Hello. My husband is a Canty. I havent had any luck yet tracing his ancestors very far. His fathers name was Maurice William Canty born in Louisiana, and his dad is William Terrence Canty, who lived & died in Louisiana, but I dont know where they came from before that. I think William came from elsewhere, I am not sure. My mother in law says she traced them back to Cork County Ireland, but hasnt shared any info with me.
