[George Robert's father] "Daniel J. Roberts, a well known farmer, son of George W. and Mary (Rumple) Roberts, was born in St. Charles, Morgan township, Butler county, January 2, 1856.

His paternal grandparents were John and Elizabeth (Guilder) Roberts. His father, George W. Roberts, was born in Virginia, and came to Butler county with his parents, who were also parents of the following children:

  • Adeline, who married Daniel Rumple;
  • Emma, Mrs. Wilson;
  • Margaret;
  • Mary, who became the wife of John Willett;
  • David,
  • William and
  • Edward, all deceased;
  • Daniel; and
  • George, the father of Daniel J. Roberts, the subject of this biography.

    David and Edward Roberts served throughout the Civil war, the latter losing life in battle.

    John Roberts, the grandfather, also fought in the Civil war, and was lost in action. It is thought that the brave old soldier was killed, as he was never heard from again.

    George W. Roberts, Daniel Roberts' father, married Mary Rumple, and settled in Morgan township. She was a daughter of Daniel Rumple, a pioneer merchant of Butler county, who had conducted a hardware business at Hamilton. George Roberts and his wife spent their entire lives in Morgan township. Their children were:

  • Daniel J.;
  • Albert, who lives in Richland, Mo.;
  • Orella, who became the wife of Samuel Gillespie; and
  • Edgar, deceased.

    Daniel J. Roberts attended school in Morgan township, and at Hamilton, after which he engaged in farming. In 1877 he married Addie DeArmond, daughter of Randolph and Mary (George) DeArmond. After marriage, Mr. Roberts and his wife settled in Morgan township, on the old Morehouse farm.

    Their union has been blessed with these children:

  • George,
  • James,
  • Lora,
  • Effie,
  • Phoebe,
  • Imogene and
  • Grace.

    George Roberts married Carrie Prall, who lives in Hamilton, and has two children, Eugene and Dorothy;
    James married Alta Cornett, and with their one child [in 1919], they reside with his father.
    Lora died some years ago.
    Effie became the wife of Frank Durham, and has two children, John and Margery.
    Phoebe has not married.
    Imogene was married to Clarence Connett, and their home is in Carthage. They have one child, Willard.
    Grace has not married [in 1919].

    Daniel J. Roberts' farm is one of great natural beauty, and in size totals 121 acres. Upon this farm, besides his agricultural work, he raises fine Jersey cattle, and today is the owner of seventeen head. During the war Mr. Roberts entered actively into home service in connection with all patriotic activities. In politics, he is a Democrat."
