McColgin Family Genealogy Forum
My ggreat-grandmother was Catherine McColgan (Kitty) who married Denis Cavanagh (also spelled Kavanagh, Kivenaghan) in Jan 1864. They had 3 children: Catherine who died as a baby, Magy and Denis - my grandfather born in 1867. Denis and Magy who became Margaret came to Boston around 1888. I wondered if anyone recognized these names.
Catherine McColgan's father was named Denis also. They were from Effishmore which is near Cardonagh in the Culdaff parish.
