CAVIN, ROBERT My g-g-g-Grandfather was born around 1775 (?) in Co. Cavan, Ireland and immigrated to the US in the late 1700's to early 1800's and settled near Hiddenite, NC early 1800's(?). He was married to the former Miss SUSIE HAYNES. Children include: ZIZA GATES CAVIN, SALLIE CAVIN, WILLIAM H. CAVIN and ROBERT WINSTON CAVIN. I have been told that he may have entered the US through PA (Bucks Co.) and lived there for a short while (?) before settling in NC.
Being the "Billy Goat Irishman" (stubborn) that he could have been, he probably swam over from Ireland, for I have yet to locate him or any other of my CAVIN's on any Ship's Passenger Lists. I have found descendants in the Mount Holly, McAdenville, Stanley, Gastonia, NC area. I would love to have correspondence re. CAVIN's in other areas of PA, NC or elsewhere.
