Contributed by Carl W. Dykes, Jul 26, 2007 [cwdykes@charter.net]. Total records = 763.

This cemetery is located adjacent to the Sulphur Springs Baptist Church at 7500 Roper Road, otherwise known as Jefferson County Road 10 about halfway between the City of Trussville and the City of Moody, in the small community of Roper.

Sulphur Springs Cemetery was established in 1866. The first burial was that of an infant child of Asa Benjamin Roper. The present day church was organized in 1906. The cemetery is well maintained and there has been very little vandalism. There are several graves in the old section marked only by field stones.

The cemetery is divided into four sections by the roads within the cemetery itself. Entering the cemetery from the Church parking lot, I have designated the old section of the cemetery on the left as Section A. Section B is on the right and Section C is located in the rear of Section A. Section D is located in the rear of Section B. Section D contains only two graves.

I have utilized The Birmingham News obituaries, Alabama death records, Social Security Death Data Base, WWII U. S. Army Enlistment Records and WWI Draft Registration Cards to supplement or to verify some entries. Entries followed by an asterisk * are from Civil War Soldiers & Sailors System, National Park Service.

I completed transcribing this cemetery on Jul 21, 2007. It is a complete listing of all readable stones in the cemetery.
