CAVANAUGH Family History

The Irish name Kavanagh, Cavanagh, Cavanaugh and all of its various spellings comes from the gaelic "Caomhánach" meaning "born handsome". The first recorded "Caomhánach" was the son of Diarmuid Mac Murrough, a 1200AD King of ancient Leinster, Donal Caomhánach.

Maureen Cavanaugh

Grandfather was Michael James Cavanaugh II. My dad is the third. We’re from Pittsburgh. Trying to find out more about my family. My name is Maureen Cavanaugh. Planning on going to Ireland next year so trying to figure out where we came from

Hello. Looking for Cavanaugh relatives who emigrated in 1830's. Born in Kildare Mayo County. John Christopher and brothers Patrick and Mike

Cavanaugh

Greetings Cavanaughs! My great grandfather, Michael Cavanaugh came to the U.S. around1873, but that's as far as I've gotten. Parents James and Julia, possibly Julia O'Connor. Michael died in Philadelphia in 1910. Where any of them were between those dates is a mystery. A lot of Cavanaughs ended up in Pennsylvania so sorting them out is challenging. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks! Patti (Cavanaugh) Farris

I'm trying to find records for Keron Cavanaugh, born abt. 1832 in Ireland. He came to America (New York) in either 1841 or 1849. His children were Joseph W Cavanaugh Sr. 1866 - 1933, and Mary Cavanaugh born 1876. He lived in Manhattan, New York. Joseph was my Granmother's father. She was Anne Regina Cavanaugh, and her daughter, Alice Gertrude Craig was my mother.
