BONAVISTA BAY DISTRICT,
This island, just West of Salvage and less than a mile in length, was settled
in the 1850's
and vacated again in the late 1920's. The cemetery is just beyond the grassy clearing on the N. side of the cove
where most of the people lived, and is now hidden among a growth of evergreens. In July 1999 ten headstones were visible:
|1.||MOSS||Henry||Jan. 11, 1891||74|
