Searching for information on George R. Roberts born Kentucky in 1821, married Nancy Jones 14 Oct, 1839 in Calloway County, Kentucky. 1880 Census shows them in Pigeon Township, Baxter County, Arkansas. Their children were: Willian H., Aron F.,Clarette E.(my Greatgreatgrandmother),Charles W.,Martha E., and Nancy F.
1840 Census shows them in Knights Township, IL.
Clarette E.(Ellen)married John W. Stapleton born 1838 in Arkansas, died 1913 Mountain Home, Baxter County, Arkansas.
Their children were: Lulu, Charlie, Allie and Jessie Richard, my Grandfather, born Mountain Home, Arkansas 1895, died April 21, 1963 Webb City, Jasper County, Missouri.
Don't know if we might be related, but my great-great-grandfather was John A Roberts (born in Tennessee) who married who married Sarah Boziarth from Taney County, Missouri. They had Louisa Eudora Roberts, James Wesley Roberts (my great grandfather), Geoge C. Roberts who married Hester A Sims, and Waymon L. Roberts. George C and Hester are both buried in the Minnow Creek Cemetery, Johnson County, Arkansas as well as their son John W. Roberts. My understanding is my Roberts came from Tennessee and Kentucky up through Arkansas to Taney County, Missouri, with some of them getting off at Arkansas and staying there.
I am over at my daughter's this week at Oronogo. I'm at cell phone 459-6922 if you think we might be related off in the distance. Send me an e-mail at email@example.com
