Stockton Family Cemetery
This cemetery was established in April 1890 upon the death of the Stocktons' fifteen-year-old son, Simion Carothers Stockton. Years later, on December 15, 1908, Douglas and Mary Elizabeth Stockton legally designated this property as a family cemetery.
The cemetery, which contains over eighty graves and is still in use by the Stocktons' descendants, documents over one hundred years of family history. Those interred here include Douglas and Mary Elizabeth Stockton and twelve of their fourteen children; Ead White, a former slave who remained with the family after the Civil War; numerous children and infants; and three family members who drowned in a hurricane in Corpus Christi in 1919.
