THEIR CHILDREN WERE - WILLIAM H. ROBERTS, MARY A. ROBERTS, SARAH T. ROBERTS, LEWIS H. G. ROBERTS, GRIFFIN A. ROBERTS AND JAMES S. ROBERTS

FAMILY LORE SAYS THERE WERE SLAVES BURIED AT THIS SITE ALSO BUT THERE ARE NO OTHER VISIBLE MARKERS; IT IS ON PRIVATE PROPERTY.  On my second visit to this site, I looked around more for other markers and while finding no markers there are several places where field stones appear to have been mounded or placed as if they were marking graves.

This photo was taken at this same spot in 1950.  The man behind the headstone is Thomas Bryan McLean, Sr. He was the great grandson of Sansom Roberts.  

New Photos taken last week of December, 2003 by Nora Benson when she and I were able to revisit the grave site with cornmeal & flour!
