Classification: Query
Surnames: Roberts Anderson Beecher
William Roberts (b Abt. 1617 in Ireland, d. Augg 6, 1689 in Milford Connecticut is an ancestor of the Roberts brothers (William, John, David & Henry) of the Watauga Settlements of East Tenessee (beginning there 1773), and a ancestor of Harriet Beecher Stowe, the abolitionist who wrote Uncle Tom's Cabin.

Our own family line moves from East Tennessee to south-central Kentcuky. The particular branch descends this way: 1 William (b. Abt. 1617), 2 William (b. 1663), 3 William , 4 John (d. 1774), 5 James (b. Abt. 1764), 6 Henry (b. 1807), 7 James (b. 1829) and down from there into Casey County, Kentucky. Would really like confirmation that the James Roberts of generation 5 who settled in Pulaski Counry, KY was the same as the 1774 massacre survivor from Reedy Creek, Tennessee. Also very curious about the generations previous to the earlist in this posting. Does anyone know where in Ireland William Roberts (1617-1689) came from? Any other information about people on this list is appreciated.

The descendant outline chart below was put together from many sources, including large contributions by Sandi Lawson, TissThomas (who compiled much from the McClung Collection) and Rochelle Riordan. The facts and dates are not infallable, and reliable corrections are welcomed.

Thanks for your interest,

Todd Mercer
