I have recently discovered that some of my family has gone under the name Kenna, I've been looking for KENNY --- and your messages look most promising. My brickwall/first relative is John Kenny, b. ~1795, Queens County, Ireland and arrived in Caraquet, NB in 1825 - where he appears to have just jumped ship. He married Nancy (Anne Marie) Drysdalle in 1832 and raised children John, Michael, William Patrick, Anne and a James. Whelan is also a very popular name in New Brunswick, and I am just finding that many of the setters did come from Nfld. and Quebec. Also many men left the area to work in Minnesota in late 1800's.
Others names associated in the area are Harding, Grattan, McLean and Stymiest. HELP. We might we able to find a common branch somewhere, and most willing to share.
