Stoney Fork Baptist Church Cemetery, Montgomery Co., NC

In the next posts I will share the photographs I took of the Stoney Fork Cemetery in Montgomery Co., North Carolina.  I am going to share these tombstones in groupings by the names.  It is too difficult to try to do them exactly like the cemetery.  This will make it difficult to see relationships between the people because they will not be in rows but it will make it easier to review the stones and read them.

The cemetery is behind the church.  You approach the tombstones from the church driveway and you are on the high elevation of the cemetery as is slopes down from you.  There is a nice big tree to park the car under because it is hot!  It is well maintained although I suspect that not all burials have tombstones so you do need to check the online links to get a better picture of who is buried here or even contact the church?

The church stands at the entrance to the area which is down a gravel road. 

It is a very lovely, pleasant area and setting.  It is quiet and restful.  It is sheltered from the roads that are around it.
