Research Notes

(1) In his unsourced FindAGrave record, his birth place is Ice Lake, Manitoulin District, Ontario[5] but his bio says Indian Lands in Quebec.
Indian Lands could be an English translation for "Bois Sauvage". This would be in today's Akwasasne Reserve, on the corner of Ontario, Quebec and New York state, outside of St-Régis village where he was baptised the next day.
(2) The reference cited for their marriage has different first names (John and Julia) and does not provide the names of the parents nor the church (St Patrick Church) mentioned.[3] (see image 3)
John Taillon married Julia Plamondon on 2 March 1840 in Hogansburg; Registre pour les Blancs et les Sauvage (Hogansburg), New York, United States.
We would like a more complete reference.
(3) Did he die in Dundee, Quebec or in its twin village of Fort Covington, New York?
The fact that he was in all canadian censuses and none of the american's suggested that he was living in Canada.
