Pepin and its assorted spellings
The following queries came to me through email from an assortment of places, including but not limited to, the METIS mailing list, the QUEBEC mailing list, the INTERNATIONAL BLACKSHEEP SOCIETY of GENEALOGISTS mailing list, MISSING LINKS newsletter, and the MY GENFORUM website. Some are as I received them, others are a combination of more than one email, condensed to (hopefully) best present the information the individual has.
Some of the following individuals have turned out to be my cousins, but the rest, well, maybe they're yours. I've made each person's email address a clickable email link -- with their permission -- so if they look like kin to you, drop'em email.
If you have some pesky Pepins, tell me about'em.
If you descend from Guillaume Pepin, and/or have some Lafond ancestors, you'll want to check out The Association des familles Pepin Inc's Pepin Association web site. Their e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org

I can`t get any farther back and have worked on this for 20 yrs. If you can help please do.
I would be interested if you have any evidence that the name Pippett was derived from Pepan

I have been trying to find out any information on an Ester Pepin born ? probably in Que , married Pierre Cadotte (b 1777) in St. Luc, Quebec, on January 21, 1822. They lived on Wolfe Island, Ontario (in the St. Lawrence River. They had 6 children (my husband is descended from their son Joseph Cadotte) and after Pierre died, Ester remarried John Salway of Wolfe Island. Thanks for you help!

I'm searching for Stephen Pepin, b 1863 in (Shotogay, Chautauqua, Schoughticoke?), New York. Married Alice Lucinda Cantrell, b Dade co, Missouri. They settled in New Mexico and he died about 1898 to 1904. Thanks, I am really stuck with Stephen, who was my great grandfather. I can't seem to link him to any other Pepin.

Hello Lisa! I found your site interesting. I too am a direct descendant of Pepins. My maternal grandmother was a Pepin. I didn't realize there were so many different spellings. I've gotten to the earliest Pepin so far Jean (Baptiste?) Pepin circa 1630's married to a Jeanne Dumont - from France. From Jean it goes to son Robert Pepin, to Jean Pepin again, to Louis and finally to a Louis Etienne Pepin, born 6/27/1737 Yamaska, Quebec. He married a Jeanne McClure on 5/25/1761. I'm stuck on the McClure family. Have Jeanne's parents - John McClure and Jane Finn. I'm stuck here. Have you come across these names? Also if you need more Pepin info, it's yours just ask. Hope to hear from you soon.

Not sure where the link might be but right now the trail seems to lead back to Yamaska, Quebec.
My wife does most all the genealogy work and research I just supply the family name. We just got back from a small family reunion in Minnesota and while we were there we obtained some additional information to possibly add to our family line.
My Great-great-grandfather was Antoine Pepin, born in Canada in 1791 and migrated to Minnesota in the 1820's by way of the Red River Settlement and the Hudson Bay Company. The new information we received has added three more generations back from him. The information has not been verified by my wife yet so I may be jumping out of line a bit. The only certainty is my Gr-Gr-grandfather and his history since arriving in Minnesota.
The information we received shows my Gr-Gr-Grandfather being born in Yamaska Quebec in 1791 and list him as Antoine Franciose Pepin, son of Antoine Pepin and Charlotte Desrosiera. Antoine is shown to have been born in 1769 in Yamaska to Louis Etienne Pepin and Jeanne McClure. Louis Etienne is shone to have been born in 1737 in Quebec to Louis Pepin and Marie Madelin Martin Dit Jolie. And Louis Pepin is shown to have been born in 1702 in Charlesborg, Quebec
This is where the information stopped.
As I stated at the beginning I am not sure if this links us up but there are a lot of similarities in your line and mine.
Looking for Louis
T. D. Papin m 1864/66 in Canada to Virginia Delcourt.
Thanks very much,
I have a few Pepin's
and was wondering if they match yours.
Is this Pepin also
a version of Pippen?
From: Aaron & Tani
On the Peppin's I don't
have a lot of information. I have just a name of the girl, Evelyn
Peppin. She married a Edward Kowalski. I have all kinds of
information on him but none on her...I wish that I had more and that I
could make some kind of connection but alas I have not been that lucky.
