Westmorland County residents George Lund and Jane (Ibbotson)Lund had two daughters, Fanny and Ann. We know what happened to their brothers, John and George but have not determined what happened to the girls. If anyone knows, please advise.

Surnames: Lund, Ibbitson, Towse
I have discovered three family lines descended from the daughters of George Lund and Jane (Ibbitson) but am uncertain which line comes from which daughter in 2 of them. In the order they have been identified:
1. a Daniel Lund was born in Cookville in 1845; he married Amy McPhee, a local girl, in 1869 and had 7 children. It is thought that Daniel was Fanny’s son.
2. a Frances Lund, born in Canada, married John Manship and had a son James born in Machias Maine in 1855. Some of James’ descendants still in the Machias area and know the Lunds there, where George and George Jr settled.
3. a “Lund girl from Upper Sackville” married a Joseph Griffin in Boston; she returned to the area with her son Sanford who married Rose Craig about 1875 and had 3 children, Margaret, Clarence and Lillian.
Jane's stone in the Upper Sackville cemetery reads "In memory of Jane wife of George Lund Native of Yorkshire England Died Dec 15, 1878 Aged 87 yrs. Erected by James Manship & Daniel Lund Jr." James Manship and Daniel P. Lund Jr. were her grandchildren.

Do you know who Daniel's father was? It is my understanding that he may have been born out of wedlock.

I believe that Amy was the daughter of Daniel and Jane McFee.

I am a descendant of Daniel Purrington Lund, one of his son's.

My Grandmother said that I was of the MacLeod line. She said that I was the more direct line to the Hector MacLeod's, then Norman MacLeod of New Glasgow, Nova Scotia. She did not say to much more. I do not know his father's name, but I believe he was a decendant of a William MacLeod. He boarded at Loch Broom, Rosshire, Scotland. Daniel Lund may be his great-grandson.

Late response!
The parentage of Daniel Lund 1845-1919 has been a mystery for years - it was speculated that he may have been the illegitimate son of Ann Lund, Frances "Fanny" Lund's sister (Fanny was only 10 when he was born). However Daniel, and his equally mysterious brother brother Henry Alexander Lund, appear in the recently-revealed 1851 census with Ann and Fanny and their parents George and Jane (Ibbitson) Lund as orphans with the surname Towse. John Towse, who's dtr May Ann married John Lund, had one or more brothers who also came to NB: apparently one of them died and the 2 boys were taken in by George and Jane, and laer took their names. Mystery solved?

Since posting this message, much has been learned about John and Jane's offspring. Those found to date are:
1. Ruth Lund (abt 1822-1873) who married Jacob Thompson in 1840: they had 13 children, some of whom were born in the Machias area in northern Maine (Jacob married Abigail Sears after Ruth died and had 4 more children).
2. Ann Lund b. abt 1826 who moved to Calais Maine where she married Jarius Hartwell Griffin. They had at least 4 children, the youngest George "Sanford" Griffin b 1858 settled in Sackville where he married Rose Ann Craig in 1877: they had 9 children. He also married Emma Jane (Phinney)Hope in 1918.
3. George Harris Lund 1827-1902, who moved with his father to farm inland from East Machias, Maine at a place still known as "Lund Corner": he had 18 children with 3 wives: 2 grandchildren still live at the homestead.
4. Thomas Lund b 1830: no other record has been found of him: he may be the Captain Thomas Lund recorded in PEI in the mid 1850s: there are Lunds there still whose ancestors were from Yorkshire and may have been related to George.
5. Frances "Fannie" Lund b 1835: she married John Manship from England abt whom little else is known. They had at least 7 children and moved to Truemanville Maine: their descendants are recorded there and in the Amherst area.
