David McGees/Magees in Cavan, 1848

In Griffith's Valuation for Ireland, 1848, there are two David McGees/Magees listed for Cavan. They were both in Kildallan Parish, townlands of Clonkeen and Drumlarah. David McGee/Magee was a very unusual name for Ireland at that time. To illustrate, there were only 11 David McGees/Magees listed for all of Ireland, out of over 2000 with that surname. Five more of them were just across the nearby border with Fermanagh, in Kinawley Parish, townlands of Drumconor, Mullaghinshogagh and Derrychorran. I have an ancestor, David McGee, who came to North America @1760. Given the fact that the name is unusual, I am wondering if anyone knows anything about these Cavan and Fermanagh McGees and if there may be a connection.
