Il s'agit, en réalité, de la tombe funéraire
de la femme de Léon Tessier,
inhumée au cimetière de Grenville,
dans les Laurendides, le 2mai 1873. Jane Porteous, fille de Richard Porteous et Elizabeth Wragg, de Montréal, était né le 8 mai 1801. Le 25 mai 1833, en l'église anglicane Christ Church de Montréal, elle épousait Léon Tessier, fils d'Amable Tessier et Marie Limoges. Le couple Tessier-Porteous, qui a résidé longtemps dans la paroisse de Grenville, au Québec, a vu naître seulement 6 enfants, 3 filles et 3 gars, de 1834 à 1841, qui assurent cependant une grande descendance.
