Ship and Immigration regarding Michael Canavan .

Year 1900 Michael “also known as", Martin Canavan b. 1878 Renvyle, Ireland documented -- Mary Flaherty, "Maggie" as relative on the Phila. Pa ship record. Source attached gives details and an address in Oakland, Pittsburgh.

Would this be the daughter of Mathis Canavan, Mary Ann Canavan m. to John Flaherty?

Micheal Canavan is connected to the Welsh/Haney/Connelly familes. Documentation on Martin/Michael Canavan found 1910 Stowe township census, Allegheny 1920 and 1930, Mckees Rocks, Allegheny census occupation fireman for P&LE Rail Road lastley is married to Annie in 1902. The Canavan family resided on the same street Shaw Ave. and lived next to the Welsh's in Stowe Township, Allegheny, PA. Both families have remained close during their lives. Older relatives mention Aunt Katie from Ireland and married a Pittsburgh contractor. Story of Aunt Katie is a mystery? Katie’s husband had a successful contracting company located in Pittsburgh around Mt. Lebanon and built the Dormont Pool in Dormont, Pittsburgh, PA. Katie’s life may be another link to the Canavan and Welsh families? She was either a Canavan or Haney ? This story remains unsolved----the connection between the families.

Subject II: Simon Canavan’s two daughters Bridget, Mary, and Patrick J. Welsh

Simon had three daughters Nora, Bridget, and Mary. Two daughters of Simon Canavan were located on the Mckeesport, Allegheny 1900 census Bridget m. Philiip Coyle 1890 and Mary m. Patrick Welsh 1889. Both Canavan sisters Bridget Coyle and Mary Welsh resided on the same street in McKeesport 9th Ward. The other unknown link is Patrick J. Welsh sibling of Michael Welsh?

Patrick J. Welsh immigrated 1885 from Ireland to Pittsburgh then m. Mary Canavan 1889. Patrick may indeed be a sibling of my Gr. Granddad Michael Welsh b. 1871. Immigrated from Ireland to the US in 1886, resided in Allegheny, Stowe, Mckees' Rocks, PA. Need further documents to cross-reference and confirm the relationship.

Information much appreciated and a must for cross-reference
