Charles Cavanaugh married Bridget Donnelly?

+8 votes
I have exhausted all efforts in trying to confirm details which were hand written by Mary Leona Cavanaugh (1917-2007).

She detailed that her grandfather, Charles Cavanaugh (1856-1927) married Bridget "Delia" Donnelly (1855-?). Both were born in Ireland.

Charles/Bridget's offspring was John J. Cavanaugh, born in Danbury/Derby/Denver, CT. around 1883. I know John J. married Margaret Huss (1888-1971). I have plenty facts verifying this couple.

I cannot find a birth certificate for John J. which could lend some clues as to his parents named on the handwritten paper by Mary Leona. John J., Margaret and Mary Leona are all buried in Shakopee, Scott County, MN.

Does anyone have insight into Charles Cavanaugh and/or Bridget Donnelly born in Ireland in the mid 1850's? I do not see a profile for any of these people I've mentioned.

Thanks Eddie. I have seen this but there are a few John J. Cavanaughs. This may be one but I'm still trying to find confirmation in CT vital records so I could see who are listed as his bio parents. Appreciate the response tho!

Judith,  no,  Bridget on my family tree was a McVey (McVeigh) in Ireland, born 1820s and married my 3rd grandfather, Peter Donnelly and Bridget lived in Waddington, New York. They were married (I think) in Canada.   She pasted away in 1888 and buried at the old St Mary's cemetery in Waddington and there a picture of her grave site on Gravesite web site.  Her son, Patrick Donnelly, never married, died 1932 is buried also and his name is on the bottom of the grave stone.  Hope is helps?     By the way, there are no more Bridget names in my family.
