 My Great Great Grandparents, George and Hattie Roberts were originally buried on property that is now owned by Fr.Jackson, Richland, SC.
 In 1941 the government bought a large parcel of land from local residents in order to enlarge the Army Base.  Many graves were relocated.  
    George and Hattie Brazell Roberts are now buried in the Macedonia Baptist Church Cemetery in Columbia, Richland ,SC.
