Mont Sainte-Marie Cemetery
Stanstead, Stanstead County, Quebec
Location: To reach this cemetery take Maple Street from Main Street (Dufferin) Stanstead. Continue out of town a couple of miles and the cemetery is on your right.
This Catholic cemetery has been around since the 1850s. The first burials were mostly English speaking residents of Irish descent. Today it is a mixture of French and English Catholics.
The large cemetery has a fence and gate and is kept mowed and has one paved lane. A new sign has been erected in 2010. A Columbarium has been built near the entrance. We found that many of the monuments that had accompanying flat stones inscribed with data were not kept trimmed and some were completely covered with grass and sod. We had to clear many with a shovel in order to read them. Please note it is likely that we missed some of these flat stones as we walked the cemetery.
Susan Nutbrown and I walked and read this cemetery in July and August of 2007 and made a complete recording of all legible tombstones and marker slabs.
Total records: 2,508
