McGivern, Thomas and Sarah 1890 PA

I am interested in any information about the McGivern family from County Down. My great grandparents were Thomas and Sarah McGivern. They came to the United States around 1890 and settled in Philadelphia. I don't know anything about Thomas' family. Sarah, whose maiden name was also McGivern was the daughter of Bernard and Mary Mcgivern. She was born in 1872. We have some old letters that mention some siblings. Peter, Edward (a priest), John (a priest) and a sister named Mary Kate. There may have been more. Some of the family emigrated to South Africa. There was a mention of a church called Christ the King that one of the brothers was pastor in Balnyhinch. Would appreciate any information. Thank you. Claire
