It may be a longshot, however, I do have an O'Reilly married to a Cavanaugh/Kavanaugh.As far as I can tell they came from
County Roscommonthe townland of Fuerty
Maybe we should look at the map.The earliest kavanaugh I have is
He was the father of Bridgit Kavanaughmarried to Hugh Mongan
Mary Ellen Kavanaugh married to Bryan Mongan
Bridgit had a daughter named Mary who married John Flanigan.They came over with a baby daughter named Mariah.
Mariah was my great grandmother and she married Alex O'Reilly
They came to USA and settled in Omro,Wisconsin and are all buried there.
The O'Reilly seem to come from Hollymount, County Mayo.
Maybe they met on the boat because there is some speculation they knew of each other in Ireland.
