Salvation Army Cemetery,
Serpentine Rd.,
Mt. Moriah
Bay of Islands
Bay of St. Georges


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

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.
