Hi, Christine It's good to see that you are still researching the family line.

and Steven, I'm also interested in this family line. My mother is a descendent of this family, but there may be some confusion. As I understand it, there were 2 different Cavanaugh families in the Maidstone area at about the same time.... both from Ireland and had sons with the same names. I'm not able to prove it yet but am still looking.

Steven.... are you in the Windsor area? Contact me if you wish.... in Windsor.

Hi Perry,
Yes still trying to confirm some things.
I do have a few questions:
1.My grandfather Gerald Charles Kavanaugh had a brother Michael b/d 1925 - I can't find anything on him
2.James K/C had a son Charles who married Mary Daniher - Is this our family?
3.Michael K/C married a Bridget Dowd their children; Charles - Margaret - Mary - Thomas - Joseph.Margaret married John Edwards and Mary known as Rose married August Schumacher - Joseph married Mamie their children;William and Ruth - Is this our family?
4.James C married Bridget O'Grady their daughter Mary married a McCarthy the other children Winnifred - Marguerite - James - Joseph..Again what is the relation?

Perry I can confirm my grandfather and siblings as Thomas Francis "Frank" children and Michael and Rose [Delisle] grandchildren.I was wondering in your research if you have ever come across any pics of my great grandfather Thomas Francis "Frank"?

That's some very valuable information. I remember when you were here with Linda and we were discussing the death of a Michael Kavanaugh. We had some discussion about the validity of the information and there was some confusion with one Michael J. Kavanaugh who also drowned. So that now answers the question and clears the confusion. The Michael J. (Jerimiah)in my records drowned in Stratton, Ontario.

My records, which are obviously wrong, from your and your sister-in-laws research, Michael Joseph Kavanaugh was born and died in 1925. I'll correct my records and verify the information with documentation.

do you have any information concerning Michael's 8 siblings?
