My great grandfather, John Shea, worked in the dining room of the Montezuma Hotel around 1883. I don't know whether he ran the dining room or was the chief bottle washer! I suspect he was a cook because the family lore is that he ran his own little restaurant in Las Vegas, NM before returning to Kansas City with his wife and small daughter (born at the Hotel on 3/24/82.
