Fun Fact: Reverend Thomas Price Memorial Cemetery

The Reverend Thomas Price Memorial Cemetery is located west of Wiggins off of old Highway 26 on Thomas Price Cemetery Road. Approximately 1/4 mile away is Dale Cemetery. Both are the final resting places of many prominent settlers in what became Stone County.

Surrounded by beautiful pasture land with Red Creek running through it, this land, settled in 1818-1819 by John Dale, Maria Dale Price’s father, has been continually occupied by the family.  Thomas Price’s father, Jonathan, migrated with his family, including your Thomas in 1820. Thomas and Maria had nine children. Once of those, Theodocia, married James Batson. These descendents continue to live on and work this land.

This memorial documents their history. Several other gravestones in the cemetery document, in similar fashion, their continuation of the family.

  1. I hope to be able to see this in the next year or two. Rev. Price is my gggrandfather and I hope to meet up with some of the family on my trip. My father, James K. Price was son of Thomas Stanhope Price and grandson of James Monroe Price, one of Rev Price’s sons.
