My gr-grandmother was Catherine Lavin, born in Ireland to John and Bridget Lavin. Records vary on her age...she says she was 16 when she married John McGauley in 1874 (makes her born in 1858). But I have found another account (death certificate) which says she was born in 1862. I doubt the RC Church would allow a 40 something year old man to marry a 12 year old girl.
So....in some records I found she had four brothers, all un-named...and one had died prior to 1905. A James Lavin was living with John and Catherine McGauley in 1883 at 2865 Stouten Street.
Looking for descendants of these Lavin brothers.
