Where is Ste-Edouard, Dorchester, Quebec?

Classification: Query
Surnames: Hurley, Sargent
After more than a few years, I have just discovered my Hugh Henry Hurley (b. 1858) in Ste-Edouard, Dorchester, Quebec. We knew he was "from Canada", but family legend told us it was Manitoba. He may have migrated to Manitoba, but ended up buried in Columbus, Ohio, USA. His daughter's name, our grandmother Mabelle, sounded more French, so on a whim, I plugged his name into an online index for the 1881 census in Quebec, and voila, there he was with his father's family!! A whole new generation to add to the tree. I believe Hugh Henry's parents, Hugh and Sarah Sargent, probably stayed and died in Ste-Edouard, Dorchester, Quebec.

Unfortunately, I am not familiar with researching in Canada, and wonder if anyone knows the area and if this town exists today, where it is exactly so I can try to locate it on a map? (I'm hoping to locate a cemetery, historical society, etc.)
Thank you for any help you can give.
Chris
