*Note:  Information on birth dates varies from source to source.  In this document I used ages listed on the Probate Record for Bridget Hogan as they seemed the most logical. Also, the marriage date for James Shane and Theresa McDonough or the birth date of Frank Earl may be incorrect.

*Note:  The first child of the Shanes was Mary Shehan who lived just two short months… her story is included on this blog,
