Greetings, I am a descendant of a Nancy Eastabrook/Esterbrooks (I've seen it spelled both ways)born in 1814 Carleton, New Brunswick, Canada married to an Alby Keen b. 1806 Nobleboro, Washington, Maine.
I am curious if anyone here knows anything about this Estabrook/Esterbrooks family.
Here is my pattern of descent:
Nancy Esterbrooks/Estabrook b. 1814 Carleton, New Brunswick, Canada m. Alby Keen b. 1806 Nobleboro, Washington, Maine l l l Thomas E. Keen b. 1833 St. Stephen, New Brunswick, Canada m. Susan J. Pass b. 1848 Pennsylvania l l l Gertrude (a.k.a. Amanda Gertrude) Keen b. 1879 Pennsylvania m. Charles F. Liddle b. 1877 Pennsylvania l l l Ethel Dee Liddle b. 1901 m. Paul Keen b. 1901 Illinois
Ethel and Paul are my great grandparents, Paul Keen is not of the same Keen lineage as Thomas E. and Alby, my great gramps is Penn. German with his surname originally being spelled Kuhn.
My great grandma Ethel claimed Metis (Anglo-Iroquois) ancestry, it didn't come from her fathers family as they are all traced out to Europe (her pa's family are Ulster-Scots immigrants from Co. Tyrone, Ireland who came over mid-1800's, the rest are Penn. Germans, and one Scots family).
The only gaps are in her mothers family which are the Keene/Keen-Estabrook/Esterbrooks and they being from New Brunswick and Maine respectively would have been in historical Iroquois raiding territory during Colonial times, and from what I understand there are Iroquois folks still in Canada, my uncle had mentioned some of our Metis cousins are still in Canada, but I personally do not know any names, hence why I am posting this message, to see if anyone here knows if there are any Metis Estabrook/Esterbrooks.
If anyone has any information I can be reached at email@example.com
