This cemetery is located across the highway from Unity Baptist Church,4240 Walnut Grove Rd., Roebuck, SC 29376, just off I-26 at Exit 35 (Woodruff). This area is between Woodruff, SC and Walnut Grove (which is served by the Roebuck Post Office, hence the address & ZIP code). This church was formed in 1818, but was relocated to its present place in 1885. The old cemetery is about a mile or so down the road toward Walnut Grove about a half mile back up in the woods. See "Old Unity Baptist Church".
Unity Baptist Church was formed in 1818 about a mile or so north east of its present location. It burned in the last 1800s and rebuilt at its current location in 1885. In time it abandoned the care of its original cemetery, which became known as "Old" Unity Baptist Cemetery. The one lying across the highway from the church today is known as "New" Unity Baptist Cemetery, even though the name of the church remained the same: Unity Baptist.
