Catherine McGivern, daughter of Anthony

Catherine McGivern was my great-great grandmother. She was born in Ireland sometime around 1822. By 1850, she was living in Dubuque County, Iowa. It appears that her father's name was Anthony. He is listed as being 57 years old in 1850. It also appears as though Catherine had several siblings including:
Margaret, b. 1820; Patrick, b. 1824; John, b.
1826; Mary, b. 1828; Peter, b. 1834; and Robert, b. 1844. The birthyears must be
viewed with some caution, as ages on census records were often incorrect. Also, no relationships are expressed in the 1850 census, so the parent/child/sibling relationships are assumptions on my part.

If any of these names ring a bell with anyone, I would appreciate a response.
Kind regards,
