Longitude: -87.8586054  

One of the oldest cemeteries in the county. Earliest marked grave is dated 1825, next is dated 1838 and 1841.
This cemetery dates back to the early 1800’s, containing the burial sites of many of those who settled in Stockton in the 1700’s.  The Aikin family gave this piece of land already containing early grave sites, for a community cemetery which  was later chartered with the State of Alabama in 1934—the present Stockton Memorial Cemetery.
