"Susan Kinney was born in Greenfield, [New Brunswick], March 17, 1851 to John Shepherd Kinney and Sarah Crabtree. Died July 9, 1933. Married Kenneth Campbell. Their mothers were sisters. He died of consumption. In later years she married Abraham Walker, July 4, 1897." (2)
As "Susana" she appears in the 1861 Census of Canada, living with her parents and siblings in Wicklow, Carleton, New Brunswick. Note: The family name in the census is transcribed as "Kenney" and her father's middle initial as "O"--looking at the original document, it looks like "Kinney" and middle initial "S" to me. (5)
