This church was built in McKeesport in the early 1900's and was flooded several years ago and then closed by the Catholic Church.
Pope Pius V was an interesting person. He excommuninicated Henry VIII's daughter Elizabeth I and at the same time, supported the claim of the English throne to the family of Mary Stewart otherwise known as Mary Queen of Scots.
Mary Stewart's son became King James Stewart of England who invited Pocahontas to his Royal Court. King James Stewart's son was Charles I. Most familes in and around Pittsburgh in the early 1700's had land grants from Charles I and or Oliver Cromwell.
It does seem that the Randolphs of Thomas Jefferson, who were well known to be related to Pocahontas one way or the other, were involved in relocation Queen Alliquippa and her band of Native Americans from what is now Racoon Creek Park to McKeesport at the time of the Logstown Treaty in 1747.
Peter Jefferson was good enought to mark on his Jefferson and Fry Map of 1751 the location of Queen Alliquippa's camp in Mckeesport which is now Versailles Cemetery in McKeesport.
Then a map done by the French officals at Ft Duquesne stored at Versailles France clearly show the Alliquippa camp site as the overnight camp of General Braddock and his troops before the attack the next morning on Fort Duquesne. General Braddock's troops crossed the river at the Duquesne Bridge then on to Kennywood Park. At the park, his troops crossed the river again on their way to Braddocks Field were General Braddock's English troops were defeated by French and Indian forces out of Catholic French held Ft Duquesne.
A small group of English forces split off at Kennywood and continued down Carson Street toward the West End area but never crossed the river to attack the fort from the west.
