* From 2012 to 2014 Dan Mark added 1140 new listings of unmarked or unidentifiable Catholic graves from 1845-1940 data in St-Romain (Hemmingford) Catholic church records.
Hemmingford is located in the former Huntingdon County in the southwest area of Quebec Province, about 45 minutes south of Montreal near the US border.

The database was compiled mainly from readable gravestone inscriptions from all the following known Hemmingford and area cemeteries (which could also be called "outdoor museums"). Entries showing "no stone", "unknown stone", or if no specific stone is mentioned were taken from church records.
The cemetery records, which total over 7500, are combined and sorted by last name. Death dates range from 1808 to 1994 +.
