Morrissey, British Columbia was a company coal mining town that was a ghost town by 1909. At one time there was a four room school, a three storey hotel, businesses, a newspaper, even a brewery. The coal in the mines turned out to be unsuitable and the mine had several accidents.
There is nothing left of the town except old overgrown coke ovens that I posted in the past. I did not know about the cemetery. Some work has been done to clean up and update the cemetery. There are crosses with some background information on those that died. Most of the stories are a little unsettling. Very few seem to have died from natural causes.
If you did not know exactly where this place is you would not find it. It is hidden in the trees off of a gravel road. Google gives a location for it that is off by at least fifty feet.
