According to the following reference, Gerneral Philip Sheridan had a brother Patrick who died without marrying, a borother Micahel who joined the US army, a brother John who moved to Ohio and a sister Rosa who died on the ship to the US.

General Philip Sheridan's grandfather was Patrick Sheridan, who had the following children: John (General Phil's dad), Philip, Michael, Patrick and Catherine.

From: Irish Pedigrees or the Origin and Stem of the Irish Nation by John ‘O’ Hart, Limited American Edition, Volume II, John Murphy & Son, New York, New York 1915, pp. 387-389. The following is the relevant excerpt::
Patrick Sheridan of Killinkere Parish diocese of Kilimore, Co. Cavan had four sons: Philip, Michael, Patrick and John, who was General Philip Sheridan’s father, and one daughter Catherine.
Catherine Sheridan McCabe, who married James McCabe, had four sons, John who moved to America and in 1887 in Philadelphia; Luke; Thomas; and Andrew of Milwaukee Wisconsin. [Luke and Thomas may have also moved to Mil. Wis.]
John Sheridan son of Patrick, born in Killinkere Parish, Co. Cavan; removed to America and settled at Somerset Perry County, Ohio, where he died, his wife_ whom he married in the County Cavan, was in 1887 living in Somerset, aged 87 years. They had five children which the book describes as follows: “I. Patrick, who was born in Killinkere parish, co. Cavan, and went with his father to America, where he died young and unmar; II. Phillip of whom presently; III. Michael, born in Ohio, and now (1888) a Colonel in the United States Army; IV. John L. Sheridan, born in Ohio, and now living; V.
