Re: Smyth from Cavan to USA

thanks for the response but we may only be distant cousins of unknown connection.
My Philip SMYTH was probably born a little later than yours and, whilst I understand he had brothers who went to the United States, he never did.
In 1870 he was in Singleton, New South Wales: there is a newspaper report of his suing a former employer for unpaid wages.
He married in Australia in 1867 an Elizabeth WHITE.
He was from a place the English called Scrabby but now bears the Irish name Loch Gowna in Co. Cavan.
Good luck with your search.
