  • bullet    General Notes:

    This Bernard family in the course of time was called St Bernard; several
    descendants named St Bernard lived along the River St Clair. William
    was a trader in Detroit. In 1762 he bought a farm on the North East
    Coast of Detroit. This farm was patented from the French Government by
    Charles Chene on 14 Jul 1734. The farm became the residence of the
    Bernard family and ownership of it passed to the son, Hippolyte Bernard,
    who sold it to Francis de Paul Malcher in 1802. Under the American
    regime this farm is called Private Claim No. 16. Francis de Paul Malcher
    deeded the farm 8 Apr 1808 to five trustees representing the Catholic
    Church on the North East Coast of Detroit. From that time on the farm
    belonged to the church and was called the "Church-Farm".
