Note: The birth of George Giles is recorded as 1870 at Pool's Cove. However, his death record in 1951 gives his age as 70, which would mean he was born in 1881. George Giles, of Joseph, was supposedly married to Alvina/Elvina. Stonepics records list George Giles Bambury, who died in 1951 and is buried at Pool's Cove along with Martha E. Was Alvina/Elvina's full name Martha E.? Did George Giles and his wife have a daughter named Martha E. that birth records have not yet been found for? Or did George Giles marry a second time? Ages in death records were often in error by several years. In 1935 only daughter Ethel was living at home with her father. George was a Carpenter, doing odd jobs.
