Shea, his brother. The past four years a considerable amount of granolithic [sic] sidewalks were constructed for the city by Mr. Shea. He was the son of William Shea, who was a trooper in the "Light Brigade" of the British Army when it made its memorable attack on the Russian batteries at the battle of Balaklava in the Crimean War. This attack was immortalized by Lord Tennyson in his poem "The Charge of the Light Brigade." All the surviving members of the brigade were decorated with the Victoria Cross by Queen Victoria herself. This trophy was kept for years in the old Shea homestead on Common street, but after the house was damaged by a fire many years ago is disappeared and was never found afterwards. The survivors include the widow, five daughters, Mrs. Catherine Keegan, Mrs. Elias Canfield, Mrs. William Cushman, Miss. Marjorie Shea, and Miss Anna Shea, and by four sisters, Miss Katherine Shea and Mrs. Michael Lyons of West Quincy, Mrs. Arthur D. Murphy of Wollaston and Mrs. Annie Scollard of Braintree.
