Cemetery Home Page – St-Jean-Baptiste – Corberrie

Saint-Jean-Baptiste was a Mission Church for the Notre-Dame-du-Mont-Carmel Parish in Concession. The cemetery for the Mission of Saint-Jean-Baptiste is located at the corner of ch.Patrice Road and Route 340.

There are many gravestones of interest in this cemetery. Historical ones of note are the gravestones of Frédéric-Armand Robicheau(aud) and his spouse, Marguerite Melanson. Frédéric-Armand was one of the founders of Corberrie and in 1836, one of the first Acadians elected to the Provincial Legislature (an honor shared with Simon d’Entremont of East Pubnico).
