The Roberts~One of My Large Families

     Having a Large Family, the theme of Week 37 of 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks  2015 Edition by Amy Johnson Crow, is something found on both sides of my family tree.
  My maternal Great Great Grandparents, George Philip Roberts (1856-1930) and Hattie Brazell Roberts (1870-1927)  were married about 1854 most likely in Richland County, South Carolina.

George and Hattie lived on land, now part of Fort Jackson in Columbia, Richland, South Carolina. It was on this property of over 100 acres they farmed and raised their 9 children. Later in life they lived in the Olympia area of Richland County and several family members worked in the Pacific Mill.

Many of the descendants of George and Hattie married and raised large families themselves. They were active in their communities in Richland County and other surrounding areas where their legacy is still felt today.
