Angel’s Ascension

Monument to the Dumas family in Old Mt. Calvary Cemetery off Archibald Street in Burlington, Chittenden County, Vermont, just south of the Winooski River and U.S. Route 7. Buried here are Louis Dumas, Sr. (1865-1939), Emma Brillion Dumas (1868-1951), and their son, Louis (1889-1907).

Their son died unexpectedly at the age of 18, and according to an obituary preserved behind glass at the monument, he had aspirations to become a priest. Unfortunately, moisture has seeped in and deteriorated the paper. The angel atop their monument points toward heaven with one hand and holds a cross draped in a garland of flowers in the other.

Old Mt. Calvary was primarily for French-Canadian Catholic families.
