There was a John B. Moisan living in 1910 in Manistee, Michigan:
John B. Moisan83b. 1827 Can-Eng. Elise Moisan75b. 1835 Can-Eng.
They were living with their married daughter:
Joseph St. Amond60b. 1842 Can-Eng Elise St. Amond56b. 1854 Can-Eng
And in 1920 & 1930 Elise Moisan is living with her married daughter Georgiana, age 70 b. 1860 Canada married to George H. Bureau.
This may be Helen's parents in 1900:
1900 United States Federal Census about John B Moisen Name: John B Moisen Age: 72 Birth Date: Dec 1827 Birthplace: Canada Fr [Canada French] Home in 1900: Manistee Ward 3, Manistee, Michigan [Manistee] Race: White Gender: Male Immigration Year: 1880 Relation to Head of House: Head Marital Status: Married Spouse's Name: Elizabeth Moisen Marriage Year: 1853 Years Married: 47 Father's Birthplace: Canada Fr Mother's Birthplace: Canada Fr Household Members: Name Age John B Moisen 72b.

I think this is the Moison family in 1871:
1871 Census of Canada about John Bathust Moizon Name: John Bathust Moizon Gender: Male Age: 43 Birth Year: abt 1828 Birth Place: Quebec Marital Status: Married Religion: Catholic Origin: French Province: Ontario District: Renfrew North District Number: 82 Subdistrict: Pembroke Subdistrict Number: d Household Members: Name Age John Bathust Moizon43b. 1828 Quebec; moginsine maker Eliza Moizon 35 -wife- b. 1836 Que. Eliza Moizon 17b. 1854 Ontario Melie Moizon 15b. 1856 Ont. Adeline Moizon 13b. 1858 Ont. Georgeine Moizon11b. 1860 Ont. Josephine Moizon9b. 1862 Ont. Ellen Moizon 7b. 1864 Ont. ** Angeline Moizon5b. 1866 Ont. Joseph Moizon 7 mon. b. Sep 1870 Ont.
Since no parents for George are listed in any of these records we have to rely elsewhere.In a search for George Baribeau, b. 1863 Canada in the 1881 Census, I found one possibility:
1881 Census of Canada about George Baribeau Name: George Baribeau Gender: Male Age: 19 Birth Year: 1862 Birthplace: Quebec Religion: Catholic Nationality: French Occupation: Farmer Province: Quebec District Number: 85 District: Maskinongé Sub-District Number: F Subdistrict: St Léon Division: 2 Household Members: Name Age George Baribeau 45b. 1836 Quebec; farmer Flavie Allard 43 -wife- b. 1838 Que. Joseph Baribeau 23b. 1858 Que.; farmer George Baribeau 19b. 1862 Que.; farmer ** Edouard Baribeau 14b. 1867 Que. Hormidas Baribeau 11b. 1870 Que. Denis Baribeau 4b. 1877 Que. Eliza Baribeau 16b. 1865 Que. Edouardina Baribeau 9b. 1872 Que. Pamela Baribeau 7b. 1874 Que.
Unfortunately their son George Baribeau m. Judith St-Pierre on 18 Aug 1885 St-Léon-Le-Grand (Maskinongé), Quebec.The good news is that we can rule out this family as yours.
There was also this George Baribeau in the 1871 Canadian Census:
1871 Census of Canada about George Baribeau Name: George Baribeau Gender: Male Age: 8 Birth Year: abt 1863 Birth Place: Quebec Religion: C Origin: French Province: Quebec District: Champlain North District Number: 133 Subdistrict: St Tite Subdistrict Number: d Household Members: Name Age Ildevert Baribeau 18b. 1853 Que.; farmer Uldorie Baribeau 16b. 1855 Que.; farmer Virginie Baribeau 14b. 1857 Que. Evéline Baribeau 12b. 1859 Que. Philoméne Baribeau 10b. 1861 Que. George Baribeau 8b. 1863 Que.
They are living in a household with no parents.I suspect they are all siblings.Here is the family in 1861:
1861 Census of Canada about Virginie Baribeau Name: Virginie Baribeau Gender: Female Age: 4 Birth Year: 1857 Birthplace: Lower Canada Home in 1861: Champlain, Canada East Religion: C. R. Household Members: Name Age Pierre Baribeau30b. 1831 Que. ; farmer Zoe Bedard30 -wife- b. 1831 Que. Ulderic Baribeau6b. 1855 Que. Virginie Baribeau4b. 1857 Que. Eveline Baribeau2b. 1859 Que. Philomene Baribeau1b. 1860 Que.
Here is the baptism for their son, George from the Quebec, Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1967:
George Baribeau, b. 13 Dec 1862 St-Stanislas (Champlain), Quebec, son of Pierre Baribeau & Zoe Bedard
His father Pierre died in 1869:
Pierre Baribeau, d. 8 Dec, bur. 10 Dec 1869 St-Tite, Laviolette County, Quebec, husband of Zoe Bedard.
Their son, Joseph, died a few days later:
Joseph Baribeau, d. 14 Dec, bur 16 Dec 1869 St-Tite, son of the deceased Pierre Baribeau & Zoe Bedard.
His mother died the following year:
Zoe Bedard, d. 30 Apr, bur 2 May 1870 St-Tite, age 39, wife of deceased Pierre Baribeau
So by 1871 George is an orphan, which may explain why he may have not remembered the names of his parents.I can't prove that he is your George Baribeau, but it's a possibility.By 1881 only Ulderic Baribeau & his sister Eveline are living together in St. Tite.
