View of Cemetery
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:
ELLSWORTH Seth May 27, 1915 27  
STONE Sarah Ellen April 22, 1916 10 Daughter of George & Barbara Stone
WIGHT Shirley Stella Aug 16, 1924 1 Yr
10 Mos
Daughter of John G. & Harriett J. Wight
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.
