George and Sarah (Lones) Roberts, both of whom were natives of Perry county, Ohio, and of German ancestry.
George was born March 22, 1807, and passed away July 7, 1880; Sarah was born February 1, 1810, near Rushville, Perry county, and died at her home in Sandusky county, August 10, 1887.
Their marriage took place in February, 1834, and for nearly half a century they fought life's battle together.
They were among the very earliest settlers of Sandusky county, George having come there in 1830 when that section of the county was a vast wilderness. They cleared away the forests and planted orchards, sowed the grains, tilled the soil, made for themselves and children a comfortable home, and lived to see towns spring up around them, churches and schoolhouses built, and all the comforts and conveniences of civilization brought within their reach. For forty-seven years they were valued members of their community, and they died honored and respected by all.
