Penny thanks again for the info. The information on the headstone relates to Hugh Marquis and his wife Mary McIndoe as well as children that were lost at birth or shortly after.
Through research I've discovered that Mary's parents were John McIndoe who was a shipbuilder on Beaubear Island and Margaret Patterson. John and Margaret married on 24 Nov 1826 in Northumberland, New brunswick at what I believe was the Parish of Nelson.
I'm wondering two things is there any records of workers on the island? Is Margaret Patterson a decendant of the Patterson that arrive in Pictou, Nova Scotia in the 1770's?
If anyone is able to help with those questions I would be very greatful.
