United Church (Old Cemetery) Bunyan's Cove

On my latest trip to Bunyan's Cove, NF, I recorded the remaining legible inscriptions on the headstones
at the old cemetery of the United Church. There were many, many grave sites that did not have a headstone
so I was unable to record them. The surnames that I have recorded are:

TUCKER-PHILLIPS-BURT-HARVEY- PENNEY-MILES-MYLES
WHITE-LITTLE-CHAULK-MARTIN-COLES-OLDFORD
