Re: Smyth from Cavan to USA
Dublin is a fair distance from Cavan!

SMYTH or SMITH as an English rendering of MacGOWAN is extremely common in Cavan.
SMYTH/SMITH as an English form of O'GOWAN might lead back to Armagh, Cavan, Down, Leitrim. I am told this line is also found in Meath and West Meath - much closer to Dublin.
I still have a candle in the window for any SMYTH of Cavan who might be looking for a lost brother, Philip, circa 1850s - here we are downunder!
