Father Joseph Hugon, a native of France, was assigned to the Catholic parish of North Florida in 1877. He served the church of Tallahassee for thirty-five years, until his death in 1912. Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church (first located on North Monroe St.) was built under his direction in 1898. Father Hugon's gravemarker has a religious motif of a cross and wine glasses, with an inscription on back that translates from Latin as, "This man, disdaining the world and earthly things, exulting in the riches from Heaven, molded with his teaching and his art."
