As I have been searching, I found the parents of Joseph Gallant (1854).His parents were Damien Gallant (born Oct 27, 1830 in PEI/died May 21, 1902 in Coal Branch, NB) and Daphne (Dauphine) Bernard (born July 6, 1830 in Egmot Bay, PEI/died Dept 4, 1915 in Coal Branch, NB).
As well, I have been searching for Joseph Gallant (b. 1854 son of Joseph and Julia).In the 1911 census, his wife is listed as May, but I have found baptisimal records listing Mary White as the mother of the first child (Joseph Cyrus b. Dec 25, 1905 in Summerside, PEI) and Mary Wedge listed as the mother of the next four children (Violet Cecily, Raymond Alfred, Benjamin Albert and Sarah Elizabeth - all born in Summerside, PEI).I am trying determine if this was a mistake in the record, and Mary Wedge is the mother of all 5 children, or if there were two marriages.In the 1901 census, Mary ? is listed as being born in 1887.I have found two mary Wedge's born in PEI in 1886, and a Mary White born in PEI in 1887.
Any help you can offer in untangling this family web would be greatly appreciated.I am especially interested in primary sources, but am having difficulty locating any (especially marriages in PEI).
