Nicholas James "Nick" Roberts
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 14, 1834
Death: Feb. 16, 1920

Note: birth date on headstone is Apr. 4, 1838, however on his Confederate Veteran Questionnaire located at the Arkansas History Commission, Nick states his date of birth is Apr. 14, 1834. The birth year he gives on the questionnaire is consistent with corresponding dates of birth on census records where he is listed. He also gives his full name as Nicholas James Roberts.

Nick served alongside his brother Jesse in Co. G, 5th South Carolina Infantry Regiment during the War Between the States. His first wife Lucinda Jane Carson was the sister of his brother Jesse's wife, Martha Carson. Thus their children were "double first cousins".
