We believe this is Earl Shea with my great grandfather (and Earl’s older brother) Robert Shea. According to the 1900 and 1910 Census listings Earl was born sometime around 1893. In his mother’s obituary he was listed as living in Middleton, Ohio. Grandma thought that he might have married a woman named Gussie, and they might have had a daughter. That’s about the extent of what I think I know about him.  I haven’t found him in later Census and I’m very curious about where he went. Ah well… for now he remains one of my elusive relatives.

But the brothers look pretty dapper here!

Happy hunting,
