Commodore John Barry Chapter

Thank you DAR and Wreaths Across America Volunteers. Your time and enthusiasm is greatly appreciated. Our veterans will not be forgotten.

John S. Stone, one of the first black pioneers of Melbourne, founded the present day J.S. Stone Memorial Cemetery in 1921. This is a privately owned cemetery and is the final resting place of many of the area’s pioneers and founders, many of them former slaves, or descendants of slaves, who settled here after the Civil War.
