Fiftieth Anniversary of St Joseph's in Cohoes, the first French parish in town


In an earlier blog posts, I wrote about the three French churches in Cohoes.  St. Joe's was the first French Catholic parish in Cohoes and the one Elizabeth "Libbie" Bissonnette and John Albert Berryman Wills were married on 26 August 1903.   It was where Etta Wills and Dorothy Wills made their First Communions.
