The Presbyterian Church establishment’s plans to sell St Paul’s hit another snag today when it was discovered that the Church site itself contains human remains.
A geotech survey conducted on a piece of land right adjacent to St Paul’s has revealed it to be the site of a grave, “Right where I told them there was one!” said Gail Lyons.
Gail believes it is the grave of an eleven year old boy named George Deverall, who shot himself in the abdomen with a toy cannon while at school on the 4/5/1891 and died the next day.
Two other graves have also been found, one next to the Pascoe grave and the other on the footpath. The graves have been marked with blue paint.
