I do -not- see any connection at this time. I am not acquainted with anyone named Shields, nor do I see this in my lines. The family surname that I am certain of for this is a Day family from Gloucester, MA. Harriet or Hattie Austin Day, her daughter Helen Day Anstess Farnsworth, Hattie's grandson and granddaughter, great granddaughter and gggranddaughter. I do not know about Hattie's father John Warner Day or her mother Alice Abbie Chamberlain Pinckney (Abbie Alice Chamberlain Pinckney) both of whom resided in Gloucester, MA. I have many postcards for the Day family for both John Warner Day and his wife as well as others who were related or lived in the area. I will look for hints in these as I scan them. As I mentioned earlier, my relatives lived active, productive lives into their seventies and eighties and were able to do well with fine motor skills until the last couple of years. One family members lived with the tremors for over 60 years from the time they were first noticed.
