Bio Photo I have been a resident of Sister Bay, Door County, Wisconsin for 38 years and know the northern part of the county quite well. My "Find A Grave" focus is on fulfilling photo requests in Northern Door County, including Ellison Bay, Fish Creek, Ephraim, Baileys Harbor and Sister Bay.

I am also occasionally able to fulfill requests in northern Price County, including the City of Park Falls and the Village of Fifield as well as Butternut which is located in southern Ashland County.

Please request photos by way of Find A Grave or communicate with me directly by email. I will do the best I can to fulfill your requests.

Sinerely,

Adrienne (Barbier) Trudeau (1652 - 1717)
You requested a photo for the marker of Adrienne (Barbier) Trudeau.
Here's a brief history of the catholic cemeteries in Montreal. The first catholic cemetery is situated undeneath the Pointe-à-Callière Museum in Old Montreal. No markers remain for the people buried there. Two other historical burial grounds opened in the same area were the Cimetiere de la Poudrière (corner of St-Pierre and St-Antoine, in Old Montreal) and le Cimetiere Saint-Antoine, on what is now la Place du Canada (corner of Rene-Levesque boulevard and Peel Street) across Marie-Reine-du-Monde Montreal Cathedral. Both cemeteries are now defunct, no markers stand and the remains were transported in the mid-1850 in mass bone graves, in the new Notre-Dame-des-Neiges (aka) Cote-des-Neiges Catholic Cemetery, on Mont-Royal.
Since the burial ground is instrusted to the Sulpician Brothers, owners of the Cote-des-Neiges cemetery, all the burial records are in the Notre-Dame Basilica church book.
Researchers might not expect to find a marker for people who died before the 1850's in Montreal (and in Quebec in general). The tradition of having a permanent marker was reserved to wealthy families and the permanent headstone became common at the wake of the funeral parlors business in the mid-1880's. The most affordable markers were wooden or metal crosses, which did not survive the test of time.
Regards.
