*From the Union Hill (Stone) Cemetery Records)

Additional information on the Stone family was provided in April 2002 by Jack Blair of League City, Texas, a great grandson of G.W.D. "Dal" Stone, who was buried here in 1911: "Dal Stone was a farmer all his life and a justice of the peace in White County for 25 years. He came with his parents from Hardin County, Tennessee, where he was born, in 1853. He married Lou Candy Strickland February 17, 1869, with a license from Conway County, Arkansas. The minister was D. Lewis. The license shows Lunanny Stricklin instead of Lou Candy Strickland. Dal’s youngest brother Richard Dabner Stone was born February 6, 1853, in Hardin County; therefore, their parents Meredith and Elizabeth Ann (Garrett) Stone could not have come to Arkansas in 1851 as many people report. The family stayed in Tennessee until after the death of Elizabeth Ann’s mother in 1853. Dal and Lou show first in the 1880 census for White County, and again in 1900 and 1910. Lou shows up in the 1920 census for Lawrence County, Arkansas, with her daughter Mary Ann (Stone) Day and her husband William Frederick Day. Mary Ann had married to W.A. Nelson in Arkansas and divorced him in 1902 after my mother’s birth. I feel duplicate entries have been made in Union Hill Cemetery as various people tried to tidy up the records."
