Joseph Frederick Julien to a Mary Ada Myatt in Dartmouth on April 12th 1920.

Joseph Frederick was a Bachelor, age 21. Occupation listed as a Locomotive Fireman. Born in Grand Desert. Son of Frederick Julien and Annie Crowell?

Mary Ada Myatt? was 17, homemaker. Born in West Chezzetcook. Daughter of Ernest Myatt, and cant make out the mother.

Both Roman Catholic, and both residing in Dartmouth.

Noted on wiki page for Grand Desert, Nova Scotia

...."Other Acadian families trace their roots to the Cape Breton Acadians who were granted permission to settle in the Chezzetcook area. The family names represented in this group are: Petipas, Roma, Bonin (Bonang), Manet, and MAYET . The Breau and Bonnevie families came from the island of Miquelon and the Julien family descends from a soldier of the Napoleonic Wars. With the signing of the Treaty of Paris (1763), the Acadian population was allowed to live in peace in Nova Scotia. Many deported Acadians were granted permission to return to Nova Scotia and their number slowly grew. There were 47 families on the Chezzetcook Inlet by 1815."

if we are talking the same family. i know some of them. i knew Fred, the stool i have is one he made later in his life before his eyesight was too bad. He lived around Kennebunkport, maine.If Fred was your grandfather, that would mean your father was either Ernest orEugene. As far as i know Ernest never had kids. So that means your father would be Eugene. That means your First name would begin with either a "P" or "B".
