Interesting that may of the names that you are researching are alson in our CABANA genealogy.
I am sharing with you a portion of our Cabana
Genealogy.

Our ancestor was John Kavanagh married to Mary Anne Cluny Blinn. The Tanguay entry reads:
From Tanguay:
Jean Cabanis married to Marie-Anne Blin, Irelandaise

Hummm. that Blin name popped up. Here is a little on the Cabana history of my ancestry.
Just wondering what you think. I know there is another CABANA group up there also of the CHARRON dit CABANA line. But ours is of the Irish immigrant that married a french gal so there is much French blood in the family.

Notes for JACQUES CABANA DIT CAVANAUGH:
YOUR FIRST ANCESTOR__ JAMES KAVANAGH : JACQUES CABANA
The originator of this family in this country came from Dublin city. It was there he was born in 1742, of John Kavanagh and Mary Ann Cluny.
The city of Dublin is the capital of Ireland and is beautifully situated on Dublin Bay, at the mouth of the River Liffey, and today numbers about 360,000 inhabitants, the suburbs included.

About two hundred years ago, the population must have been considerably less, and it is quite probable, were we to pursue the registers of the different Catholic parishes, there we should find many traces of the family.

Traditions tells us that there were four children, two boys and two girls; one of the boys became religious, the other, James, emigrated to Canada and became your ancestor. James Kavanagh, whom we shall henceforth call Jacques Cabana, emigrated to Canada between the years 1755 and 1760.

We can not find the exact date of his arrival in Canada. The first trace of him is in his marriage contract, January 1760. He had probably then lived in Canada for a few years at the date of his marriage in 1760; he was aged 18 years. So he would have left Ireland for Canada when he was fifteen or sixteen years old.
In 1755 and 1760, Canada was exclusively a French Colony with very few inhabitants of other different nationalities, except a few Irish Colonists who settled here and married with the French Canadians. The first of these who came over from Ireland, came because circumstances obliged them and their example attracted their relatives and friends.
It appears that your ancestor, Jacques Cabana, came here with a fellow-country man John Devine, who was much older than him It is this same John Devine whose name appears later in the marriage contract of your ancestor. He was one of the witnesses at that ceremony. John Devine arrived in the country in 1750, for he was married to a Canadian girl, Marie Robidoux, April 24, 1752.
MARRIAGE OF JACQUES CABANA
Jaques Cabana settled in the parish of St. Laurent in January 1760. St. Laurent today is a small city almost bordering on the city of Montreal. In 1760 it was a small village situated about eight miles north west of Montreal. Mount Royal separated these two cities.
Jacques Cabana was married in St Laurent Church, Feb.4 1760 to Catherine Gauthier aged 17, also of St Laurent
Eight days previous, January 27, they had their marriage contrat drawn up and signed before the Notary Hodiesne. We shall give you a copy of this contract, also a copy taken from the register kept in St. Laurent church where the marriage was celebrated.
The marriage contract mentions that Jacques Cabana as a well as his wife, lived in the part still called " Cote des Vertus". This road runs west to east and lies between St Laurent and the mountain about a half mile from the village.
In this marriage contract, we read the first witness of Jacques Cabana, is his fellow country man John Devine; Marie Robidoux whose name follows is John Devine's wife; Marie Robidoux's family also belonged to St. Laurent.
John Cabana remained in St. Laurent but four years after his marriage; during this period two children were born to him; Pierre born in 1761 and Marie in 1762.
JACQUES CABANA SETTLES IN PHILEDELPHIA -- his death
It is well to call to mind a few historical events of Canadian History. Canada was exclusively a French Colony till 1760, and what is today the United States was then an English Colony. These two colonies were almost continually at war. In 1760 England, with the help of her American Colonies, took Canada; in 1763 a treaty of peace was signed and all of North America claimed by the English. Montreal, St Laurent and Philedelphia were all, one as much as the other, under English Government.
Jacques Cabana left St. Laurent in the spring of 1764 and went to live in Philadelphia. In the beginning of February 1765, Jacques Cabana's wife gave birth to her third child who was called James, after his father. It is this James who became your grandfather's father.
Scarcely two months had elapsed since the birth of his third child, when Jacques Cabana at the age of 23 was taken suddenly from his young family; and his young widow, Catherine Gauthier, found herself in a very embarrassing situation as she was scarcely twenty-two years of age herself, and could but with great difficulty speak English. While she was living in St Laurent, French was the only language spoken there at that early period, and she could not have learned much English during the short time she had been in Philadelphia. Moreover, she had to provide for her three young children, the eldest being but five years old and the youngest two months.
Tradition states that young widow Cabana, remained in Philadelphia and New York of the next two years, before she returned to live in St. Laurent, where she was sure of the protection of her family and friends.
On July 18, 1767, soon after her arrival at St. Laurent, we find a very interesting entry made in the parish register, testifying that your great grandfather was then baptized at the age of two years, five months and a half. In Philedelphia and New York where the young widow had lived after the birth of her son Jacques, there was no resident Catholic clergy.

The Baptism of Jacques Cabana reads as follows: ( Translated from French)
" The year one thousand seven hundred sixty-seven the eighteen day of July was baptized, by me, the undersigned, Jacques, at two years five months and a half, son of the late Jacques Cabana of Irish descent, and of Catherine Gauthier his father and mother, Catholics, and married in the church. God- father Henri Girouard, God-mother Marie Josephte Cousineau-Girouard who signed with me the God father having declared he could not sign.
( Signed) Marie Josephte C.G. Beauzelle ptre.

As we learned previously Jacques Cabana left three children; a boy Pierre, the eldest; a girl Mary, and a second son Jacques. In his youth Pierre, the eldest made trips out to Western Canada, engaged in fur trade. There is not a trace her ever married and it appears he never returned from the West.

Marie Catherine, the second child married at the age of 18. Her marriage celebrated at the church of Notre Dame, Montreal, Canada, Nov. 13, 1780; this shows us that at this date the widow Catherine Gauthier had left St. Laurent, to live in the city of Montreal.

The third child James, the continuator of your line, your great, grandfather, was adopted by one of his uncles, his mother's brother. When he was old enough to work, he left for a trip to Western Canada with his older brother, Pierre. He went as far as Rainy Lake , and Lake of the Woods, as he was engaged in the fur trade. He earned much money during his voyage, enough to buy a large farm in " La Grande Freniere," part of St. Eustache parish.
Jacques Cabana was married in the church at St. Eustache, the 24th of October 1796, age 31 to Miss Amable Rouleau a young girl of 18 years.

" JACQUES CABANA AND AMABLE ROULEAU THEIR CHILDREN.

Jacques Cabana and Amable Rouleau were blessed with a large family. Eight of their children , six boys and two girls, grew to be fine men and women in in time were honorably married. They settled in St. Eustache, in "Grand Freniere" and"Petit-Brule". These two roads are parallel and are each about six miles long and separated the whole length by the " Riviere du Chene" which empties into a branch of the St. Laurent, near St. Eustache village.
The six sons of Jacques Cabana and Amable Rouleau were called: Jacques, Charles, Jean-Baptiste, Francois, Benjamin and Francois-Xavier. The two girls were called Louise and Adeline. Let us say immediately, it is Charles, the second son, who is your grandfather.
Jacques the eldest married the first time in St. Eustache, July 25, 1819, Catherine Leonard dit Simon, and he married his second wife, Emelie Leguerrier in the same parish, March 1, 1824. It was of this second marriage that the two priests, Francois Xavier Kavanagh and Timothee Kavanagh were born.
Charles Cabana, the second son, is your grandfather. He married your grandmother Julie Fortier in St. Eustache, July 28, 1824. I think I have already told you that Julie Fortier had an elder sister, Angelique Fortier married to Charles Proulx whose daughter Ester Proulx is my mother's mother.

" YOUR GRANDFATHER __ Charles Cabana
Your grandfather, Charles Cabana, after his marriage with Julie Fortier in 1824, lived about 25 years on the Petit-Brule Row, part of the parish of St. Eustache. It was there that your father was born and all of his brothers and sisters. On 1845, his eldest son Charles, at the age of 25 years married Adeline Lemer, a young girl of St. Hermans, a neighboring parish.
Toward 1850, your grandfather Charles Cabana left his brothers and his nephews in the county of the Two Mountains, and traveled towards the United States. He made his first halting place at St. Louis de Gonzague, a parish that he lived when your father married in 1859. A little later on, he definitely settled with his family in the state of Vermont.
A short while before his marriage, your father temporarily left his family and went to work on a newly opened lands in the county of Compton; it was there he met the family Rainville, providently preparing for his marriage in 1859. At the time of their marriage your father and mother were living in a region called Coaticook. No parish had yet been erected there and the Pastor of Compton had the spiritual care of the surrounding district, therefore we have taken the marriage contract from the registers of Compton; we shall meet the copy of it further.
You learn nothing now if we tell you that later your father left Coaticook to go and settle with his brothers in the state of Vermont.
