If you have any connections to the above couple I would be very grateful to hear from you. Have no info at all on Kenneth, other than he was dead by 1881; married Rebecca JENKINS c1858/59. They had 5 children, John, George, Mary Jane, Margaret and Elinor. Mary Jane is my great-grandmother. All appear in the 1881 census for Charlottetown.
Rebecca is a descendant of Nicholas Henckell/Henckle JENKINS. We have always understood, Rebecca descended via his first wife, Elizabeth EDWARDS, of Manhattan NY [married c1785 +/-], who it is believed died prior to him and their [2-3] children arriving in PEI. Story came down through my grandmother, who was Mary Jane MATHE(W)SON's daughter & born in 1893.
Hope this rings some bells. My grandmother kept in touch with her JENKINS relatives, on PEI, until her death in 1951. Rest of family gradually lost contact with them, unfortunately. Hope I can find at least one again! but am most eager to learn more of Kenneth MATHE(W)SON.
Cheers ... Toni
