Where is the community of Gilead Grove located?

Dear Colleagues,

I am trying to pinpoint the location of Gilead Grove, a tiny community within Napan, Northumberland County, New Brunswick. I have checked a number of sources that identify New Brunswick place names, including

1) Where is Home? New Brunswick Communities Past and Present [Provincial Archives of New Brunswick, [archives.gnb.ca] ]

2) List of New Brunswick Places
[www.johncardinal.com]

3) GeoGratis
[www.geogratis.gc.ca]

but so far I cannot find where Gilead Grove is located precisely within Napan.

The community is mentioned 8 times in the Daniel F Johnson's New Brunswick Newspaper Vital Statistics database (PANB), in connection with the JOHNSTON, JOHNSTONE, JOHNSON and SADLER families.

The spefic entry I'm interested in mentions my great grandparents:

"d. At Gilead Grove, Napan (North. Co.) age 2 mos, the infant d/o David SADLER and Elspeth SADLER."

Any ideas when Gilead Grove is?
