“His Excellency Lord Cavanaugh”

Cavanaugh Coat of Arms,jpeg

Family records indicate this was quite possibly the original “Peter Cavanaugh” (my Great-Grandfather) , who was known to head 20 miles south from Fulton to the fair city of Syracuse, where he would spend much time and treasure indulging in various pleasurable pursuits while consuming copious quantities of “The Holy Water.”

And telling tales. It is said he was given to “great flights of fancy.”

I am passionately persuaded this was my most recent incarnation.
