Hi Pat,

Your Grandparents Frank and Juanita were part of my line too. I live in Houston, TX now but was raised in Atlanta. My grandmother is the daughter of Frank's youngest sister, Mattie Kathryn O'Shields Tate. I used to have the O'Shields family web site until I went back to work about five years ago. Too bad you didn't find me then. I had tons of data online at that time. My grandmother who is 87 now and in bad health is the only one left of our family that remembers these people.

My mother has the family bible. I just posted it on the Mashburn list on Rootsweb this morning. It has the whole family listed for Frank's generation. You might want to go there and print it out.

Your ggrandparents are:
Mother: Martha Catherine Fagan b. 01 Jan 1846 in GA. d. 01 Jan 1930 Fulton Co. GA. Bur. Greenwood Cem., Atlanta in the plot with one of her dau. from previous marriage to Thomas Hawkins, Ida (Hawkins) Oakes., m. Jan 22 1874 Fulton Co. to Frank's Father: Harvey O'Shields. Harvey b. Abt 1832 SC. d. 01 Feb 1908 Atlanta. Bur. Hollywood Cem., Atlanta
Martha's first marriage is in this bible as: Jan 15, 1865 to Thomas D. Hawkins. Her other daughter was Lizzie Hawkins who m. Warren E. Mashburn on 30 Dec 1886. Ida Hawkins m. J.D. Oakes on 2 May 1886.

Frank R. b. 06 Aug 1881 in Georgia. He d. 09 Jun 1943 in Fulton Co., GA but I don't know where he is buried.
m. Juanita (maiden name unknown). She was a waitress. I have no dates on her. I have found that they were in Detroit, MI at times and some years they were in Atlanta.

1. Harry F. m. Thelma
2. Chistopher Harvey
3. Marie (my grandmother said her husband shot and killer her when she was about 30)
4. Nellie m. Charles Whitmire

Frank's mother had glocoma so she lost an eye and had a glass eye. She was also in a wheelchair in her latter years.
Frank's siblings were:
1. Infant b. 07 Nov 1874 d. 07 Nov 1874
2. E. Paul b. 04 Jan 1875 GA d. Jacksonville FL. (my grandmother said they buried him at the foot of his sister's baby's grave in College Park Cemetery. There is no record of his burial). On 02 Sep 1897 m. Jennie b. abt 1881 GA (per census). 2nd marriage of Paul to Lillie.

3. Mary Jane b. 24 Dec 1878 Atlanta d. 26 Dec 1926 Atlanta m. on 12 Dec 1897 James Looney Sweat.
4. Your Frank.
5. Martha "Mattie" "Kate" Kathryn b. 21 Aug 1888 Atlanta. m. 24 Sec 1911 Samuel Alston Tate (my great grandparents). Kate d. 15 Jan 1964 Atlanta. Sam d. 05 Dec 1950 Atlanta. Both are buried in College Park Cem. near the Hartsfield Airport.

Other names associated with this family are: Mashburn, Bishop, Hawkins, Tate, Sweat, Futral, Fagan, Oakes.

I have a lot more of data on this line. I am just getting really tired of typing right now.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Patrick, I am very interested in the O'Shields History book that you said you have. Where did you obtain a copy, I would very much like to obtain a copy. As far as Nancy, I have a little information on her, but not much. I was working with Bill Bailie who was married to Frankie O'Shields but now they are no longer married, I don't believe I will have a chance to get the information. I did talk with Frankie and she said there is too many boxes to go through to try to find the information. Please contact me at: Thanks, Lonnie C. O'Shields

When did this happen with Bill Bailie? I had no idea they divorced. I sure hate to hear that. He seemed like a very nice fellow and he did so much work on the O'Shields line.

BTW, are you and Michelle doing okay?

Take care,
