Hello - I have a Martin Alexander ROBERSON (a preacher and/or a
farmer) who married Martha "Mattie" Armanda SIMPSON. He was
Tennessee around 1850-60 and died a fairly young man. He was the
son of Risdon ROBERSON. Mattie was born in Sparta, Tennessee, in
1860, to Richard SIMPSON (b. VA ca 1811) and Amy Armanda
LOOPER,( b. TN 1831)
Children of Martin and Mattie were Risdon R. (Arthur?) , resided
Seattle, WA; Sophia Louisa, md. Marion VANDERPOOL; Bertha Lee, a
missionary in China, never married; Wallace Coffman; Arthur
Coleman; and Lilly May, md.Leo RATLIFF, resided, Seattle, WA.
Martin ROBERSON died in 1898.
Mattie remarried to Mr.Richard L. LAKEY, a carpenter. She
moved to Oklahoma, then Texas, for health reasons, but not
certain whether she married Mr. LAKEY before or after moving to
Texas. I am pretty certain her children were young enough that
she took most of them to Texas with her. After the death of
Richard LAKEY, Mattie moved to Seattle, Washington, to be near
her daughters and lived to be 101. She died in Washington state
Looking to connect with any of these families.
Sincerely, Blanche Spence in Montana
