Refurbishments and discovery in Chelsea Old Protestant Cemetery

Volunteering is an act of citizenship and philanthropy and a most fundamental one in society. The Municipality of Chelsea is grateful for the efforts made over the years by the volunteers of the Gatineau Valley Historical Society (GVHS) to preserve the Old Chelsea Protestant Cemetery.

In August 2016, the volunteers of the GVHS, in partnership with the Municipality, conducted landscape work by adding a retaining wall at the cemetery’s entrance. This led them to an incredible discovery: a gravestone base was unearthed near the lot of the Blair family when stumps and roots of trees had to be removed for the installation of the stone wall. (Photo insert).

Mrs. Carol Martin, historian and member of the GVHS, was kind enough to provide us the following details about this discovery. In 1985, the Ottawa branch of the Genealogical Society of Ontario listed the monuments of this cemetery and noted a partial tombstone with the inscription "In memory of Matthew Blair, died (the lower part of the stone is missing). »- Two Blair families moved to Chelsea, in the Kingsmere area, during the 1830s and parts of their former property are now part of the Mackenzie King Estate. Matthew Blair, a 15 year old, was listed in the census of 1852 of this region, thus providing a date of birth from 1836 -1837. The date of his burial has not been found and the missing part of the tombstone has disappeared.
