Some notes and partial contribution
by Victoria Proctor, 1997.
The old Carmichael graveyard is located so close to the Little Pee Dee
Presbyterian Church that it is often mistakenly referred to as "the old section"
of the church cemetery. It is, for instance, listed this way in the Dillon County
cemetery book (Bicentennial Project).
When I first visited the graveyard in 1979, it seemed a very short walk from
the Little Pee Dee Church to the old graveyard located back in the woods.
I am told that the area has been timbered since my last visit, and that seems such a
shame. The canopy of trees provided welcome shade to the old graveyard on a hot summer's
day, and seemed a peaceful setting for the early Scots settlers who are buried there.
Many of the original grave markers were wooden and no more than a few stumps remained
when I visited. There were perhaps 19-20 tombstones, some of which seemed so ancient
I couldn't imagine anything earlier.
A portion of the old graveyard, copied by me in 1979, contributed 1997:

Jo Church Dickerson & John H. Church. This cemetery has been heavily
vandalized in recent years. The transcription was done in the mid-1980's.
Many of these stones have since been destroyed. According to Roderick Leland
Carmichael in "The Scottish Highlander Carmichaels of the Carolinas", this
is the location of the graves of Dugald Carmichael (reference D) and his
wife, Flora Munro Carmichael. No trace remains of their stones. - djck]
