Sponsors at Nell's baptism were Francis Thornton and Honora Thornton. Nell knew her future husband, Michael, before he emigrated to the United States, and she joined him in Kansas City, where they married.   

Of Nell and Michael's nine children, the first seven were born in Kansas City and the last two in Dallas, Texas to where the family moved when Michael took a job with the Manor Baking Comapany.

Michael's Shine family from Dirreen does not appear to have been closely connected to the Shine family of his wife, Nell's, brother Tom who married a member of the Shine family of Kilbaha, Newtownsandes, Co. Kerry. I imagine, however, that there is a distant connection.
