    Notes 
    • Name:
      George Washington Roberts -> Murray County Heritage
      George Washington Roberts -> The Heritage of Bradley County

      Connection to parents:
      He is named as a child of Monteville Roberts and Mariah Langston in Murray County Heritage.
      He is named as a child of Monteville Roberts and Jane Jones in The Heritage of Bradley County. [This is more likely, given that Monteville and Mariah married in 1852, and George was born in 1851, if Jane Jones, in fact, existed. I've never come across her name in original documents.]

      Note: Both books say that he never married.
