William( 1764-1832) and Sarah Clark Roby, (1764-1835) were parents of: Tabitha, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Elizabeth, Clark, Michael, and Susannah Roby. The children were born in Ohio, but I do not know where William and Sarah were born. The daughter, Susannah, b. 1805, d. 1891, married John Chambers and moved to Boone Co.,IN. If you have info about any of these Roby's, I sure would like to hear from you. They are in my direct family line.

William Roby is a son of Pryor Smallwood Robey and was born in Charles Co., MD. His wife Sarah, is a daughter of Abraham Clark and Sarah Badgley. They had 8 children as you have listed. I can trace his ancestry back to a John Roby born in 1455 in England.
If I had an E Mail address or mailing address for you I could send you a lot more on this ancestry.
