Welcome to My Family History

Welcome to Stoney Point

Stoney Point Church

In the 1870's and 1880's, the pioneer settlement of Stony Point was a thriving agricultural community with a cotton gin, general store, gristmill, molasses mill and school.

See Stony Point School 1910 and Stony Point School 1912.

On Aug. 17, 1878, area residents formed the Stoney Point Baptist Church.

Five years later, A. J. Scribner and R. N. Coffey donated land to the church, which now comprises part of the burial ground. In 1887, J. C. and Elizabeth Price deeded property for the first sanctuary. Destroyed by lightning in 1926, it was replaced by a smaller structure dedicated in 1938.

The earliest grave in the cemetery, that of W. M. Wilson's infant son who died in 1880, predates the Church's acquisition of the site. Other graves include those of pioneer settlers and leaders of the church and community.
