Bridget Hayes  b.c.1810 Cloonaughter to Mason families residing in the townlands of O'Shea Acres, Woodfield, Kiladerry/O'Brien.  Family history has my Mason line in Co. Clare, specifically Parteen mid 1700's.

    Michael Mason b.1845 brother to Patrick above. No further information.

    James Mason of Sheaun -1911 Petty Session Court - charged with driving an unlighted horse and cart in O'Shea's Acres.  I mention this record because some of my Mason's left Parteen to obrain farms in Sheaun.        

    Would be so excited to hear from anyone with information or connected to these Masons.  I have amassed a huge collection of Mason data from all over Co. Clare trying to proove my relationship.  Hope someone can help!                                                   Judith Mason
