I'm researching my great grandfather, Thomas F. Sheeran, born abt. 1864 and his wife Mary Flanigan, born 1870, both were born in New York. They lived in Albany, NY and had 3 children, James E. born 1893, Helen,(my grandmother) born 1895, and Mary (Mayme) born 1898. Mary was widowed at the age of 30, when Thomas died in 1899. She lived with her mother, Elizabeth Flanigan at 93 Franklin St., and then at 51 Canal St., Albany, NY. Thomas' parents were Thomas F. Sheeran and his mother was Bridget McConnon, both born somewhere in Ireland. Thomas and Bridget lived in the south end of Albany. If anyone has any information on this family, I would love to here from you.
