  • In the summer of 2010 a wind storm uprooted trees & bushes and other landscaping in the Coulter cemetery. Tombstones were knocked over or moved from their bases. Today, the cemetery is again beautiful. Restored by volunteers donating pine trees, shrubs, time, labor, and machinery for clean-up and plantings. At that time, a covered plot guide was placed on the grounds to help visitors easily find the graves.



  • This burial list & information was compiled by Sharyl Ferrall from obituaries, gravestone inscriptions, SSDI, census & marriage records & newspaper articles. You can help to make it an accurate and complete list of burials. Do you know of a burial in the Coulter cemetery that isn't listed? Dates? Corrections?
