Thanks, Stephen, right now I am having a little trouble tracking where Daniel Roberts came from prior to living in the Oblong.I found one tree on line with this reference "The Roberts family Bible record has Daniel Roberts confused with Thomas Daniel Roberts, born in 1755 and death at age 58, 16 May 1813. This is according to a manuscrcipt witten to Geo. Daniel Roberts on February 3, 1937 by his cousin Daniel A. Roberts, a lawyer in Chicago, ILL."
I do find records under the name of Daniel Roberts that clearly point to the father of Peter J Roberts and some that may or may not.I don't find much that looks promising under the name of Thomas Roberts.I was hoping to get a look at this manuscript to see what was said - it could be that it was evaluated wrong by whomever used it later, no way to know for sure.Daniel A Roberts' quotes family records of Luke Roberts for much of Diadema Agard's branch and between this, the name similarity, and the fact that Luke Roberts migrated westward, I am assuming that Daniel A Roberts of Chicago was descended of this family. He is likely gone now, but I was hoping to track down this manuscript.
I will try next emailing the owner of the tree.Thanks again for your reply.
