William Shea and Gertrude Cornelius Fritz married. They had two daughters: Allie M. and Edna H. Shea. I hadn’t expected to ever know their middle names, but thanks to William’s livestock, I was able to learn what that M. stands for.
Gertrude Fritz was the youngest born of my third great grandfather Benedict Fritz’s eight children. That makes her my second great grandaunt.
