Dates of existence
Lavinia Akerly lived in the parish of Wickham in Queens County, New Brunswick. As a single woman, she delivered a bastard child in 1868 and alleged that William Keleher was the father. She applied to the overseers for the poor, fearing that she would be unable to support the child. They prepared to bring charges against Keleher.
In 1869, his brother, James Keleher, a mail contractor, agreed to pay Lavinia $60 if she would agree to withdraw all other claims against William and refuse to help the overseers of the poor charge him for child support. Her brothers, Adam Akerly and Amos Akerly of Wickham, both farmers, were bound to the same conditions. Lavinia does not appear in the 1861 census and neither she nor her child appear in the 1871 census.
