Searching for descendants of BEST family, Magdalen Islands

Robert Best was apparently the sole survivor of a shipwreck in late 1871 on the Magdalen Islands, possibly the PERI.

He was rescued by islanders and later married Berthinia Rankin in 1875. I believe that he and Bertinia had at least six children. I have made contact with some descendants of his son Eldred and daughter Vera Brenton. I was wondering whether there are any other descendants, possibly still residing in the Magdalen Islands.

My great-grandmother, Jane Best, was Robert Best's sister.
