The Davitt in Scranton I am investigating are parents of Martin Davitt. He was born about 1898, was one of two children who lived to adulthood of Margaret Lynott Davitt and a male DAvitt (His name was not mentioned in the verbal discussions, I believe he might have died young). Martin's brother was william who was born in 1888. The family home is at 1808 McDonough Ave in North Scranton. They have belonged to Holy Rosary Church in North Scranton for at least as long as Martin was alive. Appreciate any information.

There seem to be two Davitt lines running around Scranton. Yours sounds like the one descended from Hugh Davitt. He might even be the sire you're looking for. The timing sounds about right. I'm stuck in the other tree.

My father (Hugh)1928*1996 and his brother Andrew (1933-?198**} were raised at 1808 McDonough Ave Scranton. My Brother Martin (1957- present) lives there with his wife Elaine 570-347-2698) same phone number for years. Hugh and Andrew were the children of Mary (Scullon sp) and Martin Davitt ( Who was a roofer) Andrew had ten children and lived in New Jersey. Hugh lived in Scranton and had six Children ( Margaret 1955 , Martin 1957,Andrew1958,Sheila 1960, Anne Marie(b 1962d 1993, )Patricia 1963.
Parents of Hugh and Andrew were Martin and Mary Scullun. Parents of Martin were Margaret (Maggie) Lynott and Andrew Davitt. Ketricks and Hailstones were close family though I am not sure of how. I believe Maggie Lynott was relatedto Ketricks. I do beliebe Maggie Lynott was a Ketrick. There is history of Hailstones living with the Davitt's early on but I am not completly sure of the relation I believe one of Andrew's sister married a Hailstone and there was a belzielie Hailstone who may have been her sister..At one point the corner of Perry Ave to first three houses on McDonough were all related families.
