Hi Cyril.I have been slowly trying to find my Kavanagh Family in St. John's. I saw a book written by Bill Gillespie with regard to Newfoundland's Labour Union begining's. The book is called A Class Act. There is a picture of a James V.Kavanagh,it stated that he was one of the founding members of the union. Unfortunately there is no further mention of his name or involvment.Someone I know mentioned that he may be a relative (great-grandfather).I have not been able to verify this at this time.My grandfather was John Kavanagh born in 1881 at Harbor Grace.He worked in St. John's as a stoker for various ship owners. Hope this can help you,and if you see anything that may help me find more information on my grandfather,it would be greatly appreciated.
