Birth: Jan. 10, 1894
Hoods Crossroads
Blount County
Alabama, USA
Death: May 25, 1974
Alabama, USA

Daughter of James R Caudle and Cornelia Jenkins Caudle. Her mother died when she was only 3 years old. We have not yet found her mothers burial place. She married William Martin Roberts on March 5, 1911 in Altoona, Etowah, Alabama. They lived in Walker County, Alabama for several years and then purchased a home with several acres of land on Lanett Avenue in the Sandusky area of Jefferson County. This home has since been torn down and replaced with a new home where their youngest daughter Peggy Roberts Crauswell lives. William was placed in a nursing home for a while before his death. He had emphysema. Dora stayed with him in the nursing home but left as soon as he passed away and moved in with some of her children. While they were there she would save the "jelly packets" from breakfast each morning and would give them to us when we would come to visit. We licked them like a lollypop. She knew how to keep us quiet. She was a very strong woman who loved fishing. She would take us fishing from the peir or from the boat in Gadsden Alabama. We loved our Granny and we miss her.

This was my Great Grandmother. I remember her well, I was 11 years old when she passed away. I don't remember her daughter Jeannette, my grandmother as well because she passed away when I was only 5.

Granny Roberts, pray for us. We miss you so very much. I'll search forever until I find the resting place of your mother. I promised that I would and I'm still looking.
