Sivier's Island - Sivier's Island Cemetery

Sivier's Island is also spelled Sceviours Island. According to the 1921 Census, there were 55 people living there. Cadet Fennemore was a Salvation Army Officer from the Great Northern Pennisula who was stationed on Sivier's Island. She died during the winter and the conditions were too bad to take her off, so she was buried there. This is the only grave on the island with a headstone and it is fenced in. There are probably at least 5 more people buried in this cemetery. To get to the cemetery you have to go into Eastern Harbour on Sivier's Island.

This headstone was read, recorded and transcribed by GAIL & BOYCE STRYDE, July 2000. While we have endeavored to be as correct as humanly possible, there could be some typographical errors.
