Tracing Patrick C/Kavanagh father of James C/Kavanagh born 1848.

+1 vote
Patrick is my Great-Great-grandfather.  I do not know whereabouts in Ireland he was born - James (my great-grandfather) was also born in Ireland but emigrated to England - don't know when and lived in Birkenhead, Cheshire.  He married Elizabeth Smith there in 1872 (also born in Ireland) and both their fathers were dead at that time, and they had 7 children. - William was my grandfather.    If anyone has the any of these combinations of names (I know every generation has the same lot of names!!) but would love to find out where both Patrick and James were born.  I know Elizabeth was born approx 1848 in Kings Co.,

You might be interested in contacting the Clan Cavanagh as they have genealogists that have significant info on the Cavanagh/Kavanagh line from Ireland.  Their website has their contact info.  Cecilia Boylen is the clan genealogist in England and she's absolutely a gem in assisting with finding everything and everything.
