Register of Births and Dedications
1894 - 1945
Salvation Army
Gooseberry Islands
Bonavista District

Key to Notes :
* Family supplied additional information for transcription.
? Possibly an error in the entry.
?? Script difficult to read, best guess.
( - ) Information in Bold script inserted by Domino Howse.

The Salvation Army opened the Corps at Gooseberry Islands in 1889, with Captains John Gooby and James Bowering in Command. They were followed by Captains Bishop, Moulton, D. Pelly, A. Tilley, Sheppard, A. Horwood, and Lydia Locke , all between 1889 and 1893. The Register of Births and Dedications for the first four or five years of the Corps History is not available. The first registry of births as transcribed, commences in 1894. I have transcribed these as accurately as humanly possible , yet there may be some differences between what is recorded herewith, and the birthdates commonly held, as well as commonly held spelling of names by individuals listed. --Domino Howse.
