Tom,
Thanks for the quick reply. I don't have a date of birth or location on my John Pettus Roberts. His father, Edwin Cone Roberts was born on 10 Jun 1854 supposedly in Memphis, TN and died 9 Feb 1935 also in Memphis. He was married to Lula Belle Pettus, born 9 Jun 1861 and died 14 Apr 1898. The only thing I have on her is her parents names were William Pettus and Amanda Adams, married in 1850 in McNairy County, TN. He remarried Lula V. Peters in 1899 and they're both buried in Hardeman Co, TN. He was supposed to be a medical doctor in Memphis. I think I saw something that said Lula B. (Pettus) was born in either Arkansas or Missouri. John P. Roberts was married to Prudia Brassfield. She later remarried a much older man, only known as Grandpa Gregory. My grandmother was Lottie Lucille Roberts b: 21 May 1914 in Monroe Co, MS, who married Robert A. Goddard in Smithville, MS. She had two sisters, Lillian Roberts Burrows and Johnny Sue Roberts Sullivan. John P. died during the 1917/18 Flu Epidemic in Mississippi. I know that my Goddard's started out in SC and went through AL via Tuskelosa, AL via an 1833 land grant to my GGGrandfather (Sampson Butler Gothard) for Creek Indian War service. Most of our folks are out of Itawamba Co and are of the Brassfields, Bourlands, Goddards, Roberts and Pettus's. I hope I haven't rambled too much and this makes some sense! Thanks again,
Ed
