In Response To: Re: Sarah (Hammond) Roberts 1822-1876 ()
Thank you for what you have posted! I will certainly need to print it out and study it and use it to try and help uncover Sarah's (therefore my) family history.
Willis Roberts was the son of Etheldred (Dred) Roberts and Dicey (Dyea) Locklear (I don't anything about Dicey except her name). Etheldred was the son of Ishmael Roberts who was the son of Margaret Roberts (all FPOC). I know that my Roberts line lived in a couple of different counties in North Carolina, Northampton and Chatham being two that I can think of off the top of my head (not looking at notes right now). A few of the names you mention in regard to the Roberts surname are also names in my Roberts family (Kinchen, Elias, Ransom, et cetera).
I have spoken with another of the family researchers in regard to the Roberts to see if they had found anything that might lead to more clues about who Sarah's parents were. So far, doesn't seem like it. I think they were more facsinated with the Roberts line--smile.
I don't know if it would help to post the names of Willis' siblings (or other family members) or the names of Willis and Sarah's children, but I can do that also.
In Indiana, they lived in Orange, Rush, Vigo and a couple of other counties. A number of them are buried in Lost Creek, Indiana.
Thanks again, you have certainly given me some things to study and I sincerely appreciate it.
