Kavanaugh from Ft. Erie, Ontario, Canada/ Buffalo, N.Y.
Posted by: Charles Franz (ID *****7619) Date: October 26, 2003 at 08:17:31
  of 421

I am seeking any information on the following people.
Martin Kavanaugh, who played third base for the Bridgeburg Mentholatum Baseball Team , of Bridgeburg, Ontario, Canada, in 1926.
I also have the following listing from the 1927 Voters` List, Municipality of Bridgeburg, Ontario, Canada:
Ward 1: Kavanaugh, Catherine, W., 12 Russell St.
Ward 3: Kavanaugh, Wm., Foreman, 7 Bowen Rd.
Kavanaugh, Catherine, W., 7 Bowen Rd. (W usually stood for widow)
Kavanaugh, Martin, railway employee, Bowen Rd.
Kavanaugh, Margaret, S., Bowen Rd. (S usually stood for spinster)
I feel that this might be a error in spelling, by the voters` list taker, I have been told they did not ask spellings of names, just wrote it as they thought it should be spelled. I think these might be the following people.
From 1919 Buffalo, N .Y . City Directory:
Cavanaugh, Catherine, wid. James P., 128 Dearborn St.
Cavanaugh, Harold J. , 128 Dearborn St.
Cavanaugh, Margaret E. , 128 Dearborn St.
Cavanaugh, William J. , foreman, 128 Dearborn St.
From 1920 New York Soundex:
Cavanaugh, Anna, head of family, age 51, b. Canada
Cavanaugh, Margaret, daughter, 29, b. Canada
Cavanaugh, William, son, 31, b. Canada
Cavanaugh, Harold, son, 22, b. Canada
Cavanaugh, Martin, son, 18, b. Canada
residence: 128 Dearborn St, Buffalo, N .Y .
From St. Michael`s Church, Ft. Erie, Ontario, Canada, Baptism records:
Cavanaugh, Mary, b. Ft. Erie, Aug. 14, 1891, f. James, m. Catherine Lewis
Cavanaugh, Catherine, b. Victoria, Dec. 6, 1894, f .James, m. Catherine Lewis
Cavanaugh, Harold J., b. Bridgeburg, Je. 17, 1897, f. James, m. Catherine Lewis
Cavanaugh, Ellen Mary, b. Ft. Erie, Aug. 30, 1898, f. James, m. Catherine Lewis
Cavanaugh, Martin, b. Bridgeburg, Aug. 29, 1901, f. James, m. Catherine Lewis
Harold died in an auto accident in Bellwood , Ill. Mar. 1, 1933. I cannot find anything out about the other people mentioned, after 1920. I do believe there were relatives of these people living on Bowen Rd., near Ft. Erie, as late as 1944. Any and all help greatly appreciated. If you think you might have any information that might help, please contact me at chuckfranz@yahoo.com
Thank you,
Charles Franz
