Old Roman Catholic Cemetery
in Shoal Brook Bonne Bay

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;

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;

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;
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;
In memory of
Mary Ellen Cannale
who died August 5, 1874
aged 5 years
