Surname: McDermott, Cavanaugh, Gunn

Michael McDermott, b. 1797 d. 1872 and Hanora Cavanaugh, b. 1803 came from 
county Mayo?, Ireland between 1840-1850 to Cantley, P.Q.
Their children were Mary, b. 1827; Catherine, b. 1831; Julia b. 1834; 
Michael b. 1837; Patrick, b. 1837, d. 1924; and Martin, b. 1841.

Patrick married Margaret Gunn around 1867 she died in 1880. They had 
four sons: Michael, b. 1869; Joseph, b. 1871; Ambrose b. 1876; Paul 
August b. 1879.
Patrick re-married in 1883 to Pamelia McGoey, b. 1859, d. 1928. Their children

Patrick b. 1889; Thomas Francis b. 1890; Edward b 1892; Helena b. 1893; Gertrude

I have information on many of their descendants. I would be interested in contact 
with any other descendants of Michael and Hanora.

I know that she was born in Ireland in 1808. She married Arnold Graffte, lived in St. Georges, Quebec, Canada, and had at least 2 sons, Edward and Thomas. She died in 1888. If you have any info on her, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you, Cindy Spain
