Croque Cemetery

Old Croque Cemetery

A summer field picture of Allen's grave site. 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. 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..
