Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am interested in entering and linking as many of my family members as possible for the use of future generations.

If I post any information or photos all users are free to make a copy of these and repost them to other websites.

The more information made available the better for future generations.

As another find a grave contributor stated:

Who would hold hostage - under the pretense of copyright - the photo of a grave stone?

I am particularly interested in preserving the information regarding cemeteries in the Eastern Townships of Quebec such as Ste-Agathe, St-Sylvestre, and St-Jacque-de-Leeds where many of my ancestors immigrated from Ireland. As I enter information about burials in those cemeteries please feel free to contact me to transfer your loved one to your management or to provide me with corrected information.

RE: Mitchell Family
Barb,

Please extend a very warm "Hello" to Margaret from me. We have exchanged a number of emails in the past. Margaret is an absolute peach.

I will be more than happy to update each of my family member's pages to include photos, a brief bio, and the exact location of their eternal rest.

I wish I could have met these family members while they were alive, however, I was born between 100-150 years after their own dates of birth. While my own grandmother lived until she was 98 1/2 years young, I am unaware of other family members who lived to be 100 years.

So very nice to "meet" you, Barb. (extending right hand)

Mitchell Family
The Mitchell family moved to Central Vermont (along with my Boyce relatives) and settled (primarily) in Websterville, Graniteville, East Barre, South Barre, and Barre. Many future Mitchell and Boyce family members were born in the Barre City Hospital (including me).

The Mitchell family owns the daily newspaper (The Times Argus), here, and I am one of the last Boyce family members to have lived in Barre. My grandfather's family (his grandaunt, Anna Boyce Camden, is buried in Saint-Patrick's Cemetery -- now known as Saint-Patrice -- along with her husband Patrick Camden and several members of their family).

Many Boyce family members were buried in the following Catholic cemeteries in the surrounding communities of Saint-Sylvestre, Sainte-Agathe, Saint-Elzear, Sainte-Marie, Saint Jacques-de-Leeds, Thetford Mines, the Broughtons, etc. We were some of the original settlers of that region, and Steve Cameron was instrumental in raising a Celtic Cross in Saint-Agathe to commemorate these early and 1st settlers of this region. At one time, the Boyce families harbored more than 130 along six-ten adjoining farms in the community of Saint-Olivier (now just known as the Saint-Olivier Range) in the town of Saint-Elzear.

Many of my Boyce, Camden, Ogle, Coarr, Gagne, Poulin, Downey, Donohoe (Donahue), Reid, Gould, Loughry (sometimes spelled as Loughrey, Laughrea, Lowry, Loghry, etc), Connor (O'Connor), McGee, McCaffrey, and several others who were buried, but whose gravestones or headstones were removed to enable the resale of the burial plot by the Catholic church. Thus, you won't find many of our gravestones or headstones (monuments) remaining, unfortunately.

So nice to meet you, here, and let me know if you would like birth records, death records, marriage records, etc. I, even, have a number of photos as well.

Take care,

Tom Boyce
Colchester, VT (currently)

RE: Luta Webster
You are welcome. That cemetery is not well marked and it took me quite sometime to locate Luta, but I persisted!

RE: Margaret Moore Keller
There is no inscription for Margaret. When I checked for the location the burial date was listed as 5 Jan 1925. I added this to the caption. If you still think it is wrong , I will delete it. I added the photo for Mary R. Keller.

Keller at St. Boniface
I posted a photo for Keller today. Also on the stone was an inscription for Mary R. Keller d. 1901. If you create a memorial, I will post the photo.

Changes have been made to the memorial. Would you wish to take over management of this?
