I am looking for any information on Joseph Young born August 13, 1859(maybe 1856). He is my gr gr grand father and he told my grand mother that he was born in Green Island Great Britain but he also said he came here from Canada.He married a Mrs.Mary J(Jeanette)Rook)Kenniston in Phippsburg,Maine USA in1878. She was considerably older than he, she was born in1848, and had been married previously(no known children). They lived at Popham Maine on their farm (land inher from her father(Rook)).He died there Jan. 4,1938. How can I find out his parentage and lineage? Where is "Green Island"? Please help me find him. Thanks .

Any reason to suspect a connection with Kent County, Ontario??

Green Island, Great Britain ???

Might that be the Emerald Isle, United Kingdom? (Ireland)

Have you obtained a copy of their marriage certificate?
Have you obtained a copy of his obituary (and of his death registration)?
Have you located him in any Census that might give "place of birth"?

These might help confirm his place of birth or, possibly, even of his parentage.
