Re: [REUBENROBERTS] Anderson County, TN – Notes regarding Thomas Roberts, William Roberts, and Moses Roberts

Thanks so much for your input and all the work you have done. I have a
Reuben Roberts but he was b0rn in NC. I will keep searching. I am
searching for a Hugh Roberts who was born about 1780 and lived in
Pasquotank, NC. No luck so far.
Again, thanks.

First, thank you for continuing to research this Roberts line. You are
fortunate to have easy access to the information.

Here is what I have for what it is worth:
I do have a Moses Roberts as brother of Reuben Roberts. The only source I
have is “Generations of Reuben” by Laney Roberts and I know that might be
controversial.

As to Thomas Roberts, I have him born Mar 3, 1788; married to (1st)in 1809
Mary “Jenny” Comer, (2nd) Polly A Conklin; died in Lucas County, Iowa July
2, 1867. I found him listed in the 1840 Warren County Tennessee census page
350 and in the 1850 Mason County Illinois census page 161, dwelling 250.

Regarding William Roberts, do you believe this William is the brother of
Thomas and therefore the son of Reuben Roberts? I do have a William Roberts
as son of Thomas but have his birth af after 1820 making him no more than 11
at the time of the indenture.

Best regards,
Louminda Roberts Torbett

Roberts, William Roberts, and Moses Roberts

Hello to my fellow Reuben Roberts Researchers — this message board has
been very quiet for some time now……….
After having spent considerable time researching the WillIam Roberts line in
Warren County, TN, a few months back I began to concentrate my efforts
looking into Reuben Roberts and family in Anderson County, TN (1800 – 1817).
I live in Anderson County and find myself fortunate to have easier access to
information than many researchers as I am closer to the courthouse and the
East Tennessee Historical Society in Knoxville. One of the things I was
hoping to accomplish is to identify where Reuben & family lived while in
Anderson County. I am getting very close but still need to complete a few
title searches before I can confirm the location.

In doing this research I have found a couple of references to members of
Reuben’s family and of his in-laws, the Asher/Ashurst families. These
tidbits prompt me to post this message in an effort to share some of what
I’ve found and see if others have input or comments that will benefit us
all.

I. Thomas Roberts — In looking at some of the 1999 posts on this board
there was a bit of discussion around Thomas Roberts – who he was married to,
did he move on to Iowa, etc? Per exchange of notes posted in May through
June 1999 from Sheryl Fischer and Ken Robertson, I’m not sure if these
issues were ever clarified.

There is an Anderson County Deed dated 19 October 1830 from Thomas Roberts
to Richard Andrews witnessed by Reuben Roberts and John Roberts. This was
apparently done as a result Thomas leaving his wife Elizabeth and
children and his subsequent move to White County (See Chapter LXIV – Private
Acts Passed at the First Session of the General Assembly of the State of
Tennessee, 1833. See also “Tennessee Divorces 1797 – 1858” , Taken from 750
Legislative Petitions and Acts, by Bamman and Spero. Richard Andrews was
married to Martha Ashurst, daughter of John Ashurst, who was a brother of
Reuben Roberts wife Milly (i.e., Martha Andrews/Ashurst was a first cousin
to Thomas Roberts).

Question – Could this earlier marriage of Thomas Roberts to Elizabeth
Roberts answer some of the questions raised in 1999? The divorce mentions
children of the marriage – does anyone have any information on them? The
last name of Elizabeth?

—————————————————————————-

II. William Roberts – There is another Anderson County deed dated 21
September 1831 naming William Roberts and Thomas Roberts as heirs of John
Ashurst to Daniel Daugherty for the land of of the estate of the recently
deceased John Ashurst.
“This Indenture made the 21st day of September in the year of our Lord One
Thousand Eight hundred and Thirty One between William Roberts & Thomas
Roberts of the Countys of Warren and also of the County of White and State
of Tennessee of the one part and Daniel Daugherty of the County of Anderson
and State aforesaid of the other part. Witnesseth that the said William
Roberts & Thomas Roberts for and in consideration of the sum of one Dollar
to them in hand paid by the said Daniel Daugherty the receipt whereof is
hereby acknowledged hath and by these presents doth grant bargain sell and
confirm unto the said Daniel Daugherty his heirs and assigns forever the
undivided part of Two several tracts of land belonging to the heirs of John
Ashurst deceased. We William Roberts & Thomas Roberts being heirs of the
said John Ashurst deceased at law one tract of One hundred and six acres of
land being the land where the said John Ashurst deceased formerly lived
{land description follows} …………”
This deed was witnessed by Joseph M. Ashurst (brother of Martha
Andrews) and James Roberts. This deed is significant because it is evidence
of the link between the Reuben Roberts/Milly Asher family and William
Roberts of Warren County, TN. This William Roberts is named as an heir to
John Ashurst (along with Thomas Roberts) and noted as being from Warren
County, TN, not White County (Thomas Roberts was living in White County in
1831).

I am posting a PDF version of this deed at
https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=6c96c11afadfdc92&sa=356416004#!/?cid=1012221a
9857853b&sc=documents&uc=1&id=1012221A9857853B%21110.

I have updated my previous notes regarding William Roberts to reflect this
information in the same site.

—————————————————————————-
—————————————————————————-
—————————————————————————-
————————–

III. Moses Roberts – In looking at the Anderson County deeds I find
references to Moses Roberts as living very close to where Reuben was
apparently living. Example, The Grantee in the 1831 deed noted above, Daniel
Daughtery, is found in the 1830 Anderson County census listed with one
household between him and Moses Roberts. This Ashurst land is near where
Reuben & clan lived. I have seen notes on the internet (uncornfirmed) and
even on this messageboard about Reuben Roberts having a brother named Moses.

Does anyone have information regarding a brother of Reuben Roberts named
Moses?

Re: [REUBENROBERTS] Thomas Roberts and Eliza

This could be the break in my brick wall.  I have a Thomas Robert m. to Eliza(LNU).  They had a daughter Sarah(my great grandmother) b.Sept. 24,1847 TN, m. Henderson Hill Aug 16,1870 McLean Co.KY, d. July 16.1932 Calhoun,McLean Co.,KY.  That’s about the extent of my info.  I don’t know the names of any siblings.  I was told by family that they lived in McMinnville,TN area which is in Warren Co.  I never could find a census where a Thomas and Eliza were together so if divorced wouldn’t.
 
For years I was looking for a Robards since the family said that was her name…………..apparently pronounced Robards but spelled Roberts on her death cert. and marriage license.
 
I tried accessing your site but haven’t been able to,something about technical problems……………..I’ll keep trying.

Re: [REUBENROBERTS] William Roberts Son of Reuben

Robert,

Phil is my 2nd cousin. Our ancestor, James Roberts (b. ca 1807, d. 1850),
was the oldest son of William Roberts, Jr and Sarah Walling. We are related
to the Surry Co., NC Roberts family but a few more generations back and
exactly how remains to be established.

Re: [REUBENROBERTS] William Roberts Son of Reuben

Randy;

Thanks for the input ! ? I will update this document and repost for access for those researching this family. ?I have already made a couple of updates to the original post — minor things, but things that add additional support.

I have watched the Roberts DNA project for some time now. I cannot particpate as I am not a direct male descendant. Phil Roberts is a descendant of James Roberts of White County and I had been in contact with him several times. ?Can you confirm that Family genealogy No 51 (shown below) is in fact, your William Roberts of White County as the son of William Roberts, Sr.??(b. 7 Feb 1770 Surry Co., NC) ? If it is, then it would make perfect sense in that William Roberts jr. and James Roberts of White County were brothers.

Hi Robert,

I want to add my full agreement with your notes. I am a descendant of
William Roberts and Sarah Walling of Lee Co., VA and White Co., TN. After a
number of years of research, I reached the same conclusion that you did –
the William Roberts family of White Co., TN had been inadvertently combined
with Reuben Roberts family in the “Generations of Reuben”.

I’d like to expand on your discussion of author Laney Roberts statement
that:

“Two sets of Wallings are on record. One set resided in Lee Co and Scott
Counties in Southeast Virginia and another resided in Hawkins Co.,
Tennessee. The names: Elisha, John, James, Thomas and Joseph appear in the
records of each group of Wallings.”

The Wallings of Lee Co., VA and Hawkins Co., TN were without a doubt the
same family. They lived right on the border between Lee County, VA and
what’s now Hancock Co., TN. If you consult a modern map and locate
Blackwater, VA and Kyle’s Ford, TN, you can quickly understand the
situation. The home of one of my ancestors was literally split by the VA/TN
border and people in this area often show up in records for both
counties/states during the same time period.

In further support of your position, a descendant of William Roberts and
Sarah Walling has participated in the Roberts Surname DNA Project (kit
22151) and has matched other Roberts who’s ancestors lived in Lee & Grayson
Co.’s, VA and in Surry Co., NC. I do not believe that a Reuben Roberts
descendant has participated in the project as of yet. If there Reuben
descendants in the direct male line (i.e., male descendants with the surname
Roberts) on this list, I strongly encourage you to join the Roberts DNA
project at: http://home.comcast.net/~libpjr1/robertsdna.htm#Join.

Thanks for documenting and sharing your research, Robert.

Best Regards,

Randy Walker

Re: [REUBENROBERTS] William Roberts Son of Reuben

Randy
Thank you for your research and insight.
BTW, does anyone have a pdf or copy of “Generations of Reuben”? I only have
a few chapters and would be interested in having a full copy.

Best regards,
Louminda Roberts Torbett
