DINN family, especially Indian ancestry.

DINN family, Nfld. I have just found out I have DINN coming into my family from two directions...but I do not know which towns they are from.
My great-grandfather, Patrick Judge,married MARY ELLEN DINN, about 1857 and they lived at Isle aux Valen,Placentia Bay. Their children included Peter Judge,1858,who later moved to Red Island, Joseph Peter,1865,moved to Corner Brook,and my gf,William Patrick Judge,born 1870, who married Mary Joseph Pike of Salmonier in 1895 and moved to Point Verde.
On my mother's father's side, my ggf,John Gilbert Pike,married MARGARET DINN. I do not know when,but my grandmother was born in 1872 in Salmonier,the one near Placentia Bay,near St. Lawrence.
I notice that Mary Ellen is a common name in Witless Bay Dinns. However,being another rare name in Nfld.,I think probably almost all DINNS there are related...so please, does anyone have a family tree list of Dinns they can share with me from anywhere in Nfld.?
I understand that my native American ancestry came into the family via my great-grandmother,and so I assume Mary Ellen Dinn was of Indian or Inuit ancestry. Could any Dinns out there specifically give me information on this line? Thanks. Ward.
