How did the Cavanaughs get from England to Philadelphia?

+1 vote
The Cavanaughs were definitely in England in 1881.  Archie has a brother, William, who was born in 1882 or 1883.  His birth is not recorded in Whitehaven or Philadelphia.  


The family is in the 1890 city directory.

I  cannot find which port they left from, or which ship they were on.


I still can't get this family out of England and into Philadelphia.  Anybody have any ideas.

I have tried all the variations of Cavanaugh, including Cavener.

and I have tried Castle Garden

Even with the free information at findmypast I cannot get these four (or five) boys and their parents out of England and into Philadelphia!
Yay. I finally found it.  They arrived on the City of Berlin in 1884,  Now to find out if Thomas is actually William (and that is why I can't usually find him).  Or if Thomas and William are separate children.  Kate says she had lost four children by 1900.

I have only found one.
I ignored that passenger list for so long because it said the father was a farmer and I know he was a miner.  

Also Archie is not indexed as Archie.  I should have looked at it much earlier.

Thank you, Frank, but all of this is in the profile.  I am looking for a means of immigration, a port of departure, or at least a year.

I can't find them on the Castle Garden website.  Even though his v mother's parents came through New York
