Ottawa area Grave Markers Site
« on: April 04, 2006, 10:47:53 AM »

Jeff Legault sent me some interesting information about a Web Site that highlights Tombstones in the Ottawa area. If you visit this site, particularly the Ottawa West section, you will find many names like Casey, Whelan etc. that are very similiar to the names of St. Columban settlers. Not sure, of course, if these individuals are related to the St. Columban settlers, but with some migration from St. Columban to the Ottawa area, it is certainly a possibility. If you would like to check it out, the site address is:-

I also noticed there's a Sister St. Columban Cemetery in Quinneville, Quebec full of Irish names. Quinneville is just north of Ottawa.
