Croque Cemetery

Old Croque Cemetery

A winter field picture of Allen's grave site. The stone is left of centre and you are looking almost
northeast towards the entrance of Croque Bay (Baie Du Croc) . The location historically has
the names: Local name is Sou'West Croque. Cook named it Irish Bay. And, the French
called it La Plaine. Windy Point (Cap De Vent) is the bluff headland on the right.
This area used to be a large man made rocky beach (une grève) used by
the French for drying fish. It amazes me how that stone has survived
a harsh environment and has not been hit by a snowmobile.
When I lived there in the 1950's a wooden fence encased
the stone. Since then the fence has rotted away.
There are one maybe two unmarked graves
in a cove to the left..
