My great great grandfather was James Whitty son of Nicholas and Betsy Cavanaugh Whitty. He was born in 1808 in Wexford, Ireland and moved to the Gaspe Bay area of Canada. He married Virginie Dunn and they had eleven children including three sets of twins. James died in 1842 just after the death of their son Nicholas (my great grandfather.) Don't know if we are related or not. Nicholas moved to Michigan and married my great grandmother.
