Grave Markers in St. Columban

After many months of research, by Kelley O'Rourke, we will soon be posting a great deal more information here about the Irish settlers that were buried in The St. Columban Cemetery. Check out the first of this research under Photos and Inscriptions of Broken Grave Markers below.

Note: It is important to note that the birth dates and death dates can vary two to three days because often the baptismal day and burial day are recorded rather than the actual birth date and day of death.  The only sure way of verifying is to check the original document.

Please contact: kelley.orourke@videotron.ca  we can check our database for you.
