There is an old Salvation Army Cemetery in the woods on Serpentine Road in Mt Moriah, Bay of Islands. It is located near Sopers Crossing on the right hand side of the road behind some houses. It is mostly overgrown, but three headstones still remain: Shirley Stella daughter of John G & Harriett J WIGHT died 16 Aug 1924, age 1 yr 10 months Sarah Ellen daughter of George & Barbra STONE died 22 April 1916, age 10 years Seth ELLSWORTH died 27 May 1915,age 27 years My great uncle, James HUNT, born 1913, told me the following today as regards this cemetery. The WIGHT child was from somewhere on the Northern Peninsula and did not belong to the Bay of Islands. Why she is buried there, he did not know. There is also a Mary WELSHMAN, wife of George WELSHMAN, buried there. She was first married to a CROCKER. Children of Eric and Wallace BUTT are also buried there.
