Researching my husband's family -
Daniel Webster Roberts was born 27 Mar 1854 in Jones Co., IA. He was married to Ida May Hinkle on 5 Mar 1881 in Indianapolis, Marion, IN. He died 8 Apr 1910 in Tulsa, OK. His birth date has also been found as 27 Mar 1856 (on his death certificate).
I believe that his parents were the H. W. Roberts (the "W" probably stood for William) and Lydia J. Van Valkenburg who were married in Jones Co., IA on 7 May 1854. I have found them listed on some of the IA state censuses during the 1850s. I believe that H.W. was listed as a school teacher.
In the 1880 Census, they are found in Edinburg, Johnson Co., IN. H.W. & Lydia also had other children listed at that time: Wilbern, Selby T., Charles E., and Grace.
Daniel was listed as 26 years old (supporting the 1854 birth date). If that birth date is correct, however, he would have been born before H.W. and Lydia were married.
I am wondering if Daniel was borne to a wife who died at childbirth and then H.W. married Lydia.
Would appreciate any info concerning the Roberts and Van Valkenburgs.
