My great grandfather's name was Lee Henry Roberts, b. 14 May 1881 in Franklin, Pennsylvania (though which Franklin, Pennsylvania, I am not sure). Other than these statements in his death certificate and a the 1920 census, I cannot find actual record of him in Pennsylvania.
Does anyone have suggestions for which records to check? His birth year complicates things, as he would have just missed the 1880 Census, and would have been 19 at the 1900 Census and possibly out of the house.
I know from Lee's death certificate that his parents' names were "Chas. Roberts," born in Pennsylvania, and a "Miss Mary Malone," born in Tennessee. I suspect he had siblings, but I do not know for sure.
I have not found any record (other than the statements from later records), of his existence before 1918.
