The infant son of Nelson Dulude and his wife, the former Kate Meyers, was stillborn. According to his death certificate, he was interred at St. Joseph's cemetery in Bay City. But sadly, the Diocese of Saginaw failed to properly care for the facility, which was in the shadows of the bell tower of Visitation church. In the early 1950s, plans were developed to have a mass reinterment of bodies at Calvary cemetery in Kawkawlin. But the plans did not go as planned. There were no water-tight vaults, nor rubber-sealed caskets, so the high waters of the Banks area took their toll. While hundreds were buried there, only a minute fraction were actually able to be moved. This little boy was not one of the lucky ones. Instead, the Diocese of Saginaw paved over the graves and turned the final resting place of all these souls into a parking lot.
