Jerusha Roberson was the daughter Of Thomas Walker Roberson, Sr and Margaret
Emerson Roberson and wife of Francis Marion Montgomery. The robersons were
of the Duffau area and many relatives still live around Hico & Stephenville.
Tom and Margaret are my wife's gggrandparents.
Lela Mae Belcher was the daughter of Thomas Washington ( Wash ) Belcher and
Amanda Ann Roberson.:Lela's grandfather was William Reed ( Buck) Roberson
who was the son of Tom & Margaret Roberson. Buck, his wife, Sarah Allard,
and several of their descendents are buried in Johnsville Cemetery.
I believe that Choctaw Bill's grandaughter, Louisa, was married to Thomas
Jonathan Belcher, father of Thomas Washington ( Wash ) Belcher .
I would love to be in contact with the lady Charles reffered to in his
message, in hopes that we can share info,,,,,Joe Lee in Evant, Texas

Subject: [ERATH] Duffau Roberson and Montgomery- Bushong connections?
Am seeking more info on Jerusha Roberson Montgomery, widow of Dr.
Montgomery - he buried in the area of Bushong Academy, roughly between
Pleasant Hill Methodist Church and Duffau- in area of old Salem or Little
Duffau school and church. and old Selden School District at one time.
His great Granddaughter wants to see her great Grandfather's Grave on
her Thanksgiving Holiday. Was this the Roberson family of Pony Creek, and
if so , how.? Seems that Dr. D.D. Tidwell of Iredell and Southwestern
Seminary and Howard Payne College has marriage connections between
Robersons and Robinsons in his book- which may fit my Great Aunt Etta
Robinson Moxley and her cousin Lela Belcher Hurley OF Johnsville. .
If any of you have a copy of Dr. Tidwell's FAMILY HISTORY OF REV.
(CHOCTAW BILL) ROBINSON and his descendants, maybe you have the key to a
mistery or two . Last copy I saw of this scholarly but thick and heavy
book was at the home of Mamie Davis , wife of Charlie Davis, between
Skipper's Gap and Johnsville over 30 years ago. She lived well past 90.
Also, if Tarleton has a copy of this book in the Brown County records.
please let me know.
