right are the members of Eugene’s blood relatives: his maternal grandmother, his father Charles and his mother Marie-Rose, his uncle Charles Luois Antoine, his sister Eugenie, his brother-in-law Armand Natal de Boisgelin, his nephew Louis, who dies as a Jesuit novice, his niece Caroline and his nephew Eugene, the only member of the family to have descendants. The vault has been used for the family up to now.
To the left are the members of the Oblate family. These were the first Oblates to die: Marcou (age 27), Dumolard at 20, Arnoux at 23, Suzanne at 30 and Capmas at 40. Some other early oblates are buried here: the good Father Mie, the third to enter the Congregation. Some of the first missionaries who went abroad likewise are buried here: Bishop Semeria, the first Oblate sent by Saint Eugene to Sri Lanka, Fr Telmon, a “holy terror” who wasn’t afraid to preach in the bars of Texas in USA. These Oblates worked passionately and tirelessly, the also laid foundation for the next generations of OMIs to come.
