From Highway 19E in Carter County take Roaring Creek Road to the right. Follow Roaring Creek until you come to Peters Cemetery Road to the left. This is a winding road which will dead end at the cemetery on top of the ridge. The cemetery is well kept and fenced and it is in a spectacular location on top of the ridge overlooking a beautiful valley. This cemetery was transcribed during April of 2010. Items in parenthesis are from other sources. Items with quotation marks are actually on the cemetery stone. There are a number of unmarked stones in the cemetery.
