The Hale Collection indicates that their children died on the years indicated, however, research indicates their children were not buried here and that those dates are more than likely birth years. Ancestry.com indicates that Pierre and Emerence were married in 1865 and immigrated to the U.S. from Canada in 1877. Therefore, their children could not have been buried in this cemetery.
