The Roberts family chronicle begins in Panola Co., MS, where four brothers — William, Samuel, John, and Daniel M. Roberts — first appeared in the mid-1830s.  Their parents have not yet been identified, but they almost certainly were early settlers of Tennessee.  The evidence suggests that they may have been related to the Roberts–Anderson clans of Sullivan and Franklin counties, TN.
Children:
