1821 "I have a cousin who has done some research on the McGivney/McCabe family. She corresponded with an Andrew McGivney who, in 1988, resided in Crenew, Kilnaleck town, County Cavan. He was able to help her with some of the information that we have. I descend from Andrew Meguivney/McGivney and Catherine McCabe. There is a McGivney junction in New Brunswick, Canada. My cousin seems to think that our McGivney line was from Drumloman which is next to t he townland of Crenew. Andrew sent her what he found in the 1821 census for Drumloman.

Bernard McGivney, age 55, owned 27 acres of land

Mary- age 52

their children

Andrew (my line) age 21

Thomas age 19

Bryan age 12

James age 10

Anne age 14

Eliner age 10

Mary age 17

My cousin thinks the parish may have been Crosserlough. One of the McGivneys, Michael, was the founder of the Knights of Columbus. My father used to talk about that. That branch of the McGivneys emigratedto Waterbury, CT. In 1827, there was a Bryan McGivney listed for the townland of Crenew and he owned the 27 acres previously owned by Bernard. The thinking is that Andrew McGivney, b ca 1800, went to the townland of Pottlebrack as a farm hand and met and married Catherine McCabe. Catherine was born in Pottlebrack ca 1804, the daughter of Dennis McCabe. Andrew and Catherine emigrated to this country in August of 1833 along with Catherine's brother, Patrick, "Paddy" McCabe. They settled in Malone, Franklin County, NY, which had a large Irish settlement. My cousin, Carole McGivney, found in the Tithe Applotment Book that identifies Patrick McCabe of Pottlebrack, parish of Knockbridge, Co. Cavan. for 1827.

April 16,1825 The support which the Catholic Association drew in Cavan inevitably provoked much conflict and violence in the county. In the above letter, Fr. O’Rielly concludes with the following passage: “I should not omit to mention that considerable efforts have been made to impede, if not wholly to prevent, the collection of rent in the neighbourhood." Nine weeks later, Fr. O'Reilly himself proved a victim of the outbreak of violence the following report of his murder appeared in the Dublin Weekly Register,Wednesday, April 6th, 1825 : “ Atrocious Murder -The Rev. P. O'Reilly, Administrator of the parish of Kilnaleck, whilst returning home in the evening about a fortnight ago, was waylaid and barbarously murdered. Our correspondent in Granard informs us that the Coroner's inquest on the body was three - several time adjourned, at length the Jury brought in the following verdict 'came by his death in consequence of wounds inflicted by some person or persons unknown'." The report continues to say " It is said, we trust without foundation, that this inhuman murder like many others which have disgraced the North, was the effect of party spirit. We expect that this affair will be strictly investigated. Though the Catholic Association no longer exists, the Public Press will endeavour to Supply its place and watch over the administration of justice". The Heart of Briefne DA990, C29, H42

"I am seeing ancestors for John BOYLAN and his wife Margaret COMERFORD (c.1865-1940). They lived all their married life at Tonylion, Kilnaleck, County Caven. His mother may have been Anne COYLE and there is also a relationship somewhere with QUINN. And at some point, the Comerford's changed their name to COMISKEY.
