Susanna Moodie Returns to Belleville Harbour
 


The Hastings County Historical Society, the City of Belleville and Campbell Monuments co-operated to restore an old Susanna Moodie cemetery monument and place it on Freestone Point by the marina in Belleville Harbour. On the windy morning of October 9, an unveiling ceremony involving HCHS President Richard Hughes, Belleville Mayor Neil Ellis and Campbell Monuments representative Gary Foster brought the spirit of Susanna back to the bay. The marble monument is part of the original marker on the grave of Susanna Moodie and her husband John Dunbar Moodie in Belleville Cemetery. It was replaced in 2001.
