Paleonet: Ordovician locality

My department has a very small collection of material that was originally part of the non-type material of James Hall. For a multitude of reasons, most are missing labels and/or locality information. Today I noticed two small slabs of graptolites. Both had typed labels on them that read "Point 3 miles above Riviere St. Anne., J.R." One then reads "P 38, 1858"; the other "P 68, 1859".
I am assuming that J.R. is James Richardson. I also am assuming that the material is from the Ordovician of Quebec. Does anyone:

1)      Know more about this locality?

2)      Can point me to what  pages or plates are being referred to?

Thanks in advance. - Roy
