Generation Three

7. Mary3 HEPBURN (Edmund2, Alexander1) was born on 27 Feb 1827 in Musquash, Saint John Co, New Brunswick (b'date from 1901 census, Victoria Ward, Saint John). She married Joseph Daley, son of David Daley and Sarah Stanley, circa 1860. She died on 5 Oct 1919 in Saint John, Saint John Co, New Brunswick, at age 92 ("Mary Daley died of cerebral haemorrhage [sic] ". - this from the Methodist Cemetery records. Maiden name listed as Hebbern).19 She was buried on 7 Oct 1919 in Methodist Burying Ground, Saint John, Saint John Co, New Brunswick (Mary's obituary in the Saint John Globe dated Monday, 6 October 1919 tells that she died Sunday at the home of her son Henry Daley on Westmorland Road. She was born at Musquash. Records held by the Wesleyan Methodist Cemetery on Thorne Avenue, Saint John confirm her birth at Musquash as well as tell us that her father was Edmund "Hebbern" born in Ireland. For many years no sign of a Edmund Hepburn was uncovered).

Descendants of Alexander Hepburn who was supposedly born in Scotland all tell tales about "Aunt" Mary Daley. This writer began to think it was all a mistake and Mary had been a daughter of Alexander Hepburn after all. Then a passage was found in the book "The Sound of Many Waters " by Ethel Thompson [1980] which said that Edmund Hepburn who had come from Ireland had settled in Musquash in an area which became known as Hepburn's Basin. No further mention was made of him. I tried to reach the author, but to no avail. So the question is - how does Edmund Hepburn fit in? Is he another son of Alexander? Who was his wife? Other children besides Mary? With only two mentions of him - the book and her burial permit, did he die early and she was raised with Charles Hepburn and siblings? Or was Alexander actually Alexander Edmund?

Joseph DALEY was born on 9 Jul 1830 in Red Head, Saint John Co, New Brunswick (b'date from 1901 census, Victoria Ward, Saint John).
