And I thought my Dad's side of the family was colorful! ... Both of my mother's parents were adopted... and my starting point has been only a few clues of family lore as both of my grandparents have passed away.. I started digging and didn't believe what I found!! Marie Eleanor Mansfield was my great grandmother, she had quite a life... You can read the Articles from the San Francisco Examiner here.. Quite a woman for the time she lived in.... seems she lived her life in the public eye......

For those of you following the story, here are some articles published prior to "little Maria's birth: David Hanbury and his wife Marie Eleanor Mansfield Hanbury.

 McPherson/Shanahan- 1810 to present -Cork and Waterford Ireland, Nova Scotia, Massachusetts, California.

McPherson, Shanahan (Shannon), Colbert, Colby, McDonnell(McDonald), Gogin, Chennery, White, Lafferty, Fahey, Hurley, Holloran, Flynn, Slater, Hogan, DeLaney, etc.

I have Irish source docs for the 5 Shanahan Sisters from County Cork and Waterford, Ireland. Also listed are their descendants.

My Grandfather's adopted name was George Bernard McPherson b. 1887 in San Francisco CA ( possibly ), the only clues I have had to work with on this line are: His adopted mother, Caroline Shanahan McPherson, was his aunt and that his parents died in an accident when he was very young. According to the CA, San Francisco 1900 census Caroline lists herself and her parents as being born in Ireland. Family lore is she immigrated with 8 or 9 sisters( I know of Hannah and Margaret) , one stayed in Ireland, county Cork. His adopted father was John McPherson from Nova Scotia. He had told my grandmother that his last name was Lee, but I am exploring Shanahan as well.
