The Rev. Egan Gerndon of near Centralia, conducted the service. Burial was made in the cemetery adjoining the church.

Mr. Carter was born in Nichols County, Kentucky, and when a young man, came to this county and settled on a farm southwest of here. He lived there until about four years ago when he came to Mexico. His wife who was Miss Martha Maffett, died several years ago.

Mr. Carter is survived by three daughters, Mrs. Effie Thomas, Gillette Wyo., Mrs. Tom Squires, of near Centralia and Mrs. Ed Beatty of near Mexico. He also leaves twelve grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

Mrs. Jesse H. Carter Dies Wed.

Mrs. Jesse Carter, 78 years of age, died at her home near Gant, Wednesday morning about 7 o'clock, from a stroke of paralysis. She was ill only a short time, having been stricken with paralysis about 2 o'clock on Tuesday morning.

The funeral will be held at Salt River Church, Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock. The Rev. David Mayes of Centralia will officiate. The body will be buried in Salt River Cemetery.

Mrs. Carter was the wife of Jesse Carter, one of the most prominent citizens of the county. She was a beautiful Christian character and a member of the Christian church for many years. Her death will sadden the hearts of not only her close neighbors, but all who knew her.

Besides a husband, she is survived by the following children: Mesdames T. Squires, Ed Beatty, Effie Dalby and John Thomas, all of the Gant neighborhood and C. C. Carter of Los Angeles, Calif.

The Ledger joins many friends in extending sympathy to the bereaved.

Rose Sears d 23 Aug 1927  aged 65 yrs.

This was right next to Jesse H. and Martha A. Carter. The stones were fairly new, with the same design. Rose Sears was just a little smaller. Thought there might be a connection.

This next one was on the other side of your Carters. One tall stone with J.N. Carter on the east side and Martha J. Carter on the west side. Didn't say how related. One of the census you sent in your first posting, had J.N. Carter living with Jesse Carter and was a brother. My feeling is this is

Jesse's brother and mother???

The above stone has been repaired. Appeared to have been vandalized several places, but in good shape. Could see the glue, or whatever they use. Cindy
