Thank you for your reply. The Davin brothers I am related to were the sons of Thomas Davin. I have no knowledge of them going out west. I do know that there is information as to them being in the South prior to the Civil War. Patrick Davin was a Sgt. in the 5th Cavalry(Union) during the Civil War and resided in Washington D.C. in later years until his death.There is also a connection to Philadelphia and Park Slope Brooklyn. Family members did travel to the Gloversville, NY.area in the summer.
