"Rock of Ages"


StonyCem-gate

Located near Stony, TX in west Denton Co.
Stony Cemetery was created in 1850 and is now inactive but not forgotten.
A lovely angel was added inside the gate in 1998.

StonyCem-rockline
This list was gathered by
Daina Rodgers Jordan, Nancy Cleere Rodgers and Edith Thatcher Cleere
on
May 18, 1997.
Every effort was made to accurately list each and every headstone,
some were in bad condition and others had deteriorated to such a degree
that white crosses had already been placed at the
grave, unfortunately, with no name. There are about 52 such crosses.
