Peter KEHOE and Sarah WHITE
Ireland to Quinnville, (Gatineau), Quebec, c. 1842


New May 4, 2010:

Hi Al,
 
I've found a Peter Kehoe family, this time in Quinnville (is that Gatineau Pointe?). I don't know if this Peter was related to 
those other Wicklow Kehoes who came to Bytown in the 1840s, but Peter was a name the Clonmore parish Kehoes favoured.
 
Maybe someone out there will have the answer to that.
