Long Description:
This is one of several cemeteries that I have located that are being let go completely to weeds and time. (Sounds like the name of a book: Weeds And Time.) Still, it is recorded in FindAGrave as having 18 interments. All the readable grave markers have dates on them (a rarity!), and the earliest is from 1857.

After I found that there was a human entrance into the cemetery (but no car entrance) I made the mistake of going in. Then my socks were filled with those oat-like stickers that poke into your ankles. Ouch! But I took a few more photos and then got out - to pick my socks clean.

As with nearby Maddy Cemetery (misspelled Matty on the topos), this cemetery is misspelled as Stinett on the topos, instead of Stinnett as it should be.
Latest Burial: 5/21/1892

Earliest Burial: Not listed
