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.

    Cavanaugh of San Francisc

    Hello Cavanaughs, I'm an American Cavanaugh who has traveled through Ireland and specifically around Dublin and County Cork, we are apparently an unusual branch of Cavanaughs as we are all born and raised in the West Coast of the US. I'd like to know if anyone else here is from the west coast.

    I have a record of all the generations of Cavanaughs beginning with my 3x great grandmother Bridget Cavanaugh 1827-1895 and her two brothers; Michael 1830-1906 and Thomas 1838-1916. It states the brothers and their nephew, my 2x great grandfather, John Glenn, came to America first in 1863. John returned to Ireland in 1865 to bring his father and mother back. I have nothing telling me from where in Ireland they are from.

    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.
