Surnames: Roberts
Hello Nate,

I just accidentally happened upon this while doing another search, but I am married to Tommy Roberts. He is the oldest son of Billy E. Roberts and Paula J. McWhorter. Billy and his brother and sister are all still living. I have met a couple of the brother's and sister's from Jack Roberts' later marriage, but don't know them too well. The one I guess I know most would be Pearson Roberts. My husband graduated with his daughter Waverly Roberts, who's surname is now Smith. I do know that several are still in the Cleveland, Texas area. Hope this helps some.

Karla Roberts

Is this the Manuel C. Roberts who was also married to Opal Eudora Ward and Alice Mae McCain?

If so ... he was the son of Tod Lawrence Roberts (1891-1916) and Nannie Thompson.

Tod was the son of Benjamin Franklin Roberts (1845-1896) and Catherine Lucas (1853-1896) and was an uncle to Jackson Frank Roberts whose line I am researching.

Hope this helps,

MANUEL CLESTER ROBERTS, born May 23 1913 San Jacinto co TX, died Jan 16 1999 Harris co TX.

first wife : Jean B. "Jennie" Samento, born Nov 4 1918 Pueblo CO, believe she may still be living. Manuel and Jean had two children (Manuel Jr, born Sep 24 1934 Libery co TX and Loretta Mae, born Sep 06 1935 Montgomery co TX.

Manuel and Jean were divorced about 1939. Jean kept the children and remarried Frank Woodrow Cates in Little Rock, AR on May 31 1942. Frank Cates adopted the two Roberts children. Manuel Jr's name was changed to Charles Ray Cates, he died Sep 03 1995 near Belton MO. Loretta kept her full name, just changed the surname. She married a Hanks that I have not been able to identify.

second wife was Opal Eudora Ward and she married Manuel in Cleveland in 1939. They had two children ... Manuel Lewis and Nancy Pearl Roberts. Nancy married Walter Carlton Pennington Jr and they lived in Cleveland for quite some time but I believe they now live near Bryan or College Station in Brazos co TX. Manuel Lewis Roberts was born Apr 30 1940 in Cleveland/Liberty co TX and he died Jul 09 1951 in Seabrook/Harris co TX. Cause of death was accidental drowning. He is buried at the White Oak Cemetery in Porter/Montgomery co TX. Opal and Manuel were divorced about 1948 and then she married Leon Wilson Hunt in Harris county on Jan 30 1952. They were divorced (or he died) before Jul 02 1965. It was on that date that a license to marry was issued in Harris county for Wayne Odom and Mrs. Opal Eudora Roberts. This license was never returned so the marriage did not occur. Opal is still living in Cleveland, TX and carrying the Roberts surname ... 86 years old.

Lastly, Manuel Clester Roberts and Alice Mae McCain were married in Harris county TX Mar 16 1949.

Hope this helps,
