Whoever buried Elizabeth B. Fraser in 1895 (aged 36 years, nine months) picked a secluded and lovely spot in farmland north of Gatineau, overlooking a steep ravine and little creek. Her grave keeps company with some 30 others, Barbers and Langfords and Davidsons who settled and farmed here from the early 1800s on.
But this family cemetery is abandoned. Gatineau has grown up around it, so that Highway 50 zooms past on one side and new homes surround it on the other: House, house, cemetery, house, house, all along the rue de l’Épée.
