THANKS FOR THE REPLY TO MY QUERY, I'M NOT SURE IF THIS MICHAEL IS THE RIGHT ONE. ACCORDING TO FAMILY JISTORY, MICHAEL AND ELIZABETH'S CHILDREN WERE: FRED; GEORGE;ISAAC;JANIE;MARY;MARGARET;SARAH; NOT NECESS. IN THAT ORDER, I REC. A RESPONSE FROM ANOTHER PERSON WITH MICHAEL & ELIZABETH AND THEIR CHILDREN; FREDERICK;MARGARET;BESSIE;AGNES;MICHAEL., MICHAEL WAS SUPPOSIDLY FROM SCOTLAND OR WALES AND ELIZABETH WAS FROM P.E.I., ORIG. FROM IRELAND. DOES ANY ONE KNOW WHICH ONES ARE RIGHT? THANKS
The 1901 Weldford parish census lists a Jane Roberts as living as a domestic in the house of James Wiley
(my G -grandfather). James grandson (Robert Irving Wylie) also lived in the house and married a Maggie Roberts in Kent County in 1914.
I have not had any luck making a connection between Jane and Maggie but I believe there is one.
good luck, Jim Wylie
Not sure if this has anything to do with what you are looking for, but I have this family book on the Cogswells and Haldemans by Helen Trostel, and there is a small section on the Roberts Family:
John Roberts of Roxbury Mass. came, says the curch record "in 1636, brought his aged mother, wife and children; Thomas, Edward, Elizabeth, Margery, Jane, Alice, Lydia, Ruth, and Deborah. He was one of the first fruits of Wales that came to New England called to Christ by the ministry of that reverend and worth instrument Mr. Wrath." In its proper place the record has this (Jan. 7, 1645/6, old mother Roberts, a Welsh woman, died in her 103rd year of her age. She was about 90 years old when she left her native country.) He was freeman May 22, 1639, died Nov. 27, 1651. (complier's note: Jane was probably Jennett, above. These names were used interchangeably.)
Jennett Roberts married Robert Starkweather (born in Wales and died in 1674 at Ipswich, Mass). Their children include: Elizabeth, Lydia, John, and Deborah.
Hope this helps
Who was Frederick James' second wife after Gertrude Thompson? There is a descendant of this family (in his 80s) who remembers the ancestors - he lives in Targettville. If you're interested, contact me off line.
