Liza, the birthdate you have (1878) can't be right, because his son (my grandfather) Percy was born in 1888. Here's what I know off the top of my head. Joseph J Maillet is hard to track because he always wrote different information on any government documents he had to fill out. Besides PEI, he also cited birthplaces in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. He did the same with birth dates. On an interesting note, long after the family lost track of him, he appears to have remarried. When my mother found that marriage certificate, it caused shock and disbelief among her sisters. From my childhood, the one story I remember about Joseph Maillet was that he had his grandchildren call him Uncle Joe, because he didn't think he was old enough to be a grandpa.
