I'm looking for information about Edward D. Roberts' family.
Edward was b. abt1829 in MA & m. Jane Adams b. abt1834 MA, dau. of Thomas &
Celestia (Pratt) Adams.
I know Edward & Jane had at least 3 children, Charles E. b. abt 1852 VT, Thomas A. b.
abt 1857 IA & Judson b. abt. 1871.
I see the family in 1870 & 80 in Troy, Iowa Co., IA.
Jane's mother, Celestia was also living with them in IA.
After 1880 I can't find find them.
I don't know if they left IA or died & are buried near Troy, IA. Or perhaps after
her mother died they moved away.
If any of them are buried in IA then Jane's mother who was my greatgrandmother's
aunt must also be buried there.
I found a couple of census records for possibly 2 of their sons but have not been able to
verify that Charles E. m. someone named Sarah b. abt. 1854 in Indiana or that Thomas A. m.
someone named Melvina b. abt 1858 in IA.
Are there any online cemetery records I could check for Iowa Co., IA or maybe online
obits/death records for the same?
Thank you, Priscilla
