Sorry I didnt include the internet address-I usually do so people can check these out themselves
The 1901 and 1911 Canadian Census is free at
www.automatedgenealogy.com
Just choose the 1911 Census, then Nova Scotia, then Inverness County. You will see a row (the alphabet) that you can choose from. Choose K and when you look down you will find the name Kinnon. The name has been mis-transcribed. Clicking on the name will take you to a transcription of the page. Ordinarily there is a "split view" option at the top of that page which allows you to see the original census page but that seems to be down tonight-some technical glitch. I remember now that when I originally searched for the family, I did it from Ancestry.com which is a pay-for-view site. They had the name also mis-transcribed but as Kennan, instead of Kinnon- thats were the confusion lies. The date that they arrived in Canada in on the additional information found on the 1911 Census but you'll have to wait until they have their technical problem solved to see it on the original- it isn't included in the transcription.

Also, I think I found the birth record of your Peter
www.familysearch.org
I choose the "advanced search" option. Put in Peter Keenan; choose "birth" in the event box; Ireland in the location box and 1872 in the date. You will get a list of possibilities. The 6th or so one down in a Peter Keenan born in Dundalk, Ireland in 1872.

Let me know if you still have problems
Happy Hunting
Burdette
