Buckingham, Quebec -- Church Street Cemetery and Historical Site
A Memorial by Mr. William J. Lawlis




November 20, 2009:

Al

In 1991, William J. Lawlis of Buckingham completed research on the Church Street Cemetery, the first RC cemetery in Buckingham. He published the
document below. 

I've had a hard copy for about 10 years. I believe this information would be of interest to researchers of Buckingham area ancestors. With this in mind,
I contacted Mr. Lawlis recently to see if he would agree to having his research published on your site. He is happy to oblige. 

The attached is original, converted to a word document format, which I hope can be used or adapted to bytown.net for inclusion on your Buckingham board.

Thanks

Note: The original document is formatted perfectly but when I transferred it to the web, some of the formatting below was lost. In spite of many efforts on my part, I still haven't figured out how to convert rows and columns data from MS-Word to HTML without having problems with the formatting ... Al Facts and Figures 1. The Cemetery is located in the south-west section of Buckingham, at 216 Church Street. 2. The grounds cover an area of approximately 2.5 acres being lots No. S2-706AC and 376 of the Town cadastre. 3. The administration and maintenance of the Cemetery is under the jurisdiction of Our Lady of Victory Parish. 4. At the present time we know the names of 674 who were buried here, but the total may well be closer to 800 in all when ongoing research is completed. 5. There were, it is be believed, a grand total of 200 or so monuments, iron and wooden crosses standing here at one time of which only 44 stones remain and none without some damage. 6. During the last effort in preserving the Cemetery in the early 1980's all bits and pieces of monuments that were found were embedded in the 4 concrete slabs around the central Monument below the 24 memorials which they preserve. 7. of the 44 monuments that remain, a survey shows: o that 34 of them are of soft white Canadian marble, of which 29 are embedded in concrete, ( 24 around the Central Monument and 5 further back) and 5 in a standing position. None of these monuments are in their original place; o that 6 are of salt grey stone, al I in a standing position and all were re-located except but one; o that 3 are of red granite, all standing and in their original place; o finally, one is of grey granite and standing where it was originally erected. 8. Amongst those buried here were Mary O'Farrell in 1856 and Ann Brady in 1867, mother and sister respectively, of Father John Brady. 9. The name Church Street dates back to the very beginning of Buckingham, it being the trail from the Village to the Church and Cemetery, located at that time in the outskirts, in the Township of Buckingham. Father John Brady has been honoured by the Town in having the Bridge, a Street and a Park named after him. 10. The Cemetery was officially recognized as an "Historical Site" by the Town by a motion passed at a regular Meeting of the Town Council of Buckingham held September 8th. 1964. Some Highlights 1827 - 1990 1827 Father J.P. Roupe erects a cross marking the future site for a chapel. 1836 O'Neill / O'Neil family donate 10 acres of land for a Church, priest house and cemetery and for some subsistence farming. (see posting dated May 1, 2013 re spelling of O'Neil / O'Neill) 1837 Father Pascal Brunet begins construction of a chapel. Father John Brady ordained in Montreal. 1840 Mission erected as a Parish. Father J. Brady appointed first Pastor. 1857 A larger Church is completed, in the Village, corner of Main and Denis. 1862 Father J. Brady retires as Pastor. 1879 Church Street Cemetery abandoned. New land on Main Street south acquired to replace it. 1881 Father J. Brady dies at the age of 83 and is buried in the crypt of the Church. 1890 A new Church, the 3rd, is erected and completed. 1891 Father Brady's remains translated from the old Church to the crypt of the new one. 1920 Church destroyed by fire. 1921 Re-built Church completed. 1940 Original Church property on Church St. fronting but excluding the Old Cemetery sold by Saint Gregory's Parish. 1942 An English speaking Parish is established under the Patronage of Our Lady of Victory. 1954 First attempt to restore old Cemetery begins, but shortly fails. 1962- A second attempt at restoring the Cemetery begins. 1962 Much is accomplished, especially the transfer of Cemetery property from St. Gregory's Parish to Our Lady of Victory. Despite all the efforts, the work lapsed again. 1981 A third try in preserving the Cemetery resumes and this time round is successful. The results obtained are remarkable. The re-dedication and blessing of the Cemetery took place on Sunday May 25th, 1986 in a ceremony presided by Father F. Langevin, M.S., Pastor of Our Lady of Victory Parish in the presence of a large number of Parishioners. 1990 A mass, at the Cemetery proper, is celebrated on Sunday June 17th, 1990 by Fr. D. Jeffrey, M.S, Pastor of Our Lady of Victory Parish before a large congregation of Parishioners and guests.

Church Street Cemetery, Buckingham, Quebec

New May 1, 2013: Hello, I saw your web site. However, I have just visited the cemeteries , both the newer one and the older one. The O'Neills of Buckingham's names should be written with 2 "L"s . O'NeiLL not one . Thank-you, Peggy O'Neill Note: There are thousands of O'Neil's in the Ottawa area, some spelled O'Neill and some spelled O'Neil. The spellings were often interchanged, even within the same family. In the early days, the spelling depended on the priests' or the census taker's recording of the name. In general, if you are searching for an O'Neil surname on the internet, you should do separate searches for both spellings. A search for O'Neil may not find O'Neill and vice versa. There are a great number of Irish surnames with many different spellings of the same family name. My O'Sullivan ancestors went from O'Sullivan to just Sullivan in the 1860's. In Ireland, My Burns ancestors were Byrne. ... Al
