Every time I research a property on Prince Edward Island I take notice of the property identification number (PID) - today our PID's are six or seven digits. Our family farm in Alma, settled in 1860, has a five digit PID - I always thought that was an old property number. I was surprised to see the property number for this farmstead is a four digit number - this is an old property!
I was more interested in the old barn - possibly dating to mid-late 1800's. The house I would guess to be in the 100 year old range.The barn is completely covered with cedar shingles - roof and walls. The proportions indicate a very old barn.
Meachams 1880 Atlas of Prince Edward Island shows Prospere Gallant living here with 35-acres.
Cumins 1928 Atlas of Prince Edward Island shows John DesRoches living here with 35 acres. They list his wife as being Elizabeth with the following children: Roderick, Gilbert, Delima, May, Nelson, Peter and Edwin.
The current owners live nearby - they aren't Gallant or Desroches.
