Edward Roberts

Welcome to The
Roberts, Campbell, and Moorehead Family Website

Thus far, we have traced our Roberts family ancestry only as far back as Edward Roberts. We now believe that he moved to Gethsemane, Arkansas from North Carolina. We also believe that his father was White (Caucasian).We were not able to find out exactly its roots, as there are no records, see. We did and searched wherever possible.

We currently have no information on his wife, Mary (July 2010).

We believe that Mary & Edward Roberts had nineteen children, of which eight died at childbirth or very young.

The other eleven children (in the order of their births?) are:

  1. Rosetta
  2. James Clifton (aka, Bud)
  3. Elijah
  4. Sidney
  5. Katie
  6. Ginny
  7. Annavesta
  8. Alice
  9. Josephine (aka, Josey)
  10. Lucy
  11. Emma

Marriages and Children

  • Rosetta married Zackrey Trotter and they produced two children: Mary (4), and Osby.

  • James married Mariah Mathews and they produced five children: Rosetta, Jewell (8), Junetta, James Clifton Jr. (6), and Odell.

  • Elijah married Aretha White and they produced eleven children: Hattie Mae, Lovell (aka, Dutch) (7), Ivory Lorenzo (3), Kattie Mae (8), Andrew Jackson (aka, Brother) (4), Anna Lee (aka, Sister) (4), Leon (3), Marie (1), Elex (12), Lester Lavern (8), and Cornelius (3).

  • Sidney had no wife or children.

  • Katie married Johnson (we have no first name) and they produced one child: Lou Bertha (1).

  • Ginny married Rogers (we have no first name) and they produced one child: Velma.

  • Annavesta married John Sexton and they had no children (?).

  • Alice married John Allen and they produced no children (?).

  • Josephine married Thomas (we have no first name) and they produced two children: Albert, and Nettie.

  • Lucy married Will Ridgel and they produced four children: Aldonia (7), Patrick, Diatra, and Johnathan.

  • Emma had no husband or children (?).
  • Note: A number behind the above grandchild's name denotes the number of children for that person. Therefore, according to the information we have recorded, Mary & Edward Roberts have 26 grandchildren and 79 great-grandchildren.
