Terence d. 18 Aug 1843 and his burial record appears in the church records of Notre Dame Parish, Montreal. I suspect he was buried in St. Antoine Suburbs Cemetery there, as Mt. Royal Cemetery (Cote-des-neiges) was not established until after 1850 something. Family tradition has that he was buried at Mt. Royal, so the only way that would happen is if his remains were transferred up there later on. I have checked with the Cote-des-Neiges Cemetery and they have no record of either him or his daughter Elizabeth (Murphy) Maher, who died on 24 Mar 1852. Terence's wife Bridget Victory d. 8 Nov 1874 at Ste. Brigide d'Iberville, Quebec, and was buried there. I have been to that community. No old headstones survive. I have to admit that I have not yet done newspaper research to find an obituary, but as she was old and living alone at the time, I would not expect that her obituary, if there was one, would be of much help. I have thought for a long time that my best shot at learning more of their origins would be in notarial records, but my forays into those records have been very limited. Future trips to Quebec National Archives may eventually prove useful.
