Riviere-Ouelle Memorial Headstone: Roussel/Berube/Emond

This is one of the memorial headstones that I photographed during my genealogical vacation in Riviere-Ouelle a few years ago. It was placed there by the Association des Roussel d”Amerique in honour of Jacques Roussel (1720-1805) and his first and second wives. His wives were  Marie-Genevieve Berube (1731-1766) and Genevieve Gabrielle Emond (1735-1802). The stone also states that Jacques Roussel was from Evran in Bretagne (France). The final inscription at the bottom calls these couples : “the ancestors of the Roussels in America”.
