Gervais McComber of Kahnawake, Quebec | Place Of Burial

A few days ago in my post  Old Catholic Cemetery,  I had mentioned that Don Diminie was looking for confirmation of exactly where the Gervais McComber who died in 1866 in Kahnawake, was buried. As so often happens, a helpful reader came forward with the information. Thank you Charleen!

Information from Charleen

“I’m responding to the inquiry about Gervais McComber. According to my elderly relatives, he is buried under the floor of St. Francis Xavier Church. This was common practice for those regarded highly in the Catholic community. I wonder if Don is related? I have been researching a mysterious branch of my family which partially includes the McCombers.”
