I apologize for not responding sooner, but I have been away from this research project for some time and I changed my email address. I also have Sheas in my tree. I have some limited knowledge of a Hanrahan law firm in Jersey City, which I assume includes your judge. I don't know if there is a connection. Have you been able to trace your ancestors to a Catholic parish in Jersey City or to a place of origin in Ireland? This will help me to see a connection. The information I have is too extensive to post here, so email me. Also, if you have been in touch with Joan from Long Island, she and I work together on these projects, so she may have already given you much of what I have.
