My gggrandmother was Ellen Lappin b.1804 d.1873. She was the daughter of Bernard Lappin b. abt.1768 d.1847 and Bridget Rourke b. unknown. Ellen had two brothers, John and Patrick and one sister, Sarah. Ellen married my gggranfather William Hopkins b.1801 d.1888. Both my gggrandparents were born in or near Armagh, Ireland and immigrated to St. Sylvester, Lotbiniere, Canada. William and Ellen had ten children. Some of the family emigrated from Canada to New Hampshire, New York and Illinois. Another fun family fact I just remembered was my gggrandfather William's sister Sarah Hopkins married my gggrandmother Ellen's brother Patrick.
Any information on this Lappin family would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Sean Hopkins
