Seeking parents of Joseph Perry "Poirier" and Margaret Wedge "Marguerite Aucoin"

My great grandfather, Joseph Perry, born 6 Mar 1869 in Tignish, and died 24 Aug 1953 Peabody, Massachusetts. He married Barbara Richards "Richard" on 24 Jun 1895 in Westbrook, Maine. The 1900 US census shows Joseph and Barbara living on Brackett St, Westbrook, Maine with 2 children and Joseph's 2 brothers, John (born 1872) and Philip (born 1876).
His parents were Joseph Perry "Poirier" and Margaret Wedge "Marguerite Aucoin". I've been told their birth, marriage, and death records from church of St Simon and St Jude in Tignish are on microfilm.
In the 1881 Canadian census, I found Joseph Poirier, wife Marguerite, children - Henry, Joseph, John, Edina, Fidel, and Mary living in lot 2, Prince Edward Island. The ages of Joseph , John, and Fidel match the information I have for Joseph, and his two brothers, John and Philip.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.
