Notre Dame de l’Assomption cemetery records

    Contributed photo Pictured is the old Bishop’s Palace in Arichat which is currently being used as office space, just below Notre Dame de l’Assomption Church.

    The old cemetery is located on the north side of Route 206, directly across the road from the church. The majority of the early stones and markers are missing and this property is in very rough condition.

    The following is a transcription of all but six of the legible gravestones remaining in the oldest burying ground at Notre Dame de l’Assomption Cemetery. The six not included were to the rear of the property and inaccessible. The early death records of the Notre Dame parish may be of help in identifying other individuals whose gravestones are now missing.
