Carbonear Shipwreck Victims - 1874
"A couple of years ago, I was doing some fieldwork on Anticosti Island (Quebec) 
and I came across a grave which was of some shipwreck victims. 
At the time, I thought it was interesting and took a photo of it."

Gail Radcliffe - London, Eng.

The headstone reads:

memory of 
Captain John Edgar Joyce
Carbonear, Newfoundland
aged 27 years 
and crew 
of Brigantine Orient
lost 22nd November 1874 
who are buried as follows:

Joseph Taylor (25 years)
Stewart Taylor (17)
Thomas Fitzpatrick (13?)
William Clark (21)
Charles Henry (36)
Ambrose Forward (20)
Richard Taylor (19?)

Note: This headstone is not in a cemetery or near a church or even a town.  It is located in a field not far from the beach on the south side of the island of Anticosti in the mouth of the St. Lawrence River (Quebec).
