Matthew Kavanagh>Nova Scotia>Byhalia, OH

I am trying to get past what I know of our Kavanagh line that is based near Marysville, OH, north of Columbus. My grandfather, Robert Kavanagh wrote down the story that "Matthew Kavanagh married to Elizabeth Scott Nova Scotia. Was forced to study to be priest - ran away, got on ship,stopped at Nova Scotia and he stayed there - lived & died a catholic in poor standing. Champagne Co. (Ohio?) courhouse has record of a fight between two Kavanaghs and one bit the other's ear off. Few days later they went to courthouse and had record made good friends. There was a brother Peter but can find no trace. Our grandfather (my great-great) Matthew, was the son of that Matthew." My grandfather, Robert, was the son of George Kavanagh and Anna Sewell. There were five children, Arthur; Chester; Fred; Robert; and Gladys. My father is Robert Zuber Kavanagh and he has one brother, Ned. I have one brother, Christopher. OK, we know about Ohio: Matthew>Matthew>George>Robert>Robert>Gregory.Can anyone help get us from Ohio to Nova Scotia and back to Wexford, Ireland? I'm going to Ireland later this month and would love to know more.
