As you can see I am also a Davitt and I'm from Mayo. I come from a little town outside Westport called Newport (approx. 11km). I just thought you'd like to know that there aren't that many Davitt's around the Westport/Castlebar area - I can only think of one other Davitt family offhand. However, I have no idea if any of my ancestors emigrated to the U.S., but perhaps my father would know - his name is also Michael Davitt.
