Birdie Mae Bell Roberts was born May 1, 1899, the second child of David Clayton Bell, Sr. and Edna Josephine Downs Bell in Clyde, Bryan County, Georgia. She had ten siblings. On January 31, 1920, she married Willie N. Roberts, and they had three sons, James Willie Roberts, Jay Harold Roberts, Sr., and Colon Hosteen Roberts, Sr. Birdie Mae died of heart failure at the age of 75 on February 3, 1975 in Bryan County.

Her ancestry was English, Welsh, and--through the Bell surname--Native American (Lumbee).
Thanks so much to all the Bell family researchers for much of this information. Any errors, however, are mine alone. Please go to the "edit" link on this site with any corrections or additions. I hope someone will add a photo of Birdie Mae. If a closer relative than I would like to manage this burial site, please let me know.
