On a recent trip to Quebec City I made two trips to Mount Hermon Cemetery to pay my respects to relatives.
There are various members of the Jordan and Norton families laid to rest there. A cool aspect was realizing I had a record at home of the purchase of the headstone for Richard Lee Norton and his wife Hannah Pozer Jeffery by their daughter Caroline (Norton) Jordan.
The receipt for the stone did not have a location, but it was signed by HW Treggett and I knew that the Treggett family had been in charge of the cemetery. A look at the Mount Hermon website and found that the Treggett family managed the cemetery for generations, spanning the years 1865-2014. And sure enough according to their website HW Treggett was in charge when my great grandmother made her purchase in 1931.
I do not have a picture of Caroline with the headstone but I think she would have been quite proud to have seen the stone installed at the cemetery. Her husband Peter Jordan is pictured standing by the stone many years later, likely c1960.
If you suspect you may have ancestors buried at Mount Hermon, BAnQ website has a searchable index covering the years 1848-1904.
