William Harkness

Though the original records is in handwritten French, the gist of it is that on 29 June 1856, Rosalie Harkenss, daughter of William Harkness and a Kwantlen woman, was baptized at Fort Langley by one Father Lootens. Rosalie's godfather was Etienne Pepin.

It should be noted that in the original:

  • William's last name appears to be spelled "Harkenem"; Father Lootens' handwriting is a little tricky to read in some spots.
  • Rosalie's mother is recorded as "u'une femme Quslen"
  • Etienne is recorded as "Magice (Pepin)"
