Carter County Cemetery Index

"One of the sure ways to tell whether someone is from the mountains, or someone is a modern middle class American is to ask,
'Do you know where you're going to be buried?
Many mountain people know where they're going to be buried.
They're going to be buried back in the family cemetery."
- "The Appalachians" documentary, 2005

General location & Comments
Adams (1) Located near Rt. 1, mouth of Johns Run.
Adkins Photos contributed by Joel M. Carter & Don Meenach
Adkins Cemetery on Everman Creek (GPS: 38 degrees, 22.195 minutes N; 83 degrees, 00.572 minutes W, 685 feet elevation)--Stewart Road intersects Everman Creek Road from the left as one drives up Everman Creek Road. Almost directly across from this intersection, Adkins Cemetery lies on a slope on the right side of Everman Creek Road. It lies within 75 feet or so of Everman Creek Road and is easily visible from the road. Map

Blevins Cemetery on Route 7 (GPS: 38 degrees, 23.498 minutes N; 82 degrees, 58.858 minutes W, 916 feet elevation)--Blevins Hollow lies on the north side (or the on the right going away from Grayson) of Route 7 and is just across Route 7 from Everman Creek Church. Don’t be confused; we’re talking about a different Everman Creek than that mentioned above. This would be maybe 6 so miles from Route 7s intersection with Routes 1 & 7. Follow Blevins Hollow all the way to the head of the hollow. Joann Blevins & husband own the property where the cemetery lies. It might be good to advise them of intent to visit the cemetery. The road narrows and turns 90 or more degrees to the left at the far end of the mobile home. Follow the road all the way to the top of the hill. The cemetery is at the end of the road. Map

Burnett Cemetery at Iron Hill (GPS: 38 degrees, 24.494 minutes N; 83 degrees 01.580 minutes W, 752 feet elevation)--Follow the AA Highway northwest away from Grayson. The AA roughly follows Route 7 in places. Just before reaching the left turn for Iron Hill Road you’ll see on your right a straight portion of old Route 7. Tygarts Creek Road exits to the right off this and old 7 ends at a gate just beyond the turn for Tygarts Creek Road. Drive through the gate and follow the gravel road to the top of the hill. The cemetery is at the end of the road.

Burton Cemetery on Lower Stinson (GPS: 38 degrees, 20.249 minutes N; 82 degrees, 53.058 minutes W, 746 feet elevation)--The cemetery is approximately 4 miles east of Grayson on US 60. You’ll pass the old Grayson JCs fairgrounds on your left. Approximately ½ mile farther you’ll pass Stinson Community Church on the hillside on your right. Approximately another ½ mile you’ll pass Stinson Church of Christ on your left just across Stinson Creek. Approximately 1/8 mile further you’ll see Dean Green’s junkyard on the right. Directly on the east side of Dean’s, on the right, there’s a very narrow paved road that climbs the hill. You will see the cemetery on your left before you reach the house. Map
Burton on Canoe Run Photos contributed by Joel M. Carter & Don Meenach
Burton Cemetery on Canoe Run (GPS: 38 degrees, 18.644 minutes N; 82 degrees, 53.309 minutes W, 752 feet elevation)--This cemetery is on Canoe Run just off Upper Stinson Road. Upper Stinson Road is perhaps 2.5 miles east of Grayson on US 60. It turns to the right, just after the bridge, and just before you’d come to the old Grayson JCs fairgrounds. Canoe Run is on the right perhaps 2 miles up Upper Stinson Road. As soon as Canoe Run crosses Stinson Creek and begins to climb the hill, turn to the left through the metal gate. There is a concrete angel on the left side of the drive just inside the gate. Take the first right and climb to the top of the hill. The cemetery is atop the hill. Map

Carter on Carter Branch Photos contributed by Joel M. Carter & Don Meenach
Carter Cemetery on Carter Branch (Beckwith Branch Road) (GPS: 38 degrees, 20.414 minutes N; 82 degrees, 53.983 minutes W, 621 feet elevation)--Approximately three miles east of Grayson on US 60, Stinson Community Church lies on the hillside on the right. Just beyond the church, on the left, turn onto Beckwith Branch Road and cross Stinson Creek. Approximately ¼ mile up Beckwith Branch Road you’ll pass a barn on your left. Just after the barn the road will rise slightly and you’ll pass a driveway for a house on the top of the hill on your right. Just after this drive, on your right, you will see the Carter Cemetery on the slope. Follow the cemetery drive and take the left fork. Map
