The Stiner Family - Part II

These headstone inscriptions and newspaper abstract are the only pieces of information that I have to date on the Stiners. I will be doing some looking at the 1910 and 1920 census records, etc. to see if I can locate a family by this name in Baxter or Fulton County, Arkansas.

Go to the first Stiner page on this website.

Jacob H. and Laura B. Stiner Headstone

The full inscription reads:

1867-1928 1865-1934

This stone measures "H x "W x "D. It has a masonic emblem between Jacob's dates of birth and death.

It is located in a rear middle section of the cemetery and is to the left of Jacob's parents' headstones. Graves nearby include many fieldstone markers and a ?child's headstone holder with the marker missing.

According to the February 2, 1934, issue of the "Baxter Bulletin", Jake Stiner died Wednesday and his burial was in Fluty Cemetery. Chas. Stiner and family of Whitewater KS came for the funeral.'
The Arkansas death record has his date of death as Jan 24, 1934.

We know from the obituary of Angaline Stiner that Jacob H Stiner was the son of W. Henry and Angaline Stiner.

Per the Arkansas death index, Laura died December 4, 1928.

Lora B. Stiner Missing Headstone

In 1968 when the Cameo Club took the inscriptions from headstones in Fluty, they transcribed 'Lora B. Stiner Daughter of J.H. and Laura Oct. 29, 1905 - Dec 1905'. This name appears as 'Laura B.' in the book "Of Grave Importance - Cemeteries of Baxter County, Arkansas" published by the Baxter County Historical Society in 1994. This book used the list as typed by the Cameo Club which is also on microfilm at the Baxter County Library. Some typing differences appear between the original list and the one published in 1994. We will have a new marker made for Lora B. Stiner.
