Hampton - Carter (African American) Cemetery
Lincoln County,

The name for this cemetery is not known. The name assigned reflects information on engraved markers. This is an old Black cemetery, no longer maintained. The last known burial was in 1968.
It is in poor shape with many sticker vines. Local residents discovered the cemetery when nearby land was being cleared. There are many unmarked graves based on ground depressions, some marked by field stones, and a few with engraved monuments. The cemetery boundries are unmarked except for frontage on N. Henry Fitch Road and undisturbed trees on the other edge.
