Anyone know this line of Roberts? ...


The below info was taken from a old Roberts bible that was found recently at friends brother's house .... have not gotten into researching them yet The bible writting is in Old English

The origonal Roberts who was Jacob Roberts m Hannah Heritage and they emigrated to the US from Wales in 1700 their children were

Joseph Jacob Daniel Ephriam Manassah Ruth Keziah Mary Elizabeth and Hannah... not sure where they were born.

Thats all I know about Jacob and Hannah Roberts at this time

This early family might have been Welsh Quaker but only guessing this.

There were other Roberts names in the old bible that the family has but no idea where they fit in

Joseph Roberts br Jan 1769 d 28 Nov 1860 m Mary Hadress 13 April 1834 where?

Joseph Roberts b 2 Aug 1738 Philly Pa d 1821 Philly Pa married Lititia Jones in 1764 Glouchester NY
Letitia br 26 March 1747 d 1821
Thats all info on them
