|Death: ||Apr. 6, 1912|
No tombstone has been found in the Sonora Cemetery. His obituary from the Devils River News states he would be interred at the Sonora Cemetery.
Not much is known about Cody's early life. There is a Coda Roberts age 9 in the 1860 Burnet County, Texas census, but we can't find him in the 1870 census. It is believed that his family moved to Coryell County where step-mother married Daniel Webster Edwards. Cody had a son William Edward Roberts in 1871, per Ed's obituary which states his half-siblings. Cody married widow Martha Connell Chant in 1879 in Coryell County. The Roberts family moved in the mid-1880's down to Vance, Real, Texas near Martha's mother and brothers where they raised stock. They had four girls and three boys. Their oldest child and youngest child died in Vance during the same week in 1892. The family moved just west over to Cedar Creek, not far down stream from Half Moon Prairie and the Cedar Creek school where the children attended. Cody worked on some county road projects with some sons. We asked Cody's grandson, Clint Crider, what happened to Cody and he stated he died about 1910 in Sonora area. That led us to finding the obituary with the help of JoAnne Palmer of Sutton County. Per his obituary, he had been working on ranches in the Sonora country, although Martha remained back on Cedar Creek.
