"Unfortunately, the records for the St Anthony's Cemetery were lost
quite a few years ago. A member of the community did try and
find all the burial records several years ago. The records that
do exist are scattered between St. Peters, Muenster, Prince Albert,
Watrous, and R.M. of Viscount (mostly infant burials).

The records are very hard to search unless you are looking for
a specific name. Because there are anywhere from 11 to 25
unmarked graves in this cemetery, I thought it might be useful
to list all the people who may have attended this church.

The following list is taken from the local history book. St. Bede's
Mission Church was built in 1907. Before the church was built
mass was held in the John Koob home. The following families helped
build St. Bede's: John Wilkie, Jim Welch, John Poncelet, John Koob
and sons, Patrick Callaghan, Jim Horan, Frank Walsh, Dave Welch, Mike
Herman, Jack Backes, Mr. Haberman, John Brecht, Carl and Alex Saretzki,
John and Frank Gurski, Mr. Loroff, and Andrew Miller, George Muench. "


St. Bede's was closed in 1917, because there were now churches in
Meacham and St. John's to the east. The church was reopened in 1923
and renamed St. Anthony's, with 19 families attending: John Poncelet,
Dominic Koob, John Wilkie, Henry Graff, Frank Koob, Joe Koob,
Joe Backes, Jack Backes, George Middleton,Louis Phiel, Mike Herman,
Tony Ludwig, Mr. D. Savage, Karl Savage, Julius Marquis, Adelare Marquis,
Paul Wilkie, Hector Couchene."

Several burials are remembered by the community: a Gurski man and wife and
child, an Aisley male child, and a Brecht male
child."
