Bio Photo Family tree and cemetery researcher for my own Comeau - Touchette - Henley - Deschenes - Spoor - Gauthier - Brault - Hade family. Then in turn for all my niblings: Saint Andre - Woodbury - Snow - Haney - Cox - Charron - Barthelette - Sobon - Fusari. Also, for my grand niblings: Cardinal - Omdal - Poljacik - Williams.

Any cemetery photograph that I have posted is available for use for genealogical reasons. Credit me as Robert Comeau at findagrave. Normally only one side of a stone is shown for one person. The spouse of that person and their children would have the other sides.

The following cemetery pages on FindaGrave have been created by me. It you know more information about the cemetery history, its geographic location, or pictures, then write to me. Most are memorial sites or churchyards in Massachusetts or small parish cemeteries in Quebec Province.

Alexandre Dubé
Your Memorial #152154557
The date of death of Alexandre Dubé is not march 1, 1747. This date is his father's death date. Alexandre death date is october 4th, 1782. I got the burial paper if you want it. It is said he was from Rivière-Ouelle and was buried by the parish priest of Ste-Anne-de-la-Pocatière. The name of the cimetary is not cited. So, was is buried in La pocatière or Rivière-Ouelle? I can't say. I'll try to find out.

Just wondering if you have any documentation on one of my ancestors Rene Rimbault, 1616-1709. He lived and died in Port Royal, Nova Scotia and is buried in the Garrison Graveyard. How do we know that he was buried there for sure other than the fact that he lived there? Thank you.

Louise (Eliza) & Matilda Payette
I had no idea until today that my young cousins were two of the unfortunate that died in the Precious Blood Church fire. So sad!!! Their dad, Pascal Payette is buried in South Hadley Falls but no idea what cemetery yet. I've been trying to find my aunt, Lucile (Morin) Payette but the last time she is shown in the Holyoke, MA directory is 1901. How devastating it must have been for her to lose all three of her children. Her first born, died in 1865 and then her remaining two daughters at the same time in 1875. Breaks my heart!!!

Hi Robert. I see you allow use of your photos. I am going to use whatever Stebbins family headstone photos you have to put on my tree. I will credit you as the photographer and from Find a Grave.

Memorial # 153274173
His correct name was Jean Gélineau dit Gélinas. He and his wife separated in August 1717 and he went to live with his son, Etienne. No death or burial information is known.

Pierre Richaume (c1636-1688)
I believe the above dates are correct for my ancestor Pierre Richaume (son of Simon Richaume dit Petrus - not Petras - means "rock" in Latin like Peter in Scripture). I have his death as 1 Mar 1688 in Repentigny Québec) where his daughter Marthe Monin was living at the time. Probably this info will appear in the U of Montreal material online- I do not have the exact citation). The Pierre Richaume d 21 Apr 1713 in Montréal was the 1st {Pierre's son Jacques Pierre). He evidently used Pierre as his "operative" name once he became the only male descendant of the family). My favorite Richaume was Marie Josephte Richaume,dau of Pierre b1694- son of Jacques Pierre). This Pierre was an early settler/trader/explorer in Louisiana but died young in 1727. He & wife Jeanne Maroye had one child, Marie Josephte, whose life fairly parallels the history of LA for much of the 18th Century. She died in Opelousas LA, the matriarch & co=founder of 2 large Louisiana clans: Soileau & Marcantel!

I tried numerous times to send an edit message for this memorial but the "I'm not a robot" is not working.
Just wanted you to know that the death date and burial place are incorrect. She died on Feb. 18, 1741 and was buried the next day at Saint Joachim in Pointe-Claire, Montreal. The cemetery is listed as "Jardin du Souvenir". This information is confirmed by PRDH.
Thanks for all your work,

The records at Saint-Joseph-de-Chambly
Did some further research and think I found the reason the page numbers are out of order. At that time the parish at Saint-Mathias was called l'Immaculee Conception de la Sainte-Vierge a la Pointe Olivier (now Rouville), and the priest was Michel LeVasseur. The priest at Saint-Joseph-de-Chambly was Fr. Carpentier. For some reason the registers are combined in Saint-Joseph-de-Chambly. In 1746 (Baptêmes, mariages, sépultures 1727-1765 > image 190) Fr. LeVasseur wrote out the name of the parish in each entry, and his name is written in the top left hand corner of each page. I think if you see his name written on the pages that seem out of order, like Jean Besset's, it means they are from l'Immaculee Conception and not Saint-Joseph-de-Chambly. Just checked Jean's daughter Marie Josephe's burial and will be moving her to Saint-Mathias.

If you don't have Jean's baptism record, it's in the register of Sainte-Famille-de-Boucherville. He was baptized at Fort Saint-Louis.

Jean Besset's burial place
Just wanted to let you know I'm not questioning where you have him buried, just the date. A lot of the priests went to more than one parish, then wrote the information in the register of their "home" parish when they got back. Sometimes there are multiple pages from other places (Saint-Joseph-de-Carlton comes to mind in the years the Acadians were scattered), and the only way you can tell is if you find the page where the priest mentions that the following entries are from a different place.

RE: Jean Besset
The images on familysearch for Saint-Joseph-de-Chambly for that time period are a bit of a mess. It looks like the pages were loose and fell out of the register, and they didn't reassemble them in the proper order. Familysearch also changed the way the Quebec Catholic Parish Registers were formatted on July 16, 2014, so any sources you listed for that database before then need to be double checked.

On the image that contains Jean's burial record (Chambly > Saint-Joseph-de-Chambly > Baptêmes, mariages, sépultures 1727-1765 > image 229), the left page of the image is from late August 1751. You'll find Jean's record for May 8, 1751 on the right page of the image, the second entry down from the top of the page. He's also listed in the index Chambly > Saint-Joseph-de-Chambly > Index des mariages, sépultures 1707-1876 > image 7
