Research indicates William C. Roberts, and wife Matilda Millard Roberts, were living in Cass, Guthrie County, Iowa, in 1860. Cass is a township and the nearest town is Panora. It is unknown why he is buried in Des Moines, Iowa, at this time. I was kindly given this memorial to manage, believing this is my ancestor. I continue to do research to make sure this is the correct William Roberts. Following is the information I have compiled on him:
William C. Roberts father was John Roberts and his mother was Phoebe Moyer Roberts. They were married August 7, 1790, in Greene County, Tenneessee.
According to Ancestry family trees, William's siblings are:
Mary Polly Roberts
James Valentine Roberts
William married Matilda Millard and to this union were born:
Ira Jackson Roberts
George Washington Roberts
John Clinton Roberts
James S. Roberts
Elizabeth "Betsy" Jane Roberts
Phoebe E. Roberts
Amanda M. Roberts
Rial Lafayette Roberts
William's death date is taken from the current gravestone photo, and his birth date is calculated from that same gravestone.
Bio. compiled from Census and other records, family trees, and is still being researched. Msg. me if you have additional information.
