I was looking through Ancestry hints when I came across this:
Consider me curious. Definitely curious.
Antarctica? Can you even be buried in Antarctica? I’m diving in.
First of all, the photo doesn’t go with the burial. I don’t know who the Rices were.
But there is a Whalers Bay Cemetery on Deception Island. It’s the final resting place for whalers and men lost at sea in the area. Today, there are only two markers because a volcano buried the cemetery in ash back in 1969.
Those two markers belong to men from Norway. Neither of them was Joseph Aucoin.
A newspaper database search was no help. Google didn’t help either.
File this one under unsolved.
