  • From Marc Cormier on 1872 - Le naufrage du Monticello

    The first USS Monticello was a wooden screw-steamer in the United States Navy during the American Civil War. She was named for the home of Thomas Jefferson. She was briefly named Star in May 1861.

    After the war, Monticello decommissioned 24 July 1865 at Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and was sold at public auction at Boston, Massachusetts to W. H. Lincoln 1 November 1865. Redocumented for merchant service 25 July 1866, she served American commerce until foundering off Newfoundland 29 April 1872.

  • From Marc Cormier on Une histoire qui cloche

    Dear Mr. Cormier,

    Fr. W. passed your email on to me as I had done a fair bit of research about the bells at St. Mary’s. However, there is very little information about them available. If there was one bell that was here when the first church was erected, then there is no information as to what happened to it. The bells that are here now were first installed in 1879. During the Halifax explosion some of the bells were cracked and were sent to England to be re-cast. On the largest of the bells there is an inscription of the re-casting date and that the bells were in honour of those serving in World War I.

    I am sorry I cannot offer you any information on the bell that you are searching for. If I can be of any other assistance, then please let me know.

    Kind regards, G.W. (16 juillet 2004)
