About William R. Roberts, Sr.
William Roberts and his sons refused to fight in the Revolution on either side. They were ostracized in the community and a local constable threatened them with confiscation of their property.
William Roberts and his wife Elinor Mahan were reportedly first cousins. They were married in 1735 at St Paul's Parish Church in Maryland. About the time Elinor died in 1770 in Rowan NC, it was reported to her former parish that she was her husband's first cousin. She was charged with fornication [incest] and expelled from the rolls of the St Paul's Parish Church (MD).
