4 Roberts brothers to Chickasaw Nation!
Posted by: M. J. Soto Date: June 08, 2000 at 22:54:20
  of 65481

John, William Sion and Felix H. Roberts (brothers) all left Limestone Co., Texas and went to IT (Chickasaw Nation), OK in late 1890. By 1893, another brother, Hamilton Roberts, is listed as living in the Chickasaw Nation. Charles Wesley Roberts (son of Felix H.) went to IT in 1882 at the age of 13!

John returned to Texas and is on 1900 census in Robertson Co.. John died and is buried beside his wife, Mary Adeline Davis Roberts in Old Union Cemetery, Limestone Co., Texas. (John & Felix Roberts married Mary Adeline and Rachel Oletha Davis abt. 1864/65 -- it is not known if Adeline and Rachel were sisters, nor who their parents were or where they were born. Family legend is that Rachel was Choctaw and born in ARK, but not proven. It is not known where/when she died or is buried).

William remained in OK, (has family there still) and is buried in Cresthill Cemetery, Carter Co., OK.

Felix H. remained in OK and married again in 1900. In 1920, he applied for Civil War Pension. Felix is buried in the Rosehill Cemetery, Ardmore, Carter Co., OK. Felix is believed to have had 6 wives, among them Rachel Oletha Davis and Ida (Unk).

I have no information on Hamilton Roberts other than listing in 1893 Limestone Co., Texas publication mentioned above.

I have no information on Charles Wesley Roberts.

Does anyone have any information on these 4 Roberts brothers and the nephew? Does anyone have any information on Mary Adeline and Rachel Oletha Davis? Were there Davis relatives in the Chicasaw Nation when Charles Wesley Roberts went to IT in 1882?
