Roberts Genealogy - Eastern North Carolina and Eastern South 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 Western NC.
My Roberts lineage begins with Rachel Roberts (c1831-c1872) who married William Edwards ca 1846 in Wayne Co., NC. She is a child of Richard Roberts (c1790-1875) and Rebecca Hobson who married ca 1824 in Wayne Co., NC. Richard's parents are not proven but I think he is a son of Henry Roberts (c1775-1831) and his first wife, a Miss Nixon of Wayne Co., NC.
Henry is a son of John Roberts (c1748-1803) and Nancy (---) of Wayne Co., NC. John's parents aren't proven but he may be related to the numerous Roberts that originated in Craven and Carteret Counties.
