Carter Family Cemetery

 

Around 1900, the Carter family moved to Calcasieu Parish after living in Oklahoma, Missouri, and Texas. They settled about seven miles northeast of Starks just inside the modern boundary of Beauregard Parish in an area which has subsequently become known as the Carter Settlement. As the need arose, the family established a cemetery near their residence. To date, eight members of the family have been buried there.

To reach the cemetery, take LA 109 north out of Starks and go about 7 miles to Gene Nelson Road. Take this road to the right and follow it east to the Carter Settlement Road. Turn right and go past the Trahan Loop; the next road to the left should be Carter Cemetery Road. The cemetery is on private property and surrounded by a wire fence.
