Now that you ask that I'm not even sure I'm asking in the correct place. I got that William was born in 1871 in York, PA from some papers my grandfather has. When I search the 1880 census for "William Roberts" with parents of Ira and Sara (names also received from my grandfathers papers. I only get one listing which lists William as the son of Ira and Sara born abt 1970 and living in Nebraska. I've not been able to wind William or Ira in the 1990 census yet.
