Hi...Interesting that you ask about Guilfoils' from PEI. My Guilfoil ancestors came to where I am in California in 1965 but were from Boston, Mass the two previous generations and my Great Grandfather previous was, I am told, from Maine....so we are getting closer to PEI as we go back. The really interesting part is that my Grandfathers wife was from PEI where the name La Blanc is well known before they changed their Surname to White. My Great grandmothe, Nora White, was a 5th or 6th generation person born on PEI. I would be a little surprised to find out there was a connection directly to the Guilfoils you speak of and my Guilfoils but who's to say...this IS a small world. I hope I have given some food for thought.
Arthur Quincy Guilfoil III (My grandfather was the III and dropped it when his father passed so you could say I am really the 5th.)
