The Irish name Kavanagh, Cavanagh, Cavanaugh and all of its various spellings comes from the gaelic "Caomhánach" meaning "born handsome". The first recorded "Caomhánach" was the son of Diarmuid Mac Murrough, a 1200AD King of ancient Leinster, Donal Caomhánach.

I'm trying to find records for Keron Cavanaugh, born abt. 1832 in Ireland. He came to America (New York) in either 1841 or 1849. His children were Joseph W Cavanaugh Sr. 1866 - 1933, and Mary Cavanaugh born 1876. He lived in Manhattan, New York. Joseph was my Granmother's father. She was Anne Regina Cavanaugh, and her daughter, Alice Gertrude Craig was my mother.
Well our Great Great Grandfather came over from over from Ireland in 1851 from Wicklow
