I was shooting footage in this house last May (2016) for a documentary that is part of the Group of Seven Guitar Project opening at the McMichael Gallery in Kleinburg in just a few days. Would love to talk with Dorothy Grant, this articles author, if she has the time. I am easy to find in Toronto re phone or facebook.

Thanks for there interesting article of the black granite and as a geologist I was always interested what it was called that. it became obvious the correct name was gabbro when I attended UNB 1972-1976. To add to the story and may be of some significance to the Titanic victims gravestones, there is also another black granite quarry in the Bonny River area that was known as the Black Quarry. It was mined extensively by the McGrattans of St. George about that time. We know about this as my grandfather owned the land where the stone was mined. The stone was mined and either haul down the lake and/or hauled to the nearby railing that extended northward from Bonny River to St Stephen.
