THIS CEMETERY'S NAME IS "STONY FORK CEMETERY" ... not Mount Paran Baptist Church (old).
This is not affiliated with Mount Paran Baptist Church and is listed with Watauga County, NC as "Stony Fork Cemetery".
Whomever is having this changed...stop as I have to transfer each memorial every time you do this. I live across from this cemetery and know the families, the history, and the churches nearby.
The folks buried here recently were not church members and to say so is to stir up some bad blood / history. I will not air this here...so don't ask me to.
I have looked up some death certificates and added a couple here that clearly states "Stony Fork Cemetery".
This is why I no longer contribute to find-a-grave. It's not worth my time and aggravation when people change names of cemeteries because of what they think and not what has clearly been documented.
There are around 30-40 graves in the cemetery with only three headstones that are readable. The two stones that are in good shape are stones provided to families by the the US Veterans Affairs.
