Surnames: Cavanagh, Cavanaugh, Kavanagh, Cawley, McGuire, Finigan, Sheridan, Killy
I am researching my Cavanagh/Kavanagh/Cavanaugh line of an area I suspect is around Culleens/Glan. Does anybody know where Cavanagh Town was? I visited Ireland 3 years ago, but I didn't have the info I have now. From the Kilglass Parish records, this is my GGG grandfather, with my GG grandfather being James. James came over to the US around 1867, bringing his siblings over later. I do not know what happened to his parents, Michael and Bea.

1. Michael CAVANAGH
sp: Bridget CAWLEY (m.29 Oct 1837)
Residence: Cavanagh's Town
Sponsors: Pat Killy, Bridget Cavanagh
Year may be off by 1-2 years. Hard to follow timeline.
|-2. Mary CAVANAGH (a.1 Sep 1839-Kilglass Parish,County Sligo,Ireland)
Residence: Rathclo??ny
Sponsors: Michael Sheridan, Mary Cavanagh
Father's first name not readable on record, but think Mary belongs to this family.
|-2. James CAVANAGH (a.4 Jun 1842-Kilglass Parish,County Sligo,Ireland)
Ireland, Sligo County, Kilglass Parish
Baptismal Sponsors: Bryan Cawly, Mary Finigan
Residence: Cav Town (likely Cavanagh's Town)
|-2. Mary CAVANAGH (a.5 Feb 1846-Kilglass Parish,County Sligo,Ireland)
|-2. Honor CAVANAGH (a.1 Dec 1850-Kilglass Parish,County Sligo,Ireland)
|-2. Catharine CAVANAGH (a.15 May 1852-Kilglass Parish,County Sligo,Ireland)
|-2. Patrick CAVANAGH (a.17 Nov 1854-Kilglass Parish,County Sligo,Ireland)
+-2. Twins CAVANAGH (a.12 Dec 1858-Kilglass Parish,County Sligo,Ireland)
Ireland, Sligo County, Kilglass Parish
Baptismal Sponsors: Thomas McGuire, Briget Cavanagh
Residence: C Town (Cavanagh's Town)
The twins were Anna and Cecelia.

From Griffith's, I also suspect this is them or close relatives:
Kavanagh Charles Culleens Kilglass Sligo
Kavanagh James Culleens Kilglass Sligo
Kavanagh Matthew Culleens Kilglass Sligo
Kavanagh Michael, Jr.Culleens Kilglass Sligo
Kavanagh Michael, Sr.Culleens Kilglass Sligo

Tithe (I believe 1834):
Kilglass Culleens A118 Cavanagh, Charles
Kilglass Culleens A132 Cavanagh, Charles
Kilglass Culleens A118 Cavanagh, Mathew
Kilglass Culleens A118 Cavanagh, Michael
Kilglass Culleens A122 Cavanagh, Owen

I'm stuck on getting Michael's siblings or parents. I suspect this may be as far as I get officially. With baptismal sponsor info, I believe I've sorted "close family" from more distant Cavanaghs. Any suggestions? Does anybody connect to this line?

Any and all help appreciated! This line went to Scranton, Pennsylvania, USA, where I also grew up.

Brighton, Colorado, USA
