Tom McSweeney married Bridget Shea sometime in the early 1900's in County Cork, Ireland. They immigrated to New York City around 1905. They are my maternal great grandparents. They had a daughter Betty (Elizabeth) McSweeney that was left in Ireland with an Aunt Hannah until they were able to bring them all over to NY around 1909. They had another son, Edmund born around 1908 in NY and another son that died as an infant. Tom worked at the subway and Bridget did housework. I don't have the names of siblings of Tom McSweeney or Bridget Shea (except Aunt Hannah) but know that many of Bridget's sisters and brothers came over after her. Bridget Shea's mother was Ann Sullivan and I believe her father was Tom Shea. I would appreciate any information on the McSweeney's or Shea's.
