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.
