Surnames: McCarthy, Caverly

Looking specifically at the McCarthy families from Kilmore, Lissane, Tooreen, Garryglass.

Tooreen - Cornelius McCarthy and Mary McCarthy McCarthy moved to Tooreen from Kilmore; married 1860. Had seven daughters, my g-grandmother Margaret was the oldest. Have some info on Margaret, sister Nora (immigrated and married O'Brien), sister Ellen (married Maher), parents Cornelius and Mary, can't find death record for Mary. Cornelius and Mary were my grandfather's maternal grandparents.

Kilmore - Timothy, with son Cornelius, b.c. 1873, may have lived in Shandrum and eventually in Derrygrea; Timothy may have married Mary Donovan 1856 in Dunmanway. Investigating whether he was a brother of Cornelius in Tooreen.

Garryglass - Descendants of Cornelius McCarthy and Kate Burke; may have married 1859 in Dunmanway. Looking for relatives and descendants of their oldest son Daniel b. 1863, a well-known schoolmaster. I know Daniel's siblings, wives and names of children. Would like to know more about Cornelius's origin. As Daniel is the oldest boy perhaps his grandfather was also named Daniel...

Lissane - Cornelius McCarthy and Mary Collins McCarthy, had a daughter Margaret, I think Mgt married Richard Caverly. Mgt died 1906, son Andrew Caverly lived in Lissane with his uncle Andrew McC in 1911 census. Still a theory. Does anybody know about Lissane McCarthys?

Timeframe for all from mid-late 19th century, early 20th. Some of these McCarthys were probably Sowney.

I am also keeping tabs on this thread:
