      I do not think Twombley or variation is a French origin name.

      In the 1881 Canada Census there are Twombleys and variations in Nova
      Scotia and Ontario. None of the NS or ON people have a French sounding
      given name.

      Amos Kk was probably the Amos H found in many earlier Census.

      Your evidence leads me to think the Amos family is the correct one.
