St Lawrence County, NY Biographies

Laramee, Rev. E. C., Gouverneur, was born in Plattsburg on February 3, 1857, and was educated for the priesthood at St. Mary's College and Le Grand Seminary, Montreal. He was ordained in 1882 by the late Bishop E. P. Wadhams at St. Mary's Cathedral, Ogdensburg, N. Y., and sent as assistant priest to St. Anus church, Mooer's Forks. He came to Gouverneur in 1883, and the Church of St. James has experienced a marked advance in every way since his incumbency. The church has been completely remodeled and renewed, and provided with a bell. A parochial residence and a cemetery have been purchased, and the congregation has increased so much that a school has been established. A beautiful school building in now in way of erection and will be inaugurated in November, Father Laramee also attends the missions at Keene, Fine, and Taleville, where he is presently providing these people with churches.
