Gilbert was born between 1828 and 1830. According to the 1901 Census, Gilbert was born on 6 Jan 1830 in Prince Edward Island (probably Hope River). However, the 1911 census lists his birthdate as Jan 1828 and his age as 83. Lastly, the 1881 Census lists his age as 52 which would approximate his year of birth as 1829. 
Gilbert married his first wife, Luce Doiron, on January 25, 1853. Her name has also been spelled Lucy and Lucey.
