Hi Kathleen, Patti, Beth

Thanks for the posted replies; now I know there are some Shine families in
Chicago I need to find out when my Great Grandmother arrived in the USA and
if she did have a sister already there. My mother is in Ireland at this
moment and has the photo (with address) with her. My GGmother could have
been born in the Clonmel area of Ireland. I'll keep you posted if I find
anything more definite

<My husband's cousin is Jean SHINE McKee and we have information about her
father's family. Via another cousin met online, we have the SHINE family

beginning with Michael Shine 1825 - 1867, who married Anna Magner 1832 -
1906 and had children:

1) William T. (1855 - 1947) married Catherine McDade and had children:
William T. Jr. married Mary Scanlan; Joseph B. Shine married Anna Ward;
Anna; James E. (married Catherine Hayes), John F. (1897-1967) married
V. Heelan; and Margaret (1900-1969) married Thomas P. Holmes

2) Anna Maria Shine (1857 - 1943) married James Francis McManimen - This is

family of cousin who provided the family history and he has history of

offspring: Eward, Michael, Alice, William, Charles, James McManimen,

Anna, Mary, and Neil McManimen

3) Michael G. Shine (1861-1925) married Mary McMahon (my husband's great
aunt and Jean Shine McKee's great grandgrandmother) who had children:
(Mrs. Lawrence Wilson); Joseph M. (Jean's father); Marie (Mrs. Daniel
Maurice (a Trappis monk who died in 1998) . I have information and photos
this family.

4) John P. Shine (1863-1908) married Dora Hill and had Anna (Mrs. William
Fitzgibbon). Widowed, John then married Margaret Scanlan.

5) Cornelius Shine (1866-1947)

The next generation married into the following families: Petersen, Horecny,

Stratton, Heelan, Leamy, Luce, Dunne, Markey, Schubert, McKee, Drover and

The Scanlan family intersects the Shine family at three different points:
William T. II married Mary Scanlan; Mary McMahon (Mrs. Michael G. Shine)

the sister of Gertrude Evangaline McMahon (Mrs. Frank T. Scanlan); and
Margaraet Scanlan (second wife of John P. Shine) was the their cousin.

If anyone is connected to any of the these families, I'm happy to share

I have re our SHINES and will forward your emails to the cousin (met

who shared the family info above with me, who has done all the relevant

Thank you, Beth. I had email responses in 2003 from Scott after a query I
posted about SHINE, and knew the William FitzGibbon/wife Anna Shine
I did not know how Jean Shine fit in. I am only guessing that Jean is a
cousin in my FitzGibbon family because she signed my grandfather's book at
funeral home, and my mother had told me years ago that she had cousins named

Shine. I do not have a William FitzGibbon (that I know of) in my
family. It seems there should be a connection in all of this.
