It appears that William's headstone was once standing, so the "McCarter" probably appears on the back. William and his son, Will, are buried in plots 1-41-A and 2-41-A. William A. McCarter was born in 1842 and died in 1914 at the age of 71. His son, James William 'Will' McCarter, was born 1885 and died in 1915 at the age of 29.

William's brother, James, and William's son, George, are buried just beyond in plots 11-41-A and 12-41-A. They have no headstones. James P. McCarter was born in 1848 and died in 1920 at the age of 72. George McCarter was born 1872 and died 1925 at age 51.
