Biography of Thomas Shea


Shea, Thomas, Buffalo, son of Daniel and Mary (Griffin) Shea, natives of Ireland, who came to Canada in 1850. Mr. Shea was born in St. Catharine's, Ontario, November 7, 1861, and in 1862 was brought by his parents to Buffalo, where he received a liberal education in the public and parochial schools. He served a five years' apprenticeship in the rolling mills of the Union Iron Works, and in 1882 engaged in the liquor business on his own account. On the completion of the Ellicott Square building in May, 1896, he removed to his present spacious and elegant quarters in that structure, where he has one of the handsomest buffets in the city. Mr. Shea is a member of the C. M. B. A. In November, 1888, he married Elizabeth Morrissey, of Buffalo, who died February 23, 1897, leaving three children: Thomas, jr., Mary Victoria, and Agnes.
