Bio and Links
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.

Thomas Hayot & Jeanne Boucher
FYI: Thomas Hayot (154821160) died most likely around 1673. He married again in late 1670 to a Barbe Raveau and they were mentioned in two notary transactions dated 4 Dec 1670 & 8 Sep 1673. There is no information regarding his death/burial.
Jeanne Boucher (155574527) made her last will and testament on 14 Jan 1670. The exact date of her death/burial is unknown.
I do not know where you are getting your information from for your memorials but many of them are incorrect. I highly suggest that you check reliable sources such as Fichier Origine or PRDH.
Thank you,

Louis Houde & Madeleine Boucher
Hi Robert,
I was wondering where you got the death/burial information for Louis Houde (153846019) and his wife, Madeleine Boucher (154840580). From every source I have seen, they moved to Sainte Croix in Lotbiniere to a larger farm to accommodate their large family. I read that Louis Houde donated the land for the first church in Ste-Croix. The last known document was an inventory dated October 28, 1709. It is believed that Louis died sometime in 1712 (date unknown) most likely in Ste-Croix. It is also believed that his wife died several years later (date unknown) perhaps in Ste-Croix or maybe she moved in with one of her children at another location. Just curious as to the dates and burials you have listed for these two ancestors of mine. Thanks again for all your work,
P.S. There is no accent on the "e" in Houde.

Looking for Ancestry Info
I'm looking for any Ancestry info on my Great Grandmother Marie Madeleine Loiseau LaChance dit Pepin Grave Memorial# 161563584. or her parents or daughter Marie. I have been told by both my father and Aunt that she was Abenaki and I am trying to find any records in Canada to this. So far I have not had any luck. I know my Grandmother spent her childhood in a orphanage growing up in Ham Sud when Indian children where taken to be educated. If you can help, I would greatly appreciate it. Being disabled veteran now, I'd go to Canada myself but.....So thank you. Craig Martin

Is there a cemetery on or near this hospital and why would they say a=she was buried at a Historic Hospital? Any help in understanding this matter would be very much appreciated. D.

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!!!

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!

Memorial # 155000713
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.
