I have tried for 5 years to find out where my gg gf John Kennedy and his son, my g gf, William (1840 - 31 Mar 1927,) were born. On William's death certificate it states he was born in Nfld, and so was his father John. However, I cannot find them anywhere.
I keep coming back to an 1860 Canadian Census for Lower Canada East in the township of Douglas in the county of Gaspé. It lists a John Kennedy (b 1816) and his son William Kennedy (b 1840) who were fishermen. The birthdates are about right for my Kennedy's. I beginning to wonder if is possible that William Kennedy eventually went to Cat's Cove, Nfld, and started his family there.
Does anyone know anything about the Gaspé Kennedy's?
