Hello Dolly... :-)
It reads...to me anyway...:
"Enterrement de Joseph Tremblay le 17 décembre 1758 - L'an de notre Sgr
mil sept cent cinquante huit le dix sept décembre .... faisant les
fonctions curiales dans la paroisse de St Louys de lisle aux coudres
j'ay inhumé avec les cérémonies accoutumées dans le cimetière de cette
paroisse le corps de Joseph Tremblay mort quelques jours auparavant muni
de tous les sacrements agé de trente huit ou trente neuf ans, presque
toute la paroisse a assiste a ses funérailles dont les uns ont signé
avec moy les autres ayant déclaré ne le scavoir de ce interpellé suivant
"Burial of Joseph Tremblay on December 17, 1758 - In the year of Our
Lord Seventeen Hundred and Fifty Eight, we (yadda yadda) doing the
curial fonctions in this parish of Sa. Louis of the Isle aux Coudres, I
have proceeded to bury with the usual ceremonies in the cemetery of this
parish the remains of Joseph Tremblay who died a few days prior having
received all the sacrements, being 38 or 39 years of age, almost the
entire parish in attendance some who have signed with me the others
having declared not being able to do so when asked in accordance with
the (Royal) Ordonnance."
The act is followed by the signatures of some of the witnesses, namely:
Jean Marc BOUILANNE (the name is now spelled BOULIANNE); Charles DANIS
(hey! that's one of mine!!); and the priest, J. CHAUMONT, ptre.
Sorry Dolly, there is no mention he was even married, let alone the name
of his widow.
However, there seemed to have been some kind of epidemic going around
the parish in December 1758, judging by the number of dead and the
multiple burials. Don't forget that this was a crucial time in the
history of New France, and those poor islanders on Isle aux Coudres
were, for all intents and purposes, completely cut off from the mainland
and vital supplies due to the presence of the English fleet. Also,
their Winter stores had most likely been raided.
