Owen Flynn and Martha Crawford Flynn


I am searching for my 3rd great-grandfather, Owen Flynn (1818? - 1867?), and his wife, Martha Crawford Flynn (1803? - 1866, Scotland or Ireland birth).  

They emigrated from County Cavan in the early to mid-1860s with their children:  Sarah, Martha, Elizabeth, Arthur, James, Annis, William and Joseph (not all emigrated at the same time).  All of their children were born between 1830 - 1845.  

We are going to Ireland for 2 weeks in May and I am hoping to research Owen and the Flynns in general while I am there but I would like to gather as much info as possible before we go.  Owen's parents may have been William and Ellen.  Owen returned to Ireland as he did not like the weather in America and died in the mid to late 1860s.  Owen may have been a shoemaker in or near Tomregan parish.  I do not know anything about Martha Crawford Flynn but would be interested in her family history as well.  

Thank you so much for any help that you can provide!
