QAHN’s Scandal Maker’s 3:

The Seigneuress"

The gravestone of Adelaide Gugy represents a much larger story about the wealthy Swiss Protestant Gugy family who settled in Trois-Rivières, QC., in the 18th century. The tale includes upper-class gentility, a scandalous love affair and slavery. Host Julie Miller recounts the stories of Barthélemy and Conrad Gugy, Elizabeth Wilkinson, and Rebecca and Peggy from St. James Cemetery, also known as the Old Protestant Cemetery, in Trois-Rivières, Quebec.
