My grandfather, Hubert Frank Appleby, was a member of the Salvation Army in Burin, NL, and rose to the rank of captain. Both he and his future wife, Primadine Taylor, attended the services, one preaching, the other banging the tambourine.
On my last visit to Newfoundland three summers ago, I took several pictures of the Salvation Army building in Burin Bay. At that time, it was up for sale.

The Salvation Army
A branch of the Salvation Army was established at Burin in the year 1890 and the first barracks was erected in the area known as Ship Cove. The established churches were opposed and even hostile to the foundation of a religious body with a semi-military background in their midst. Consequently, the army moved to Burin Bay and erected a barracks where the present headquarters stand. The present citadel was built and dedicated in 1970.
A partial transcription of the Salvation Army Cemetery, Salmonier, Burin District, can be found on the Newfoundland’s Grand Banks website.
Newfoundland Vital Statistics for Burin, which also contains individuals in the Salvation Army, can also be found on the Newfoundland’s Grand Banks site.
