1808 removed to Mississippi Arrived in MS from SC in 1808/9; appear on the 1820 franklin County Census. Abraham is reported to be buried 2 miles northwest of Wilson's Ferry on the Homochitto River in Franklin County.

Abraham served in the Cherokee War under Col. George Gabriel Powell. He

also served in the Revolutionary War in the militia under Gen. Francis Marion and

others. He served in the War of 1812 as a Captain, 7th Regiment, Perkins

Battalion of Mississippi Militia. Abraham moved with his wife Desire to

Mississippi in 1808 having a Georgia passport to cross the Creek Nation

dated Friday, 4, Nov. 1808.

During the American Revolution, Abraham Roberts II, served for 84 days under General Francis Marion's Brigade. For this service he was authorized payment of five pounds, twelve shillings sterling on August 3, 1784. On June 23, 1785, he was paid thirty pounds, thirteen shillings, and eight pence farthing sterling for militia duty and for making 18 swords. Abraham subsequently wrote on the back of Indent #243, "I assign over all my rights and title to the within indent, both principal and interest to John Brown, having received full satisfaction for the same, as witness my hand this 23 day of July 1785." Signed: Abraham Roberts. On January 26, 1786, Abraham Roberts was paid "one shilling and six pence for one year's interest on the sum of one pound, one shilling and nine pence sterling for the care of a Negroe' man named Hesick, belonging to Charles Fledger." The certificate authorized further payment on January 26, 1788, the principal sum of one pound, one shilling, three pence upon demand by Abraham Roberts or his executors. A note attached to Indent #946-Y reads: "Sir, please deliver to John McKee all of the indents that should be due me by the public, as I have received full payment for the same,... and you will oblige, your obedt servt." Signed: Abraham Roberts.

After the Revolution, Abraham II, obtained 99 acres through a land plat issued on March 7, 1785, in the District of Georgetown. This land was on the northeast side of the Pee Dee River of South Carolina, located close to the Bostick Landing near the town of Gresham. Landowners adjacent to this plat were Ebenezer Dunnom and William Davis. Abraham Roberts II lived in the area for a number of years as he and his family are on both the 1790 and the 1800 census reports. On July 13, 1807, Abraham applied for and was approved to claim 320 acres of public land on Beaver Creek in Amite County of what was then the Mississippi Territory. He must have made at least one trip to the Mississippi Territory to apply for and claim his land, but then probably returned to South Carolina to get his family as they apparently did not move from South Carolina to the Mississippi Territory until 1808. He was granted a passport by the Governor of Georgia on Friday, November 4, 1808, and authorized to travel with his family through the Creek Nation for the purposes of settling in the Mississippi Territory. Attesting to his good character was Richard Jowell.
