Stephenville Crossing - Old Roman Catholic Cemetery

This cemetery is located in Stephenville Crossing on the banks of St George River and looks across the river to Mattis Point. There are many unmarked graves, also lots of plain white crosses and a number of markers that were unreadable or had no information on them.

Headstone inscriptions were transcribed by CYRIL DUBOURDIEU, August 12, 1999. While I have endeavored to be as correct as humanly possible, there could be some typographical errors.
