From Le Clergé Canadien-Français: "né à Montréal, le 6 avril 1842, de Joseph Collerette-Bourguignon et de Louise Verdon, fit ses études à Saint-Laurent près Montréal et à Memramcook dans le Nouveau-Brunswick, et fut ordonné à Montréal par Mgr Clut, le 1 mai 1870.

Prêtre d'une grande piété, il aimait particulièrement le Dieu de l'Eucharistie ; chaque jour il passait des heures en sa présence, on l'y a souvent vu pleurer.

Il est décédé en son presbytère du Cap-Pelé, le 11) mai 1917."2
