This project is for those buried in Stoney Point Cemetery, Altoga, Collin County, Texas.

From Collin County History:

The cemetery is about 1 mile east of the Melissa Feed Yards. It is visible from FM 545, but access is from CR 1095, which is not listed on the old county maps.

There is a historical marker for the church and cemetery. The "E" in Stoney comes and goes with whomever is writing the name. The church and cemetery are on the James Fisher survey on the waters of Sister Grove Creek.

The community here was called Stony Point. In the 1870's and 80's Stony Point was a thriving community with a cotton gin, a general store, a molasses mill, a grist mill, a church and a school. The first school was called the Johnson School. The name "Chambliss" is also applies to the area. It was actually a little northeast of the church and cemetery.

The Stony Point Baptist Church of Christ was organized in 1878. Out of the Stony Point Baptist Church were started the Altoga Baptist Church, Valdasta Baptist Church and White Rock Baptist Church. I believe that all of these churches still exist. The Stony Point Church is no longer in use except for funerals or special occasions.

There are several deeds pertaining to the church and cemetery. The first one is listed in Vol 19, p 307. The cemetery is large, covering several acres, and is fenced. It was deeded to the Stony Point Cemetery Association in March of 1938. The cemetery is well maintained and still in use.
