Re: Lepine in USA

Good morning!

Mathew Kennedy (my g.g. grandfather)
born c. 1795, Labrador
married c. 1828, to: Suzanne Lepine, possibly Ste. Antoine sur Richelieu, Quebec.
They had:

Suzanne: born c. 1829 and
married: Felix Jodoin, 14 apr 1856
William: born c. 1831
John: born c. 1836
Henry Mathias: born c. 1841(my g.grandfather)
Maria: born c. 1842
Ellenora: born c. 1844
Clarissa: born c. 1847

What I suspect is that Mathew Kennedy who live in Ste Augustine later in life, worked there, he and his brother Andrew (who was married to : Catherine Wilshire, an Inuit) were trappers, hunters, etc. They were quite wealthy for the time and place in which they lived.

The children I believe were born between Ste Antoine sur Richelieu and Ste Augustine. Some later removed onto Nova Scotia and other parts. For example.
According to 1871 Census, Queens Co. N.S.:
Suzanne (Lepine) Kennedy was living with her daughter Ellenora (Kennedy) Gold and her husband William Gold in Liverpool , N.S..
They were living in the house of William's parents; Thomas and Annie Gold. Susanah Kennedy (a.k.a. Suzanne (Lepine) Kennedy was listed as age 60, widow) also living in the same household was a widow named Mercy Dexter.

I don't know if there is a connection to your Dexters or not, but I do know that my g.grandfather Henry Mathias Kennedy who married Elizabeth Smith (1871, Liverpool) she has Dexter's in her family.

Well take a look and see if this is of any help. And if anyone can help me I am stuck on my Suzanne Lepine who married Mathew (or Mathias Kennedy) around 1828, possibly Ste Antoine sur Richelieu, and had the above mentioned children I would appreciate your assistance. Also I suspect that she died and was buried in Nova Scotia, possibly Liverpool (Queens County) sometime after 1871
She would be listed in all likelihood as Susannah Kennedy. My best to all!

Regards, John Kennedy Mc Keown.
