Hello to All!

I am seeking any information about the CAVIN family of Spartanburg Co.,
SC (or other counties of SC),Gaston Co./Iredell Co./Rowan Co./Alexander
Co/Lincoln Co. area of NC, or elsewhere. I have immediate family living
in the Spartanburg, SC area along with descendants in the Mount Holly,
Taylorsville, Hiddenite, McAdenville, Stanley, Gastonia area of NC. I
would love to have correspondence re. CAVIN's in other areas of NC/SC or

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?). He was married to
the former Miss SUSAN (SUSIE) HAYNES. Children include: ZIZA GATES

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,
