I recently received info from my aunt that my great grandmother may have been born in Placentia Bay in 1842. Based on baptismal records I found for their children, the maiden name she used in Newfoundland was listed as Catherine Keeffe.
However, when she moved down to NJ, she started using Catherine O'Keefe. My great grandfather's name was William Kennedy (1840). At some point they moved to the Conception Harbour area. They eventually moved to Perth Amboy somewhere between 1880 - 1895.
Does anyone know of any Keeffe/O'Keefe's living in Placentia Bay in the 1840s?
