NLGenWeb Headstone Inscriptions

Notre Dame Bay ~ NDB West District

Julie's Harbour (Badger Bay) Cemetery

Julie's Harbour was a community in the bottom of Badger Bay, Notre Dame Bay, on the west side. There are no houses nor remnants of life there now. The graveyard is grown over with very large trees. However, there are still 9 headstones, 6 of them are standing, 3 are broken and lying in the moss. Many of the graves are unmarked but are quite visible as graves, some are caved in. The information from the headstones, in the same manner it appears on the stone, is shown below:

Headstone inscriptions were transcribed by TERRY ROWSELL, September 1999. While I have endeavored to be as correct as humanly possible, there could be some typographical errors.
