 My maternal Great Grandmother, Beulah Mae (Price) Roberts (1897-1980) would have been celebrating her 120th birthday on this day. Beulah was born in Bath, Aiken, South Carolina. She was the daughter of Bertrand Campbell Price (1876-after 1922) and Bessie Mae (Eargle) Price (1878-1943).

Interesting how events coincide with one another. Not only did these three happen on one day, but Gil Roberts died on his grandmother Beulah Mae Robert's birthday.
