My ggrandfather was Patrick Gavin born in Oughterard,County Galway, Ireland ...date of birth unknown but probably somewhere about 1840-1850. Married Bridget Flannagan born in Oughterard,Ireland as well. They came to Cincinnati, Ohio where Patrick died in 1887 at an early age due to a motorcar accident. Bridget was unable to take care of her young children so she put them in an orphanage. Only the oldest, Stephen stayed with her until she died in 1889.Other children were Patrick, Delia, Augustus ( all died as infants or very young children) Michael and Martin ( my grandfather) went to the orphanage. Stephen and Michael lived adult lives in Ludlow, Kentucky area.Martin came to Massachusetts.Anyone with any information on Patrick, Bridget or one of the surviving sons please contact.
