    Notes 
    • Among the ancient Celtic names, SHEA is one of the oldest and best known. Many of America's foremost business men bear it, and it is known in every locality where there is activity and industry. The ancient city of Quincy (ancient as a settlement, if not as a city) is indebted to those bearing this patronymic for active development in one of her leading industries and for able management of municipal affairs. John[sic] Shea was born and lived in Ireland, where he was a farmer and attained the good age of ninety years. His wife's name was Catherine, and they had four sons and two daughters. Three of the sons, Michael, Thomas and William, came to America, and all settled in Quincy. All were identified with the granite business from their arrival. The first was a granite cutter, and died in Quincy in 1894. Thomas was a granite cutter, and died at the age of thirty years in 1877.
