Did you check out under Histories on our main site at WWW.STCOLUNBAN-IRISH.COM-

There seems to be a number of posts about Michael Grace there - and I think that the 2nd or 3rd one, by Kelley O'Rourke, notes that Michael died in St. Columban in 1841 and that Mary died in 1842 >

Just a thought.....

Thanks Fergus.  Yes, I did check all of those but there are some differences.  For example in "Baptisms - Deaths & Marriages St. Columban 1837 - 1900" I did not find anything on Michael.  In an e-mail from Kelley O'Rourke which I really appreciated, she had "Michael Grace (b. abt. 1763 in Ireland & died in 1841, St. Columban, Quebec) married Mary Gavin (Gordon) (b. abt. 1763, Kilkenny, Ireland & died July 22, 1842, St. Columban, Quebec)   Of course, I may have misinterpreted but I saved all I received.  Would Claude C. have any more info?  I believe Michael Grace and Mary Gavin are parents of Thomas Grace, father of Martin.  Lots of Thomas's!
Thanks for your assistance!  I'm trying to tie up some loose ends before we come to St. Columban in June.
