I know of only one child Rachel Roberts that married John Hendley. I know there must have been others. I am also interested in adding to my data set on this family.
Do you have the dates for John & Rebecca?

Hi Herman,
Thanks for your speedy response. Are you sure about there only being one child. I don't have any info on John and Rebecca except the date they were married April 29, 1872 in Irwin Co. Rebecca Mixon was the first wife of John Roberts we think....But my John Roberts for sure was married to Fereby Whitley m Dec.12, 1894. Together they had only one child (my grandmother) Rebecca Estelle Roberts b Nov. 18, 1895. My mom and 4 of her sisters all in their 70s and 80s want to know the identity of their grandfather John Roberts. We are not even sure that he was married to Rebecca Mixon. John Roberts was for a fact married to 2 women. By the first wife he had 7 children. A couple of the names that my aunts remember hearing about was Issac and Henry they can't remember any more except the only girl was named Cathlene, she died very young of the fever. John Roberts died when my grandmother was only 3 or 4 yrs. old. Her mother Fereby remarried to a W. T. Boykin, by the time my grandmother was 5. Thats why we don't know anything else. There is one more thing the funeral book of my grandmother Rebecca shows that she had a br there named John G. Roberts. So we know the names of three of them. Are you living in Irwin Co.? Thanks for any help you might be able to give. Shirley ps please respond soon we are so eager to know anything.

Hi June and thanks for the info I think you have give me something to work with. My main concern is the correct idenity of John ? Roberts. John Roberts was married to two women. The first was (we only think was Rebecca Mixon) the second we know for a fact was married to Fereby Whitley. Together they had only one child, Rebecca Estelle Roberts (Sirmans) my grandmother. Everything we come across for both wives show him as either / or John E, John G or John J. I live in Jax. Fl. and I went up to the Irwin Co court house to the probate court, but was not able to get anything because the Judge would not let me look at the records at all. Without being able to do this I can get NO REAL PROOF. Thanks again for your info though . Shirley

All of the marriage certificates are on microfilm and in the library. Thanks to the Mormons who came to Irwin Co. and spent 9 months doing this for us. The certificates themselves are also in the library. Our County Commissioners would not make shelves to put them on in the CourtHouse.
I can do 2 things for you.
1. I can look up obits in Ocilla Star since 1900-they are on microfilm also -some issues missing.
2. I can copy marriage certificates for you.
My time is limited during library hours and it may take me some time to do this.
And we are trying to improve our Probate Judge situation with the election runoff in 2 weeks. Mr. Smith doesn't even like to help folks at home.
