Roberts family help needed

Posted: 4 Sep 2011 11:42AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Brashears Beshears Brashers Roberts Garren
I need help locating the parents of Ann/Anna Roberts (possibly Ann/Anna Pearson Roberts) b. in 1852 in Georgia wife of Samuel Garren (they married in 1872).

Her children say her parents were Robert Henry Roberts and Elizabeth E. Brashers. Her children also stated Robert Henry Roberts father was John Roberts and mother ? Carter. With John Roberts father being ? Nelson.
Her children also stated Elizabeth E. Brashers mothers name was Annus Nelson
Jill's note: I think the Nelson surname is confused as to which line.

Could this be them and Brashers be Mashers?--
