When you say your Michael McEntee lived in the Cavan area, what do you mean? There might be several Michael McEntee in the 1818 era.

There was Michael McEntee of Lisclaugher, who on 17 January 1758 leased (for 31 years) 60 acres of land called “Derrygoony” from Richard Adams of Carronay, County Cavan [P.R.O.N.I. Volume 278, page 80, memorial number 176955 ].

My McEntee resided (as tenants) in the townland of Cornamaugh, parish of Enniskeen, barony of Clankee, County Cavan in the tithe applotment books as tenants of Col. Pratt. Later my Andrew McEntee (1825-1901) acquired about 35 acres in the Cornamaugh townland.

As you may know, in the first half of the Nineteenth Century the surname McEntee was rather common in almost every parish of southeast County Cavan and townlands bordering County Monaghan, where the surname was also very frequent. I am interested in sorting out the County Cavan families of McEntee for they obviously migrated into Cavan at sometime from Monaghan or maybe Armagh. My e-mail is Best wishes
