It has a great deal in it about the people you are researching. My husband is related to these people, so someone recommended I get a copy. I bought my copy from Dr. Robert E. H. Peeples, 8 Moon Shell Road, Hilton Head Island, SC 29928. It has an enormous amount of information in it on all of the families that are connected to the Roberts and Dixon lines. Or maybe you could find it in a library. Good luck. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Hi Joanne, When I first looked at the info you sent from the book, I started to say, "No, this is wrong!" But then I remembered there were two Elizabeth Dixon's and both of them married a John Roberts. I do believe that both Elizabeths were from the same family. Now let me see if I can explain the difference here. The line in the book that you sent the excerpt about are the descendants of Pierre Robert Jr (5/8/1675-1731) and Judith Burdeaux Videau (1680-aft. 1731). Their son Jacques Robert 91711-1774) & Sarah Jaudou (1719-1779), Their son John Patriot Robert (1742-1826) & Elizabeth Dixon (1750 -1820). My line is from Jean (John) Roberts, b.(1687-1760) (brother of Pierre Jr.) & Elizabeth Dixon (bef 1691 - 1760). their son Dr. John R. Roberts (1708-1791) & (wife unknown). Their son Lewis Roberts (1750-1823) and Mary (???). Their son John R. "Buttermilk Jack" Roberts (1778-1854 & Phoebe Weeks O'Steen. Pierre Jr. and Jean (John) were the son's of the Rev. Pierre Robert (1656-1715) & Jeanne Braye (1660-1717). Rev Pierre founded the French Huguenot Church at French Santee, Jamestown Parish, SC in 1796. Other siblings were Elias (1679), and Jeanne (1681) ~~~~~~~~~the following is for Melba. Maybe this is your James, and maybe not Jean (John) Roberts & Elizabeth DIXON (information above) their son: Abraham Isaac Roberts, b. 1721 French Santee, SC, d. abt 1757 Georgetown dist. SC. married (1740) Elizabeth SHEPARD, d. 1785 Georgetown dist. SC their son: John Abraham Roberts, b. 1741 SC d. 1786 CS married (1765) Mary LAMBRIGHT. their son: James Roberts, b. 1774, d. 1807 married 1st. Hannah WEST child; Mary Eliza Roberts married 2nd. Elizabeth GREEN HOWE married 3rd. ??? WALKER child; Esther Susan Roberts.
