1. Stonewall Community Cemetery Marker
Inscription. This cemetery originally served the settlement of Millville, laid out by Israel Nuņez, who operated a stage stop in the vicinity after the Civil War. Although he set aside land for the cemetery, it was not formally deeded until 1934 by J.O. Walker. The earliest marked gravesite is that of William Jacobs (d. 1879). The settlement of Millville became Stonewall in 1875, and the cemetery remained in active use until 1939. Burials resumed in 1966, and a cemetery association formed three years later. The site is a landmark of local history.
