Roberts Genealogy - Western North Carolina

Welcome to my Roberts web pages. I have another Roberts line, not related to this one. Click here for more on the Roberts of Eastern NC and Eastern SC.

My most recent Roberts ancestor is Mary "Polly" Roberts (c1780s-1840s) who married John Moody before ca 1803 either in Surry Co., NC or in Georgia. Note that we have yet to prove she was a Roberts but circumstantial evidence strongly suggests it.

If Mary is indeed a Roberts, then she is almost certainly a child of Olive Branch Roberts (c1745-1827) and Sarah Woodson. Olive lived in Surry Co., NC and Wilkes Co., GA. His parents are unknown.


Roberts DNA Project - Use DNA testing to break down your genealogical brick walls and find out which genetic branch of the family you are part of. Click link for details. I'm not involved in the Roberts project, but I highly recommend it.  No one from my line has tested yet.

Roberts is the 43rd most common surname in America. (Source: Name Statistics)
