Thanks for your e-mail, Bill, but having read it, I wonder if we jumped to conclusions too quickly. My Gavag(h)an family was from County ROSCOMMON, and as far as I know, they had no family in Mayo; yet, of course, they might have. My gr-grandfather, Robert, the Irish immigrant, did have a brother, Thomas, who was about six years older than he, but I have no information about whether or not that Thomas left Ireland. I do know that on 4/27/1849, a thirty-year-old man named Thomas Gavagan emigrated aboard the bark, ROBERT, but that's all the information I have on him. He was on an Alien Passenger List. The surnames that you mentioned, Kennedy, Norris, Tunney and Groake are unfamiliar, but I don't know which Gavagan married whom, although I do know that Alice never married at all. There's nothing simple about genealogy research, is there? What, if anything, do you make of all this?
