I was wondering, if anyone knew if there was a web site out there that gave a list of names of the St-Joseph's Catholic church cemetery in Huntingdon Quebec. I have been searching for days, but haven't found a good web site yet??!!

I know the person who manages the Huntingdon GenWeb and takes the pictures for the cemetery pages. He has not photographed the St-Joseph cemeteries (there are 2) nor the St-Anicet or Hemmingford RC cemeteries.

The old St-Joseph's cemetery is located behind the church and has about 50-60 stones remaining. It was replaced by the new cemetery beside the church which was started in the early 1900s and is very large.

I heard a report of someone who wanted to document the cemeteries but to the best of my Knowledge nothing has been done yet. There is probably burial records in the hands of the cemetery committee but they have not been published AFAIK.

Hi Burt,

I actually went to St-Joseph's church over the weekend to get some of the pictures that I needed. I was only able to go to the "new" cemetery; the old one behind the church was locked?! From what I could see, that cemetery is in real bad shape! Many broken and fallen stones. I went and knocked at the office door to get information on the burials there, but no one answered.
I was thinking of calling the office, maybe I would get better luck that way?!

Hopefully those burial records will surface soon.

Yes, I would recommend calling the diocese to try and locate more information. I understand that a card index to the cemetery was prepared by the resident priest a few years ago. I was told that the priest was very helpful. With the reduction of Catholic Churches in the area, I can't promise that remains the case.

Caleigh: I just today discovered that my husband's great grandmother (and possibly great grandfather) are buried at St. Joseph's. I would love to hear anything you learn if you do call! Patricia (re: Mary Caveny Donahue d:9 Jul 1892)

I'm also interested in finding Donahue burials in the old St. Joseph Cemetary. Margaret Donahue was buried in 1892 next to her husband John who died in the 1860's. Any new info on getting information?

Your John Donahue is the brother of my Thomas Terrance Donahue, Sr. Their father, James Donahue, came to Quebec from County Meath Ireland, but that's about all I have. I believe that James, his wife Elizabeth, and son Thomas Terrance, Sr. may all be buried in the old cemetary at St. Joseph's Church, which may be in disrepair. Thomas Terrance's son Peter and his brother Thomas Terrance, Jr., moved down to Idaho in 1880, and there are Doanhues in that area now (Mackay, ID). Patty cowpattymc@aol.com

Dont know, but Ancestry.com carries a site for vital records of St-Joseph: "Quebec, Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1967"?

Surnames: Donahoe/Dunahoe/Danohoe/Donahue
Thos Donahoe 1818-1896/ Mary Caveney 1823-1892 are my gg-grandparents (Elizabeth Cain 1775-1866; my ggg-grandmother). Matriarch-Elizabeth and four sons; James, Daniel, John and Thomas, and daughter Mary (Kelly) begin appearing in 'Lower-Canada' records circa 1832-3. From the 1852 census onwards, the record is fairly well documented (listed in 1881 census as 'Dunahoe'). Prior to ~1833, I have no knowledge re: ship lists or residency in Ireland. James Sr? (husband to Liz Cain); I have no definite record of this ancestor. Her son, James, is frequently confused as the 'husband'.

I guess your Peter 1859-? and Tom Jr 1855-1923(Idaho)would be my gg-uncles... Their youngest brother, Joseph 1861-1903, buried Frenchtown, Montana, is my great-grandfather. My late father and I located the cemetery and marble marker in 1987. We were planning a subsequent motor trip to Huntingdon, Quebec to scout out church records/cemeteries but never followed through. My father just missed the computer internet age, and I can only imagine how thrilled he would have been to partake in online genealogy.
