ROBERTS CEMETERY HISTORY

 

A New Tradition in Family Cemeteries --- NOW OPEN TO THE COMMUNITY

 

History:

Roberts Cemetery is one of Anderson County's oldest cemeteries, rich with historic charm and natural beauty.  Established in 1789, a South Carolina Historic Marker details the early beginnings of Roberts Cemetery.   Roberts Cemetery is the final resting place for many veterans who bravely served this country.  The Cemetery contains graves of veterans dating back to the Revolutionary War.  Other notable graves include:

  • Ann Anderson Hunter - daughter of Revolutionary War veteran and namesake of Anderson County, General Robert Anderson
  • Reverend John Simpson - the first minister of Roberts Presbyterian Church
