does anyone know anything about the family of Samuel and Mary Parkin? The children were Ann, Mary, Martha, Hannah, Anthony, and Charles, born between 1802 and 1829. Samuel's father was Robert Parkin and he was born in Nottingham, England. Ann married Sir John A. Macdonald's cousin, Roderick O'Brien who is an ancestor of my fiance, Gerry Adams. My children are Parkins from the London, Ontario area. I wonder if they are related?
