NEW HARRIS CEMETERY

Victoria County, NS

May 1997


Located at New Harris or Slios a Brochan. At foot of Kelly's Mountain, east side, and before causeway leading to Seal Island Bridge, is a road called New Harris Road off Trans-Canada Highway, bearing west. Turn off onto New Harris Road (near trailer park/campground) and proceed west about 1 mile. On left, shore side, is a green steel gate and green anchor-type fencing. If you see an aquaculture operation, you have just passed the New Harris cemetery. There is evidence of 10-12 graves with no stones.
Rhoda Morrison MacLean and Roberta Fraser rfraser@highlander.cbnet.ns.ca copied the inscriptions. Corrections welcome. All stones recorded May 1997.
