Caught your post re Mailloux living in St Johnsbury Vermont and Manchester New Hampshire. I am trying to locate my Caron ancestors, I believe that I have found a related family living in Derby Vermont in the late 1800s and early 1900s. This particular Caron seems to be related to a line that married an Adeline Mailloux at Manchester NH in 1883. I also know that there was a Joseph Mailloux living in PA in 1899 who is also related to my line but I haven't managed to find out exactly what the connection is yet.
My Caron became Carrow in the US, they lived at Berkshire VT and then around Jay VT. From your dates I would say that your grandfather was born in the late 1870s.
I would really like to hear from you. If you like you can email me on either email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
