On March 16, 2015 I attended a funeral at St. Ignatus RC Church in Bedford, NS. During the luncheon following the service, I struck up a conversation with a lady about the snow storms we were having and that NFLD was getting quite a bit of snow as well. She her grandfather came from NFLD (Pools Island) and I said I did as well (Wesleyville). She said her grandfather was Karl Fisher Kean from Pool's Island (via Flowers Island). Again, I said my grandfather was Edward Kean from Greenspond (vis Flowers Island). She then put me on to the Kean Family Home Page.

So, here is our connection. Samuel Kean (1772 -1822) had several children of which 2 were Samuel Kean (jr) (1819 - 1900) and William Kean (1810- 1887). Samuel Kean (jr) , again had several children, of which was John Cull Kean (1841 - 1911). John Cull and his four oldest sons drowned in a storm of Cape Freels enroute to Flowers Island. The bodies of the deceased were buried at Cape Freels. Mrs. Kean (John Cull Keans wife) moved into Greenspond with here 2 remaining children Lewelyn and Edward (my grandfather). Both Llewelyn and Edward have family members living in Wesleyville and other areas of NL.

From the Home Page, it is my understanding that Karl Fisher Kean was the son of Fredrick Thomas Kean (1860 - 1906) who would be Edward's (my grandfather) second cousin. Again, it is my understanding that Fredrick was the son of Bengiman (1838 - 1906), who was the son of William Kean (1810-1887). William and Samuel (jr. 1819-1900) were brothers.

I think the lady I met at the church was Margret Dupuy. For more info please contact me at email: emhowse@eastlink.ca

I am the daughter of Captain Frederick Peter
House, Jr who died 2/21/2010. His father was
Peter House: born September 27, 1884 and died
in Lyndhurst, NJ on September 23, 1943. I
believe his father was Peter House who married
Mary Kean. Mildred House was in contact with
someone from Newfoundland over 20 years ago
and gathered much of this information also about
her father's family. I have enjoyed all of the
information. I continue to research to piece it all
together. Mildred passed the family Bible down to
her daughter Linda before she died. I have seen
the information. However, I did not write any of it
down. My sister Donna now has the Bible and
unfortunately I am unable to view it. I long to see
it again.
