The next family now to be noticed is the Roberts family. The first of them known to the writer
was Redden Roberts and Norton Roberts. They settled on Buck Swamp near Buck Swamp Bridge. I do not
know who the wife of either was, but both married and raised families. Redden Roberts had sons,
William D., James, Rowland and Giles.
Norton Roberts resided on the first settled place south of Buck Swamp Bridge; don't know who he
married -think, however, his wife was a Miss Johnson; he, with all his family, except his oldest
son, Colonel John M. Roberts, went to Louisiana a way back, perhaps in the forties, and it is said,
don't know how much truth, that one of his sons became Governor of Louisiana.
