Bernard Canavan b.1808 m. Bridget McErlain b.1832

I am looking for any information on the parents of either of these ancestors. Bernard was born in Ulster, County Antrim, Aberghill Ireland in 1808. He arrived in New Orleans in 1847 with his brother Thomas. Around 1854 he met and married Bridget McErlain who had come to America from County Cork with two cousins named Kennedy in 1852. Bernard died in 1882, Bridget in 1896. They had a daughter named Mary Isabelle b. around 1873. They lived in New Orleans until their deaths.

If anyone has any information on the ancestors of Bernard or Mary, please e-mail me or post here.
Thank you.
