Searching for information on birthplace of Paul and Bridget Gilbert originally from New Brunswick Canada. They settled in Bangor, Penobscot County, Maine between 1867 and 1870. They, and their first 7 children were born in New Brunswick French Canada. In the June 1870 Penobscot County Bangor Maine Census, their 7th child, born in New Brunswick, was 3 years old, and their last and 8th child born in Bangor (my grandfather) was 3 months old. They were living on State Street in Bangor at that time. We cannot seem to locate the birth places or record of marriage of Paul or Bridget, nor birthplace's of their first 7 children.
Information is as follows from the 1870 Bangor Maine Penobscot County Census Gilbert family living on State Street in Bangor.
Paul Gilbert, Head of Household age 50, Bridget, Wife,age 43, (children born in New Brunswick Canada), Mary age 23,
Thomas age 20, Joseph age 18, Charles age 12, Peter age 9, Burnham age 7, John age 3, last and 8th child born in Bangor, Godfrey John age 3 months, (my grandfather).
Are there any Gilbert decendents of this family still living in Bangor that may have information on their exact origins in New Brunswick, and Bridgets maiden name ?
