265    WAKE BAPTIST GROVE CHURCH (Garner)

      Location - on Hwy. 70, next to Wyatt Quarles Seed Co., close to the intersection of 70 and Vandora Springs Rd. (SR-2711) in Garner, St. Mary's Twp.

      Coordinates: 35d 42m 45.2s N; 78d 37m 29.7s W Click here for Google maps

      The cemetery is on the north side of the road. It is partially hidden by a small service station. Drive in and park. There are many unmarked graves and many with funeral home markers, including a long row containing about 70 funeral home markers which merely state "unknown" and note they have been moved from another location.

      Wake County land records describe the owner as Grove Church although there is not a church at the 1 acre cemetery property.

      About 70 unmarked graves were moved to this cemetery in 1995. There is no information where they came from. The markers are fairly close to each other. Most have numbers and are marked "Unknown". #383 is marked Stellar Hall, #425 Betty Allen.

      Surveyed and photographed by Shirley and Gordon Olson on April 19, 2009.

      Notes 2009: The original church name was Piney Grove Baptist Church located just north of the intersection of Garner Road & Creech Road. Thomas Haywood bought one acre from Henry Fort.
      The church name was changed to Wake Baptist Grove Church; see Deed Book 128, pg 802 dated 21 Dec 1894. (note provided by Mrs. Deborah Scott Spencer).
