When we turn our hearts to our ancestors, something changes inside of us. We feel part of something greater than ourselves~Russell M. Nelson

This Week On My Family History Calendar

March 1-March 7

March 6~
    My maternal 4th Great Grandmother, Martha (Parnold) Brazell (1795-1876 ) died 139 years ago in Richland County, South Carolina. The original burial place for Martha Brazell was in the Macedonia Cemetery on land that is now part of  Ft. Jackson in Columbia, South Carolina. This cemetery and others were relocated in the late 1950's after the land they were on was purchased by the US Government in order to enlarge the base in the 1940's. Old Macedonia Cemetery is now located on Old Percival Road in Columbia.
