Have you seen the cemetery list. Small, only one page of my "Claffey Home
The cemetery history is there as well. It is the oldest recorded Catholic
Cemetery in Washington County PA. My husband and I, and our grandson,
cleaned it up last fall and will will be doing the same in a couple of

Jodi, Do not yet know of a connection between Cavanaugh and my Claffey
ancestors, who came from Longford Co Ireland in 1817. If they were not
related , they certainly knew each other and are buried near each other in
Donegal Catholic Cemetery in southwestern Pennsylvania.
See the page on my "Claffey Home Page" web site that names those buried
Have photos of cemetery to put online soon.
The Jane Cavanaugh buried in Donegal Catholic Cemetery had a daughter Mary
who married Locklin Egan. All came from Longford Co Ireland.

Great Famine, Kilnacarrow is a townland in Taghshinny Civil Parish in the
southeast corner of County Longford near the border with Westmeath. The
Taghshinny Church is in the adjacent townland. The Royal Canal runs
through the townland. The church is in the village of Taghshinny on a
little spur road just off the N55. Other Burkes are listed in adjacent
Hope that helps.
My gr-gr-grandparents came from Longford, Cox and McManus, Egan/Eagan and
Caughlin/Coughlin. They came to work on the Kingstone estate in Ontario.
Other names that are related to mine in the Lambton, Ontario area are Carroll
and Morrisey. Plus other names. It seems they moved around together. I
believe that Carolls' came from Tiperary. I don't know about the Morrisey's.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Have hit a great big brick wall.

No I don't know the townland in County Longford Andrew Farrell's parents
lived in. I do know that there were many Farrells in that county,
Andrew Farrell came to U. S. and was in Indiana in about 1850 or
before. He died in Indiana in 1894 at the age of 92.
