     William Williams Billie Gunter (1861-1940) came to Limestone County with his parents and half brothers after the Civil War. He and his wife Laura Eudemia Williams (1868-1937) had thirteen children. The first burial on this site took place when their infant son, Evan Gunter, died in 1893. This is the final resting place of several generations of the Gunter family, including Billie and Laura and eight of their children. The Gunter families were active in the religious, business and civic life of the area. Also interred in the family graveyard are Jim B. Rankin and his wife, Grandmother Rankin, who worked for the Gunter family for 25 years. The Gunter Cemetery serves as a chronicle of the pioneers of Limestone County. (2000)
