Name of Ancestor: ROBERT CAVIN
Query: CAVIN - I am seeking any information about the CAVIN family in Gaston Co./Iredell Co./Rowan Co./Alexander Co., or Lincoln Co. area of NC. I have found descendants in the Mount Holly, McAdenville, Stanley, Gastonia, NC area. I would love to have correspondence re. CAVIN's in other areas of NC or elsewhere. My g-g-g-Grandfather is ROBERT CAVIN, born around 1775 (?) in Co. Cavan, Ireland and immigrated to the US in the late 1700's to early 1800's and settled near Hiddenite, NC early 1800's(?). He was married to the former Miss SUSIE HAYNES. Children include: ZIZA GATES CAVIN, SALLIE CAVIN, WILLIAM H. CAVIN and ROBERT WINSTON CAVIN. I think that my g-g-g-Grandfather ROBERT CAVIN may have entered the US through PA (Bucks Co.?) before settling in NC, but I have no proof of this. Being the stubborn Irishman that he could have been, he probably swam over from Ireland, for I have yet to locate him or any other of my CAVIN's on any Ship's Passenger Lists on the Internet. Help! Kindest Regards, Les Cavin - cavin@charlotte.infi.net Please visit my Home Page at: http://www.familytreemaker.com/users/c/a/v/Les-D-Cavin/ "Friends: People who know you well, but like you anyway"
