); Rose (b. 1874); and Bridget (1877-1962).

Catherine McShane (my grandmother) married William Joseph Maher (1863-1945) on 2 Sep 1891 in Omaha, Nebraska, USA. They had the following children: Mary (1892-1952); Ann (1894-1968); Thomas (1896-1968); Michael Joseph (1898-1973 -- my father); Margaret (1901-89); Catherine (1903-64); and
Patrick (1908-1986).

As you can see, there are a number of gaps in the info I have. I have nothing on either the Bodin side or the Callaghan side. I do have the names of a number of the spouses of the above (for example, Callaghan, McArdle, McGinn, Creighton, Hanratty in the 1st group; Grimley, Callaghan, McCreesh, McArdle, Foley, Cunningham, Denegan in the 2nd group; and too many to name here in the 3rd group).

If any of this info registers, please share with me. I have the capability of forwarding gedcom files via email if anyone would prefer.

Thanks, Mike
