Charles ROBERTS is believed to have been born in 1780 in South Carolina.
He had a brother, William, born in GA 1780-90, who married Frances CLAYTON; they had ten children, but we only have the name of the oldest son, another Charles.This one son is the only one of this household who can be located after the 1830 census.What happened to William & Frances CLAYTON ROBERTS and the other 9 children after 1830?
Both brothers are listed in their separate households in Monroe Co., GA 1830 census.One family researcher notes that they had side-by-side plantations in either SC or GA.
Charles (b. SC) went to Texas 1826-33 with his 5 children and his nephew, Charles.His wife is not named on any documents we have located as yet.The 1830 census shows Charles with his 5 children and 2 adult females, one probably his mother or mother-in-law.By the 1835 Sabine Community, Texas census, Charles is listed with only his 5 children and his nephew, Charles.Who was Charles' wife and what happened to her and the older female after 1830?
There is also a Rebecca Roberts who married Richard SHIPP.Richard Shipp and Charles Roberts were administrators of the estate of Elijah LAW, whom we believe may have also been married to a Roberts.We believe Rebecca was sister of William and Charles.
