Title: Mary Ellen or Ellen Maxwell Cavanaugh

Looking for a Mary Ellen or Ellen Maxwell.  She was supposedly born in Scotland.  Married a William Cavanaugh/Cavenaugh, but have no date or place.  May have married in Canada.  Moved to Iowa, then Michigan.  Specifically looking for my Grandmother Nellie Cavanaugh, who is shown in the 1880 Census as 1 yr old, in Michigan, Oceana County, Pentwater.  The Census shows her mother as Ellen and a distant relative mentioned the name of Maxwell.  Cannot find any other information on the family until 1900 when Nellie marries my Grandfather, George M. Clifton.  Does anyone have any of these names in their history.  Have been at a brick wall for several years.
