Subject: [Q-R] Buried With Her Pew???????
Date: Sat, 29 Oct 2011 13:01:34 -0700


St. Germain, Rimouski, 1701-1795, image 81 of 281.....the last part of the
sentence states
"sous son ban, selon la demande quelle an avait faite de son vivant."

Please translate the whole sentence for me. Why would a person be buried
with their pew?
Was this a common practice? Was it a valuable item? Wouldn't a pew require
quite
a large grave? Why not leave it for another family member?

This is quite the mystery for me. any help is greatly appreciated and
thanking you in advance!
