*This is my cousin's line and I am going by what she told me as well as information I found on

Peter Alexander Jarvis' father was Calistus Gervais who later changed his name to Alexander Jarvis. On the 1880 census for Rogers City, Presque Isle, Michigan, he is listed as Alexandre Gervais so he has changed a part of his name by 1880. According to family members, he also changed his surname to Jarvis by the time of his death in March 1888 in Ocqueoc, Michigan.

Alexander's (Calistus) father was Jean Baptiste Gervais who was born about 1820 in Paris, France. Jean Baptiste married Marie Hauger (abt 1826- ).
