Rock Springs Miner, Dec 10, 1950

Funeral services for James H. Roberts, 53, of 825 Center street were held Saturday at the L.D.S. church. Bishop William Gibbs conducted the rites and burial was in Mountain View cemetery. Mr. Roberts died of a heart attack early Wednesday morning at his home. He had not been well for a week, but his death was sudden and unexpected.

Born July 4, 1897, in Trumdon Grange, County Durham, England, he came to Rock Springs with his parents, the late Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Roberts, when he was nine years old and had since resided here. He was educated in the city schools and was in the employ of the Union Pacific Coal company. He had been a member of the city's volunteer fire department for 30 years.

Survivors are his wife, Dorcas D. Roberts whom he married Aug. 11, 1931, in Laketown, Utah; three sons and one daughter, James W., John W., Eugene D. and Dorcas E. Roberts, all at home; one sister, Mrs. Reuben Meacham of Rock Springs; six brothers, Percy Roberts of Rawlins, Hugh Roberts of Rangely, Colo., Isaac Jr., Arthur, Gilbert and Thomas Roberts, all of Rock Springs.

The six brothers served as pallbearers.
