    re you sure about the death date of Marie Fadoshia Roberts (McBrayer)? She was the sister of my grandfather Sam Milton Roberts. If we are talking about the same person I knew her in my lifetime. I have a picture of her. I have pictures of my grandparents, Sam Roberts and Allie Butler. Thanks Ed Roberts

      Hi Ed, that was supposed to say that she was born in 1876 (I’ve corrected it). She actually died in 1958. Thanks for the heads up! I would love to have pictures, if you are willing to share.
