Carson's Creek Baptist Church Cemetery
Survey by Philip Underwood Sheppard
 
 

 

Carson's Creek Baptist Church Cemetery is located within the gated  community of Connestee Falls. The gate is closed to non-residents but the East Fork gate is open on Sundays for church members. The small white church is in a beautiful setting beside a lake. The cemetery faces northeast and is on the northeast side of the church right on the road that passes by the church.

The cemetery is very well kept. Apparently, funeral home markers have been added to existing graves where there was no information or the information was being/had been lost. There are 93+ graves. The earliest death date found is 1903. This survey was completed November 26, 1998, by Philip Underwood-Sheppard.

Starting furthest from the church..
