Index: Headstones of St-Constant Cemetery

This is a selection of some of the older headstones of the Cimetière de Saint-Constant which is located not too far from where I live in Chateauguay on Montreal’s South Shore. The images will be appearing once weekly on Sundays.

I haven’t photographed all the headstones but if anyone need a particular one then I can go back and get it. Just drop me a line in the comment boxes below.

Last August Linda Groombridge contacted me because she was looking for information about her husband’s  Irish grandmother Margaret Rainey.

Margaret Rainey was Scottish – and her descendants now live in the UK – but she spent some years in Quebec and (according to family lore) she had married  a Quebec Mountie named Joseph Favreau and  then lived with her husband in the Mohawk territory of Caughnawaga (now Kahnawake). I was able to corroborate much of this family’s story including  some (Favreau) genealogical details and the fact that Joseph Adelard Favreau and Margaret Rainey did in fact  live in Kahnawake at one point, but some questions still remained.
