As late as 1910 men came digging on Vansittart and Tin Kettle islands looking for skeletons, "Here we moved them where none will find them, at the dead of night my people removed the bodies of our grandmothers and took them to other islands, we planted shamrocks over the disturbed earth, so the last resting place of those girls who once had slithered over the rocks for seals will remain a secret forever."

Old George Maynard 1975
