I am interested in the family of James Garvin b. 1806 Ireland and his children, Margaret, William J.,Elizabeth, and James R. Garvin. Any help at all would be great. Eric

Hi Eric - I am wondering if we are related? I am descended from Robert Mawhinney and Matilda Marrs, Ireland and William Mawhinney, their son who emigrated to NZ.I gather you are in NZ too? Many thanks

Hi Claudia, There is a distinct possibility as those folk are in my tree. Whilst it will not be close it will still be a family connection. Please email me and we can chat. Eric

Hi Eric - my email is claudia_p@xtra.co.nz. Whereabouts in NZ are you? I am in Auckland. I am descended on my mothers mothers side from the Mawhinneys, who I gather spread far and wide.I have been neglecting this research recently as I am lobbying on some local heritage issues which is taking a lot of time.
Ciao
Claudia

Hi. I'm not sure if this is the same line as mine but I'm curious. I haven't looked in to my Garvin line much yet, so I don't have much info. This is what I think I know to date: (from http://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/GARVIN/1997-08...)

Harold Henry Garvin, b. 8-8-1910 (Pgh.,PA) m. Mary Thelma Holt b.6-6-1912,(N.Versailles Twp., PA) (m.approx. 1929-30/WV). Harold Henry Garvin, Jr. b. 1930 d.1932(?); Patricia Evelyn Garvin b.11-24-1936.

James Keeling Garvin (great-great-grandfater), b. 1882 (Pgh.PA) m. Estelle Magdalene Spring b.1884
(Pgh.PA).in 1901, Pgh.PA Children: Clarence (great-grandfather) b. 1906 d. 1946(approx.); Russell b. 1908, d. 1980's(?); Harold (my father) b.1910 d. 1989?; Robert b.
1912 d. 1980's.

Do any of those match any branches match the information you have?

Thanks,
Matt

Saw your message---my husband's Garvin line started in Ireland w/ Wm Garvin (still looking for the exact location in Ireland)-born abt 1778-1790; came to Canada c1832 with wife Margaret and 4? children--one named William, another named Thomas (husband's 3rd grt grandfather). Wm Sr died about 1869; widow Margaret came to Wisconsin with her daughter Mary Ann & family. Thomas and William Jr and their families also moved to Wisconsin.
So to the best of my knowledge, no connection with PA.
