My gg-grandfather left Irelandabt 1850 and settled in Maryland near Baltimore. According to myDadthe familyloreindicated taht he and his siblings came from Wicklow. His name was John Kavanaugh- spelled "Cavanah" on his citizenship papers.He married an Irish girl , Ann Martin. I'm not certain if they married there or in Maryland -I'mstill checking.Because John is such a common name -his kids, who were all born here, were named John William, Emmett Patrick, Mary E., Thomas J, Kate,and William. I know those are common too but maybe the combination and "Emmett" ia a little unique. I know this might not help but let me know.
