Roberdeau Family Cemetery
The Roberdeau family home "Royal Oaks" was located on the NE corner of the present-day intersection of Braddock Rd and Lee Hwy (Route 29). All that is left of the large house is the old stone wall which can be seen along Braddock Road. Inside the entrance in the wall is a densely overgrown and heavily wooded area strewn with old tires, bottles, limbs and branches. One large old oak tree stands near the center of the property. According to a for sale sign, there are 4.4 acres at the site, zoned for commercial use. (1997) Royal Oaks was built by Newton Keene, Sr. between 1765 and 1790, according to an article in the 15 Oct 1987 issue of Centre View. The house was eventually owned by Edmund Denny Roberdeau, wife of James Milligan Roberdeau. James and Martha Roberdeau are said to be buried on the grounds of Royal Oaks.
