Murnane Kavanagh Corville

My Grandmother, Mary Josephine Murnane, was born in Roscrea circa 1891 and lived at No 6 Scart, Corville but later moved to Manchester with her brother James early in the 20th Century she later married my Grandfather William Henry Benham. Her Parents James Murnane and Annie or Anna (nee Kavanagh) were married in Roscrea.I understand that James Murnane originally came from Clonlara in Co Clare and Annie Kavanagh came from the Corbally parish, her father John owned land in Corville with Patrick Kavanagh and John Guilmartin.Mary Josephine Murnane siblings include Bridget Teresa, Johanna Gertrude, Annie, James Thomas and John Francis.John Kavanagh is buried in Camblin Graveyard with Birdget Mullally (nee Kavanagh), Anna, Patrick and Margaret.We have been able to acquire various records and certificates for further identification if required (births, baptism, marriage and death). For further information or to make an initial contact please see my details below:
