|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Carter Family Cemetery was created in 1853 originally in Colleton County. From Lodge proceed 1/2 mile East on SC 217 bearing left on S-15-75 about 1.1 miles. Turn left onto S-15-69 and go to the Bamberg county line. Continue about .2 miles on S-15-69 past the county line to the first dirt driveway on the right. There is no sign identifying the cemetery. Travel about .3 miles on the dirt road to the cemetery on the right in a wooded area. The cemetery is easily seen from the dirt road.
The cemetery has been subject to some vandalism and has not been cared for recently. Some grave stones and border stones are broken. The fence at the front of the cemetery is missing. The last known burial occurred in 1967. The inventory of burials used as a resource came from the book "CEMETERIES OF UPPER COLLETON COUNTY SOUTH CAROLINA" by Evelyn McDaniel, Frazier Bryan, and Gibson Howard Bryan published 1974 by The Florentine Press, Jacksonville, Florida.
