New Poplar Springs United Church of Christ Cemetery
Wake County, North Carolina

6115 Old Stage Rd.
Garner N.C.

Lat: 3541'44"N, Lon: 7839'10"W

Contributed by Shirley Olson, Jul 25, 2001, [shirley32olson@yahoo.com]. Total records = 191.

Directions from Raleigh, N.C.: South on Hwy 401 about 8 miles, angle left on to Old Stage Rd. and continue south about 2 miles to Poplar Springs Church on the left.

The old cemetery is along side of the church on Old Stage Rd., the newer and larger cemetery is hidden behind the church up a paved road that runs about 100 yards to the burial locations.

This is an African American church and cemetery, located in a formerly rural area which is now a suburban neighborhood. This is an old church, founded in 1871, a few years after the end of the Civil War. From humble beginnings in a brush arbor the church has grown and flourished and is now a magnificent brick edifice. Alongside and joined to the large new church built in 1996 is the beautiful old brick church built in 1931 which replaced the small frame church that preceded it.

This is the newer cemetery behind the church and is not really in good condition, Many graves have only funeral home markers which are easily removed or destroyed. There are a number of unmarked graves and many with no birth and death dates.

I have transcribed from a survey of the cemetery using headstone readings, done by myself and Gordon Olson, in July of 2001.
