I am attempting to find the birthplace of my gr-grandfather James Kavanagh born c 1848 in Ireland. Father's name Patrick Kavanagh. This is all the early information I have on him.
He is next found in Birkenhead, Cheshire, England when he married Elizabeth Smith in Jan 1872 - she was also born in Ireland but in King's County.
Elizabeth Smith was my gr-grandmother - John was her father. She married James Kavanagh in Birkenhead, Cheshire, England in 1872 and they had 7 children. I am trying to trace her place of birth within King's County and also her mother's name and any siblings.
I am tracing my gr-grandfather's brother (name unknown) who left BIRKENHEAD, CHESHIRE, ENGLAND in the late 1880's. My gr-grandfather was JAMES KAVANAGH and he is rumoured to have 'drowned at sea' en route to the U.S. but in recent years a couple of ladies from California arrived in Birkenhead after tracing their family. I live in Canada now and got this information 3rd hand from a recently discovered 2nd cousin. So we have assumed that the brother arrived in California. If anyone can help that would be appreciated. Thanks, Angela
