      Miscellaneous information: Originally reported in 1989 by Gerald Oldham and described as having 5 graves with uninscribed markers, not enclosed, overgrown and not easily identifiable on the Proctor property (parcel 18726). Oldham described the site as being 100 yards south of Orange County line and 200 yards east (presumably of 15-501) in the woods. Jim and Bev Wiggins examined the site in 2009 after much ground-disturbance had taken place and could not identify the cemetery. A surveyor found no evidence of a cemetery and the Proctor family reported no knowledge of a cemetery on the site. The name "Carter" was written on the original report as the cemetery name in a hand that appears different from Mr. Oldham's. No evidence that a Carter family was associated with the property has been found.

      Last canvassed by: Gerald Oldham. Date: 1989. Bev Wiggins, 31 May 2015.
