Contractor for Original Holy Cross Church

We know from parish records that John Burke built the original Holy Cross Church and were surprised to discover that some of the wooden beams in the church are stenciled with his name. Remember that the church property was in the bounds of Seabright in the late 1800's and that our incorporated name is "The Church of the Holy Cross of Seabright, N.J."
