A hundred years ago, my Roberts relatives were in Murray County, Georgia. This photo is of the 1909 Roberts family reunion; if you can identify anyone in the photo, please leave a comment.
Nancy Alice (Roberts) Hemphill, my great-grandmother, was likely in the Ball Ground area, where she was on the 1910 census. At that time, she was enumerated with my great-grandfather, J. A. Hemphill, and their children: Blanche, Edna, Jim, Martin, and Walt.
Alice’s younger brother, Elijah Monteville Roberts, was also likely in the Bull Pen area. In 1910, he was enumerated there, along with his wife Ella (Adair) and their children: Lillian, Herschel, Eva, and Dimple. Martin’s mother, Mariah (Langston), my 3x great-grandmother was also enumerated in Elijah’s household, but she moved around (she was actually enumerated a second time on the 1910 census, in another grandson’s household), so she may not have been living with Elijah in 1909 .
