Thomas O'Shea

From on Saturday, 17 October, 2009
Hello I was searching the web for information on Archbishop Thomas Carr (Melbourne) and Archbishop Thomas O'shea (New Zealand).
My Great Great Grandfather John Richard Carr born Londonderry, (father Michael Carr, mother Bridget Dwyer) he married Margaret O'shea or Shea (born Kilkenny Ireland) in 1869 at Inglewood Victoria their first child Bridget was born at Inglewood 1869, I am convinced that Thomas O'shea is a brother to my Great Great Grandmother, and Catherine Carr is a sister to my Great Great Grandfather. I have had a Ydna test and have a few matches with people named O'shea. I would not be surprised if the two Archbishops were related to each other. If you know of any male descendants of this marriage, maybe they would be interested in taking a Ydna test with Familytreedna.com it is fairly cheap if you do it as part of a surname project, either Shea or Carr would be alright. I hope that you can cross match this information with what you have uncovered.
Kind Regards, Michael Carr
