Need More on Vinton!

Dear Editor,

I was just searching the web for historical background on Western Quebec. What I saw on this web page concerned me as it did not mention a small hamlet known now as Vinton and originally known as Franktown. It was a very busy and thriving community in the 1800s and 1900s. Its only church, St. Elizabeth Roman Catholic Church, is still used and has been designated a historical site. Other towns around there were missions of it along with St. Anne's on Calumet Island.

I feel that Vinton deserves mention at least for its historical value.
