This message thread is very interesting and exciting for me. I must have several Gonthier ancestors buried at St-Gervais, since my family appears in the parish records from about 1780 until 1848. In 1848 my ancestors moved to St-Jean-sur-Richelieu and became Gauthiers. My Gonthier ancestors likely buried in St-Gervais are:
Joseph Marie BERNARD dit GONTHIER, died unknown.
- married Marguerite LARRIVÉE on 2 Mar 1772 in Saint-Michel Ladurantaye.
Marguerite LARRIVÉE, died 31 May 1818 St-Gervais.
Joseph GONTHIER dit BERNARD, died 22 Jan 1848 St-Gervais.
- married Marie FRADET on 21 Aug 1797 in Saint-Charles, Bellechasse.
Marie FRADET, died 6 May 1847 St-Gervais.
There are also children of these families buried at St-Gervais.
If you are willing during your visit to the St-Gervais cemetery next summer, would you notice any Gonthier or Bernard graves as you walk through, and would you take a picture for me? If it is helpful I will write to the cemetery manager asking for grave locations.
Thanks, and regards,
