I did a check at St. Gabriel's. Shamus is a modern spelling for
Seamus which is a variant of James. It was a Gaelic name used in
Ireland in the time you are aiming for. There was no reference for
Tokala. What prompted that choice? It might give a lead to follow up.
You can check here for what I found on on the Shamus.
Let me know more about the last name and I will see what can be dug
up. Your local herald is always a good start but also a lot can be
found at your very own public library. Personally, I love a good web
search too! What I found for Tokala was pretty interesting. The
slight majority of the references were to the Lakota tribe here in
the U.S. They made for some neat reading.
