I have a marriage license from Michael and Julia Lydon/Leyden who were married in Massachusetts 1852. It says that Julia was born in Kinvraraugh, Ireland. Does anyone know if that was ever a spelling for Kinvara? Also, Michael is listed as being from "Ovenvoir",Ireland. I cannot find any information or an area similar to that spelling. Any info would help! Thanks in advance.

Amanda,

Bad spelling was so common place. My guess is Kinvara or Kinvarra and Oranmore. Both are in south Galway near the coast
