"The French Cemetery
occupied the present site of the Out-door Mass Ground of St.
Christopher's Church on the west side of the present Niagara Falls
Boulevard, just north of Ellicott Creek. It was abandoned until
Monsignor William P. Solleder of that pastorate erected a shrine
in 1947 to commemorate the early french settlers".
