Carter County, located in the upper portion of east Tennessee next to North Carolina, was created in 1797 and named in honor of Landon Carter, treasurer of Washington and Hamilton Districts of North Carolina, speaker of the State of Franklin senate and Secretary of State for the State of Franklin. These tombstone inscriptions collected by the workers in the W. P. A. era contains some of those stones that have been lost or destroyed by developers in more modern times. In the late 1930s little vandalism had taken place, so these have become a very good source of burial places for many of the older citizens of the county.
