Surnames: Coallier dit Novion, Bissonnette
OK, I give up. I have the funeral records from Drouin for Emelie Bissonnette and her husband, Joseph Coallier dit Novion. Both of their funerals were registered at Saint-Remi-de-la-Salle, his in about 1865(?)and hers in about 1888(?). I don't have my notes here with me in Quebec, but Coallier was horribly misspelled, like Qualier or Cuillier or something like that. I got an address for St. Remi de Napierville as 840 Rue Notre Dame, C.P. 126, Qc. The cemetery is about 5 blocks away from the church. I looked all over for their headstones in the St. Remi cemetery, but didn't find them. I thought that perhaps the funeral took place at St. Remi's but the burial was elseshere. We asked the GPS to find churches nearby and it came up with Notre Dame in LaSalle, but that's across the river and seemed so far away. I even went to St. Clotilde to a cemetery there to look, in case they were buried somewhere else. I went to St. Constant to look for a cemetery but didn't find one. I was told by another source that she may have been buried in St. Constant, since she was listed on census reports as living there in about 1851. Where is the cemetery in St. Constant? I'm planning to visit Batiscan, Quebec tomorrow, as I found a cemetery on GoogleEarth at Chemin Saint-Francois-Xavier. If anyone lives near the St. Remi cemetery near Napierville would you be so kind as to look around the cemetery to see if they are indeed buried there? The rectory at St. Remi's was closed, so I couldn't check for their listings. Was it unusual in 1888 for someone to have the funeral at one church and be buried elsewhere? Any assistance is appreciated. Thank you.
