Northern Maine Cemeteries

The cemetery section of our site is in tribute and honor to our ancestors, who were pioneers in Northern Maine from the early 1800s, and to their descendants who settled in the Saint John River Valley and Fish River Valley in Northern Maine.

It is an outgrowth of the Ste Luce and the Holy Family Parish portion of our site. Due to the consolidation of several parishes in the region, the history on the original parishes are disappearing from the Portland diocesean web site. It is our intention of providing a brief history of each of the parishes but for the moment, several database have been added that can be searched for ancestors and relatives who are buried in the parish cemeteries.

In the summer of 2006, Ste Luce in Frenchville, Maine ceased to exist as a separate parish. Ste Luce, Ste Agathe, and St Joseph in Sinclair were merged into a new parish, Our Lady of the Valley.

In the summer of 2007, St Louis in Fort Kent, St Mary in Eagle Lake, St Joseph in Wallagrass/Soldier Pond, and St Charles Boromeo in St Francis, Maine all ceased to exist as a separate parishs and were merged into a new parish, St John Vianny. The St John parish in St John, Maine and Holy Family in Daigle, Maine had previously been closed.

From the Files of Geraldine Chassé

In the summer of 1978, Geraldine Chassé and Rachel (Chassé) DeFarges took pictures of the various cemeteries and churchs in Northern Maine and across the border in Canada. In the summer of 2007, Geraldine Chassé and Rachel (Chassé) DeFarges provided these photos to me. The following photo pages are published here with their permission as a tribute to all the work Geraldine has done over the years to preserve Our Acadian and French-Canadian Heritage.
