Although we found mention of Saint Viateur during our research, we really don't have any information about it.<1> Given the context of how Saint Viateur was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it's a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
We've added Saint Viateur to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. If you can help us with Saint Viateur, please Contact Us.

We have created a list of 10 communities that are near Saint Viateur.
Note: The GPS coordinates that we are using for Sorel Tracy came from an uncertain source and they still need to be verified:<2>
If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went south past Saint Viateur and then turned east". While Saint Viateur could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Saint Viateur as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.
Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places (or areas) where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. For example, you might hear somebody say that they are going over to Miller Creek to see Pete ... Miller Creek is just a gas station and a couple of homes at the crossroads. While it might not be on the map, everybody in the area knows it by that name.
Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, several families clustered in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc. The community might still exist, is now gone or only existed for just a short period of time.
Also keep in mind that Saint Viateur could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong . Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community - we're working to straighten it all out.
If we have found a location and have questions about the accuracy of our information, we will simply say that the marker is 'in the vicinity'. We are not confident about the location and the position of our marker is only a rough guide. If we have too many doubts about the location, we will not include it in our database.
Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Saint Viateur) to Point B.
Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Saint Viateur. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 46.1667, Longitude: -73.1667
