Hi Daddy'sgirl,
I'm sure it's possible you have already found
the family in the 1911 census.I'm posting this
link to the family just in case you don't have it
because your post is not marked 'complete' so
 just in case. :)

Hi Daddysgirl, I have stumbled on your enquiry after 6 years and hopefully you have had answers to your questions.If not maybe I can answer them for you.James Mc evoy tragically died 0n  14th August 1922,perhaps the first person in Ireland killed by a car bomb,an innocent man going to work.Search "car bomb-Irelands history".
           Katie & Pete Mc Cann had 5 children :May,Gerry,Eileen,Tony and Pete Junior (Peadar).would love to hear from you.

Hi Daddysgirl,

I think we are third cousins once removed! 

Your grandmother, Catherine McEvoy was my Dad's second cousin. 

Her father and your great grandfather, James McEvoy (1870-1922 killed tragically) was the son of Michael McEvoy and Catherine Craven (b 1836) of Balriggan, who were your great great grandparents. 

Catherine Craven was a sister of my great grandfather James John Craven (1844-1929), and their
parents were Hugh Craven (1805-1888) and Mary McGuinness (1815-1887) who married in Dundalk in 1833 and who are your great great great grandparents and my great great grandparents. 

I have loads of information and marriage and baptism and birth certificates about my paternal grandmother's family, the Cravens and their descendants going back to Hugh Craven and Mary McGuinness and at least three of their children and a grandchild who was a sister of James McEvoy, emigrated to Baltimore in the US where you also have loads of cousins.

Do message me and I can share more.

Best regards from an Irish cousin from Dundalk (but living in Dublin)
