I have been searching for any info on Solomon "Sol" Roby for many years. He was my maternal grandfather and died sometime after the census of 1910 and before the 1920 census. I had no info other than his name. Thanks to these wonderful message boards, I recently connected with some distant ROBY cousins and we began the email game sharing and verifying our different thoughts and information. After only 2 weeks, I received an email from one cousin in Utah who found the missing Solomon Roby, his parents & siblings.

1900 Parker County, Texas Census Pct.#5
ROBY, THOMAS J. Age 50 B/Jan 1850 Mississippi
Wife, ELLIE E. Age 43 B/Sept 1856 Arkansas
Daughter, BESSIE D. Age 13 B/ ? 1887 Arkansas
Son, SOLOMON Age 16 B/Jan 1884 Texas
Daughter, SUSAN M. Age 8 B/July 1891 Texas
Son, SEWEL (?) J. Age 4 B/June 1895 Texas
Daughter, PAULINE Age 1 B/Dec 1898 Texas

1910 Soundex Callahan County Texas
ROBY, SOL Age 26 Born 1884
Betty Wife Age 17 Born 1893
Susie Sister Age 16
Sull ? Brother Age 15
Pauline Sister Age 12
Ellen Mother Age 55

This is posted for the benefit of any other ROBY relatives that may find there is a connection to the names listed. Any information would be most appreciated and I would be happy to share whatever info I have....which at this point is somewhat limited. I LOVE THESE MESSAGE BOARDS! "Thanks" to new cousins, Carol, Darlene & Joyce

Need to find out what happened to Sol Roby following the 1910 Census. My maternal grandmother, Betty (Choate) was listed as a "widow" on the 1920 Dexter, Chavez Co. New Mexico Census.

Any info on other family listed would be greatly appreciated.
