I am desperately trying to find out where my great-great-grandmother came from. This French surname seems to be extremely rare in the U.S.A. And the spelling is varied.
This woman was named Lucinda Lucretia Papineau (0r other
variation), born about 1815. On later US census records, she listed her birthplace as Arkansas and Louisiana. She married William Walker, born 1812. They lived their married life in Polk county, Texas. One of their sons died in 1920 and on his death record, he listed his mother's name as Lucinda/Lucretia Papanaugh. I've found no trace of this surname in my research in the US. If anyone is familiar with this name and where in Canada they might be found, please reply. I am hoping for a breakthrough. Thank you.
