Guide to the Original Cemetery: Directions from Hebron Presbyterian Church to the Original Cemetery-(Because of the lack of landmarks, it is far better to take someone with you who knows the location of the Original Cemetery. Note that the nearest resident objects to people parking in their front yard when you visit the Cemetery, so be sure to park along the shoulder of the road.) Turn left on the paved road that passes by Hebron Presbyterian Church. Continue .7 mile until this road ends into Bold Spring Road. Take a right and continue 1.6 miles. Take a right on the paved road #326 and proceed .7 mile to the modular home on the right. Park on the side of the road beyond this house and walk the fence line into the woods. Walk through the woods for about one-half mile. You will see the Original Cemetery in a field. The graves are surrounded by a chain-link fence. -- James McCarter, Sr. is the head of the McCarter family of Hebron. He came from VA, possibly Rockbridge or Augusta Co., to Wilkes Co. GA before Nov. 1786 when he received a grant of land in Wilkes Co. During the next ten years, he acquired additional parcels including a large plantation on the present Banks and Franklin County line. On this plantation he reared his family, cultivated his crops, established his hat factory, supported his church and was laid to rest. Groves Cartledge indicates in his "Sketches" that James McCarter served in the Revolutionary War, but efforts to document his service have been unsuccessful.
