Claudius (Francis) Lagarde was travelling to Dubuque, IA, where he was to be part of the staff of a catholic school and religious community. He was a Brother of the Sacred Heart travelling with 5 other con-freres of his community. He fell overboard on 17 June 1853, near Camanche, IA, and drowned. His body was found a few days later. The question is where was he buried? We simply know it was in a small town along the Mississippi. The body was identified by Brother David Boussuge of Dubuque and buried where he was found.
