**This family may be incorrect.  There are pieces that fit and pieces missing.  There are 5 children of Gilbert Pitre & Marguerite Martin whose baptism records appear in the Rustico registers, so their birthdates are sourced.  Zozime was born 18 February 1866, appeared in the 1881 census age 15, and again in the 1891 census aged 23.  The 1893 marriage record states groom is Simon Peters, son of Gilbert Peters & Maggie Merton.  The 1900 MA census says Simon Peters was born Canada June 1862.  The 1911 census at Cape Breton states Simon Peters was born PEI September 1860.  The border crossing from Nova Scotia at Maine in 1912 states Samuel Peters is 38 and nearest relative is Paus Peters of Charlottetown, PEI.  The 1920 census at Everett, MA states Samuel Peters is 47 (immigrated 1890).  The children's names/ages match up, parents were Gilbert/Marguerite Martin, and brother Pacifique (common aka Paus) lived in Charlottetown in 1911.  If anyone can provide evidence pro or con for this connection I'd be very appreciative.
