From Greeley Daily Tribune, January 24, 1883

ROBERTS - In Greeley, on Saturday, January 20, of heart disease, Samuel Roberts, aged 68 years.

Samuel Roberts was born in Connecticut in 1814. He was one of the pioneer settlers of Northern Michigan making his home on the St. Clair river, where he lived many years, until 1870 when he came to Greeley with the first colonists. Here he was principally engaged in farming until the past two or three years, when he was compelled by ill-health, to give up all heavy work. He was a member of the Baptist Church and was chosen deacon, which office he held at the time of his death. Mr. Roberts was twice married, his second and a little son surviving him. Two sons and a daughter by his first wife still live in Michigan, the sons being in business at Roberts Landing. Mr. Roberts was highly respected in this community and his sudden death which took place about four o'clock Saturday afternoon while in Mead and Co's warehouse, is greatly regretted by our citizens. The cause of his death was heart disease, from which he had suffered for many years.

The funeral services were held at the Baptist church, and were conducted by Rev. Mr. Cooke, assisted by Revs. Pakard, Merrit and Laird. A handsome floral wreath, prepared by kind friends was placed on the coffin, on which also were Masonic emblems, the deceased being a member of that order. The Rev. Mr. Packard at the request of family, made a brief address, he having been a warm personal friend.
