|NOTE: Some of these unknowns may match up with the ones above without photos as all headstones visible were photographed.|
Note : Transcriptions of the older headstones can be found in the Gerald Pocius Collection, Memorial University of Newfoundland Folklore & Language Archive. The parish under Fr. Gordon Walsh in the 1980's, paid students to paint lettering on the headstones. This caused damage to some. Also, most of the headstones have been removed from their original positions and lined in a row. Although this is thought of as a Catholic cemetery, it is possible that the JENKINS and LIMBREY men were magistrates of the area.
