Robards Family Genealogy Forum
My name is John T. Roberts Jr. We have been tracing our line for a few years now and just recently had some break throughs. One was that our name was originally Robards. A John Robards born 1772(possiby Kentucky) married an Abigail (maiden name unknown). Children were John Jr. (1803), Nancy (1804), Joseph (1810), Richard (1813) and possibly an Albert (1797?). We are sure they spent time in the Louisville area. They purchased land in Jennings County Indiana and moved their in 1819. Our family moved to Johnson County next and from their to Illinois a Sylvester Roberts, son of John Jr. Then his son Francis Marion Roberts moved to Missouri and then to Ottawa County, Oklahoma. His son, Charles Raymond Roberts, was a circuit preacher their. His son was my grandfather, Joseph Albert Roberts, then my dad John Thomas Roberts.
