Looking to find any information on the Shaughnessy family of Barrettstown, first name James, he was a farmer.  Parish Oldconnell, married (1865) to Alicia (Allis) Shaughnessy (Power), her father's name William Power.  He (James) would have been my Great Great Grandfather.

They had three childern, two girls and one boy, one of the girls died as a baby.  The boy Patrick (1868) grew up to be my Great Grandfather, he worked as a railway porter/guard.

The name Shaughnessy, sometimes O Shaughnessy.

Currently doing the family history.

    Also looking for Power, Alicia Power married James Shaughnessy in 1865.  Her fathers name was William Power, looking for her mothers name?
