When I first copied the names in this cemetery, back in the early 1970, we had to walk to the
cemetery from the wire gap and iron gate. Ora Bullard Corner went with Retta Linzy Smigala and
me to show us the way. Ora told us of various family members that are buried there and some do
not have head stones. There are signs of unmarked graves. Also, in compiling data on the
Boney-Stutts Families, I found others that are buried there. Note that I have used full names
if possible. To view pictures of these tombstones go here Carter Cemetery NAMES COMMENTS WHITE SECTION BAGWELL, Booker Son of P. V. & E. J.
