The descendants of Owen Lavin have lived and farmed in Lissacurkia, Tibohine for over 8 generations. Prior to that  in the mid-1600s, the Lavins were 'coopers.'           (also In 1731, the Elphin Diocese published a report on the State of Popery which listed three priests for the parish of Tibohine, one who was Father Edward Lavin).

The following Lavin family may have original roots in Co Roscommon, but have only been traced back to Co Leitrim.  Bernard and Bessie were married in 1848 in Kiltoghert parish, Carrick-on-Shannon Union, Leitrim (Carrick-on-Shannon is half in Co Leitrim and half in Co Roscommon). Their first 4-5 children were born there prior to immigration to the United States between 1845-53. Charles is listed with family on 1860 Census in Elizabeth, NJ, but Irish baptism records have not been found, so perhaps he is a nephew. Their 2-year old daughter Catherine died 2 mo after daughter Bridget was born. The Potato Famine occurred in the decade of 1841-1851.

The descendants of Bernard Lavin lived in Elizabeth, New Jersey for over 4 generations, fought in the Civil War, WWI , WWII, and have been actively involved as Firefighters, Policemen and merchants. The Lavin families from Elizabeth have been communicants of St. Patrick's Church, St Michael's Church, Holy Rosary Church, Sacred Heart Church, St Genevieve's Church, Church of the Blessed Sacrament, St Catherine's Church, and members of the Young Men's Catholic Lyceum and Knights of Columbus.
