BOYLSTON, BOYLSTON PROVINCIAL PARK

The foundation of an old Catholic Church, that predates
St. Anne's in Guysborough, has been found here.
Is there possible some burials also?


CANSO, PETIPAS ISLAND AND BURYING ISLAND

"There were many graves on Petipas Head, and the little island
in the harbor known as Burying Island, was a full cemetery.  The
banks of this island gradually crumbled away, washed by the rains and the
sea, bringing to light once more parts of the coffins so long ago interred
here. These were both said to have been French burial places."

GOSHEN, TAYLOR LAKE

I have heard there is a Native buriel ground on west
side of Taylor Lake. Taylor Lake is between Goshen and
South Lochaber, Guys. Co. Submitted by Hattie Farrell.


GUYSBOROUGH, CUTLER'S COVE

A old French cross at Cutler's Cove was present when the
Loyalists arrived.  This may indicate a cemetery.
