BirthApril 1867 St. Mary's Bay, Placentia & St. Mary's District, Newfoundland, Canada1 
Marriagecirca 1905 Newfoundland, Canada; Principal=Elizabeth St. Croix1 
Occupationcirca 1908 Point La Haye, Placentia & St. Mary's District, Newfoundland, Canada; Patrick Vail served as the first assistant under John Mooney, and during this time a duplex was built to house the two keepers and their families. Joseph Breen replaced Vail as assistant and served in this role until Keeper Mooney retired in 1930. Breen was then promoted to head keeper and Reginald Mooney, son of John, was hired as assistant keeper.

Joseph Breen and Reginald Mooney lived in opposite sides of the duplex at Point La Haye for ten years. During this time, five or six Mooney children and a number of Breen children were born in the duplex. The two families steadily grew until they had twenty-five children between them.

Reginald and his wife Ann were married at the lighthouse, and Ann fondly remembered all the good times had there. Though isolated, the lighthouse seemed to be a community gathering place, as people from Gaskiers and Point La Haye would walk the beach to the station, where they would enjoy song, dance, recitation, and a homemade version of ‘spirits.’

It must have taken patience and sacrifice for two families to co-exist in such close proximity, especially with added company of a blaring foghorn. Ann recalls how after a while she didn't even hear the horn, but the same couldn't be said for the cries and whines of the yearly addition to the family.
Keepers: John Mooney (at least 1886 - 1889), Patrick Mooney (1890 - 1907), John Mooney (1908 - 1930), Joseph Breen (1930 - 1941), William White (1941 - 1968), Michael Cahill, Frank Mullett.2

BirthNovember 1908 St. Mary's Bay, Placentia & St. Mary's District, Newfoundland, Canada2,1 
Occupation1930 Point La Haye, Placentia & St. Mary's District, Newfoundland, Canada; Point La Haye Lighthouse - Patrick Vail served as the first assistant under John Mooney, and during this time a duplex was built to house the two keepers and their families. Joseph Breen replaced Vail as assistant and served in this role until Keeper Mooney retired in 1930. Breen was then promoted to head keeper and Reginald Mooney, son of John, was hired as assistant keeper.

Joseph Breen and Reginald Mooney lived in opposite sides of the duplex at Point La Haye for ten years. During this time, five or six Mooney children and a number of Breen children were born in the duplex. The two families steadily grew until they had twenty-five children between them.

Reginald and his wife Ann were married at the lighthouse, and Ann fondly remembered all the good times had there. Though isolated, the lighthouse seemed to be a community gathering place, as people from Gaskiers and Point La Haye would walk the beach to the station, where they would enjoy song, dance, recitation, and a homemade version of ‘spirits.’

It must have taken patience and sacrifice for two families to co-exist in such close proximity, especially with added company of a blaring foghorn. Ann recalls how after a while she didn't even hear the horn, but the same couldn't be said for the cries and whines of the yearly addition to the family.
Keepers: John Mooney (at least 1886 - 1889), Patrick Mooney (1890 - 1907), John Mooney (1908 - 1930), Joseph Breen (1930 - 1941), William White (1941 - 1968), Michael Cahill, Frank Mullett.3
