I am researching all KAVANAGH, CAVANAGH, etc. families of Paterson, Passaic County, New Jersey. At least some of these families came from somewhere along the County Tipperary / County Laois (aka Leix or Queens) border. I would be interested in corresponding if you are tracing KAVANAUGHs with links to either of these places. Some of the related surnames (married in Ireland) of the Paterson group include KEYS (KEYES), FANNING, MADIGAN. There are also connections to KAVANAGHs in Dakota County, Minnesota.
