The old Roman Catholic Cemetery in Shoal Brook Bonne Bay is very badly overgrown.
It originally took about 2 1/2 hrs. to find,
there are only 4 headstones visible and only 1 of them is standing.
The cemetery is located on the right hand side of the road,
just past a private property sign nailed to a tree
when you are travelling towards Glenburnie. It up from the road about 200 ft.
The first headstone I found is laying on the ground and is in Latin and French it is as follows; 1. In hoc signo vinces Ci Git un Francais Pierre - Marie LeLuhAndré Quartiere Maitre de Timoherie décéde a bord du Drac le 6 Septembre 1892 a lage de 23 ans The second headstone is laying on the ground in 2 pieces by its base; 2. Erected by James Hallan in loving memory of his beloved wife Lydia Josephine who died September 5, 1883 aged 43 years also their daughter Mary Ann died 16 February 1884 aged 20 ½ years The third headstone is the only one still standing; 3. In memory of Charles Curnell died April 9, 1897 aged 67 years also his wife Johanna died August 14, 1876 aged 40 years The fourth headstone is broken off about half way down the top piece is leaning against the lower half; 4. In memory of Mary Ellen Cannale who died August 5, 1874 aged 5 years verse
