Anishnaabe and Metis were baptized and married through itinerant priests to Manitoulin.
Are there extant records of these events that occured Wikwemikong Mission?
Are they in Toronto? Or do they reside with the church?

Thank you Judy,

I found this write up on Saint-François-Xavier aka Caughnawaga Mission aka Mission of St. Francis Xavier on the Répertoire Canadien des lieux patrimoniaux (RCLP) website.

"La mission Saint-François-Xavier a été fondée par les Jésuites en 1667 à La Prairie pour y desservir les Iroquois chrétiens. Des difficultés économiques la forcent à changer d’endroit à plusieurs reprises jusqu’à son établissement définitif à Kahnawake en 1716 dans le territoire des Mohawks de Kahnawake, au Québec. Des missionnaires jésuites ont établi la mission en 1716-1718. L’église Saint-François-Xavier été fondée en 1845".

This Quebec link to Algoma is a GREAT lead.
Thank you.
