Would like to communicate with other descendants of Caswell Cobb ROBERTS reportedly born 30 October 1804 (year is questionable).

His first son James Lafayette ROBERTS was born 1830 and married Susan PEED 24 April 1856 in Bollinger Co., Missouri. Moved back to Warren County by 1860 census. Caswell with second wife Eustacia (Stacy) and children James L., Talitha Ann and William W. located 1850 Taney County, Missouri. What brought them to Missouri and why did they return to Warren County? Talitha married Alexander Preston CRAWFORD and William married Mary PRESNELL. William became a doctor and resided in Wisconsin. Book previously written on ROBERTS family list wrong "James" as son of Caswell. Have documentation to prove my line.

Andrew James and wife Luanna (Lorianna) Stanley we both to have come from central TN. Their birth dates are c. 1819. They married in TN arount 184l where John T. Randolph was born. From TN they moved to Illinois where Aaron H. was born in 1848. In 1849, in Decatur Iowa Mary E. was born. In 1855 Stanley was born. They moved to Wright County, Mo. where my g-grandmother Sarah Frances was born in May of 1864 about nine months prior to her father's untimely death by Confederate "bushwhackers". I am looking for evidence that they were indeed from Warren County and nformation on their next of kin "parents". As the TN counties were not established prior to the mid-1830's, I wonder if their might be church records to verify their living there. Also, I have been told that A.J. may well be part Cherokee.
