I'm trying to trace my ancestry back to the original emigrant from Ireland.
I have traced back (with official records) thus far:
Cornelius Shields (1878-1943) of West Virginia, USA
married Bertha Boyce (1878-1961)....
Granville Shields (1848-1023) of Virginia
married Mary Talkington (1845-1887)
later married (1899) Louesa Lovina Swiger (1879-?)....
Thomas Shields (1825-1888) of Virginia
married Nancy Frum (1822-1883)....
I have no official records confirming the accuracy of the following information:

James Shields (1791-1852) {James had a sister named Sarah}
married Elizabeth Dillon (1793-1832)....
Robert Shields (1749-1856)
married Elizabeth ? (1750- 1840) {maiden name unknown}
John Shields (1726-1806)
married Mary Chapman (1733-1776)....
My information shows John Shields born at Ballydine Crossroads (this place may no longer exist) in Tipperary County Ireland. I have no records of his emigration nor possible emigration of his son or grandson (James and Robert) or even if they were born in Ireland or USA.
If anyone can corroborate any of this information or know of any official records to confirm this, I would appreciate it. Thanks, Becky
