Note:

   War of 1812 Service:
   Abraham Roberts was drafted at Washington, Adams County, MS . He served in Capt. Rappalgee's Company from 15 Dec 1813 t o 1 March 1814, at which time he was discharged due to a disability from a rupture or a hernia. According to an affidavit filed by John Wactor on 26 March 1877 who also serve d in the same company, the company was formed in Washington , Ms, and remained in camp in Washington for about 3 months before Capt. Rappalgee joined the company at which time they were marched to Pierce's Station in the State of Alabama where the company was fully organized. John Wactor stated that he was well acquainted with Abraham Roberts during this period of time. Wife, Sarah Taylor Roberts drew a Pension, # WE 26845 on Claim Number 12012, dated 22 Apr 1879 . Pension was actually applied for on 31 August 1876, but Sarah Taylor encountered much difficulty in proving her eligibility, with the most surprising element being the necessity of proving she was actually married to Abraham Roberts. Eventually, she was required to get affidavits from individuals who swore that they had known her to be the wife of Abraham Roberts
