Francis Shea
« on: Friday 05 October 18 18:46 BST (UK) »
These are the only details that I know concerning a Francis A Shea:

Born 5th January 1910 in Manhattan, New York
Died 29th January 1977 in New York
Married Catherine Stevens in 1960 (New York)

Inscription on his headstone said T5 US Army, he was stationed in Germany

His father was James Shea and his mother was Josephine Murray

Can anyone provide any further information whether that is to do with his military service or if he was married previously.

Possible records of siblings - http://www.rootschat.com/links/01mtf/  That might help to place the family on the census, etc.

Interesting family tree with photographs of all those siblings.  Nice record to have.  If this is not you could be worth contacting the owner.
