cemetery on Bay du Vin Island?

I am trying to verify a family story that there was once a cemetery on Bay du Vin Island in Miramichi Bay. This cemetery would have existed in the 1800s. As a kid, spending summers at Bay du Vin Beach I would visit Bay du Vin Island to beachcomb and dig clams. We generally landed our boat at the deep water cove opposite Gardiner's point. I don't ever recall seeing any signs of a settlement on the island but I recall my late father, Robert Francis Sadler, who grew up in Chatham and summered in Hardwicke, saying there was once a cemetery on the island. I am researching the Gulliver family from Bay du Vin. I am aware of two Bay du Vin cemeteries on the mainland -- St. John the Evangelist Anglican Cemetery (New and Old) but would be most interested to hear from someone with knowledge of a cemetery on Bay du Vin Island.
