Militia Man ~ Christopher McCarter

My 4th Great Grand Uncle, Christopher McCarter lies beside his wife, Hannah Adams, in the historic Bethel Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Clover, South Carolina.

He was born the son of Abraham McCarter and Elizabeth Carson, my fifth great grandparents, in Pennsylvania, in the year , 1758.

Christopher was a brother to David L. McCarter, born 1757.

David was my fourth great grandfather.

Christopher married Hannah around 1782 and they had at least ten children.

Hannah was the daughter of Robert Adams and his wife, Elizabeth.

The marker that stands over his grave is remarkably easy to read, still.

The headstones are in neat rows, standing straight,

in remembrance of the souls long gone here.

Bethel Cemetery has quite a number of heros listed among her departed.

There is a monument to the Revolutionary soldiers standing at the side of the cemetery.
Christopher’s name is listed with the others that served their country proudly.
