Cemetery listings, names and locations, are based on the work of Stone County Historian, Freda Daum Massey. As the years have gone by, many cemetery names have changed for numerous reasons. Sometimes new people in a community decide to change the name without understanding the original naming of the cemetery. As this work progresses, we will try to include the “lost” names of the cemeteries and the story behind the names. The list below not only contains the larger cemeteries, but also the very small family cemeteries. In time, you will find information about these cemeteries including pictures, maps, and cemetery indexes compiled by members of the Stone County Historical Society.
