Surnames: Gallant, Penault, Smith
I am researching my family and have come to a Gallant line. there seems to be many Gallants from PEI Canada. My great-grandmother was Esther Gallant (born in North Attleboro, MA in 1903). Her parrents were Peter Gallant (born in Rustico, PEI Canada, date unknown but died in 1933) and Anna Gallant (born unknown location in 1876).

Peter's parents were Francis Gallant and Frances Penault, both of Rustico, PEI, Canada.

Anna's parent were Thomas Gallant and Julia Smith (both died in North Attleboro, MA. I do not know birth dates or locations.

Any help in filling in some blanks would be appreciated.

The original Gallant came from Amherst PEI in 1720. He was the first family to settle on the Island and all Gallants come from ancestry. His name was Michel Hache Gallant his wife was an Arsenault. They had I believe 9 children. I di a lot of research on this, there's a big monument in Amherst for people to see an the cite where the house was.

Check the info on islandregister.com and pineau.net carefully. Some of it is incorrect. These were large families whose children all had similar names, ie. Marie, Joseph, that you need to be careful. These families intermarried many times and decendants have been placed in the wrong families which is easy enough to do. Also at times the names were French another English, Pierre/Peter. This also caused errors. They are great places to start, but dont take it as gospel.
