    Excellent thread, as usual. I have to do some research on Jacksonville, FL. Seems like my relatives from Georgia and the Carolinas and even parts of Northern Fl. flocked there in the early 1900s.

    better than just preserving these towns we should be taking the same ideals of our ancestors and building up our own towns and cities.

    History


    Roberts Settlement Hamilton County, Indiana

    Each year on Fourth of July weekend, members of the Roberts Settlement gather to celebrate their family reunion. Descendants of settlement founder Elijah Roberts (1795-1848) gathered at Roberts Chapel Church located in northern Hamilton County, which was established in 1837. More than 150 members of the Roberts Settlement family attended this year's 93rd homecoming, some traveling from Iowa, Ohio and Michigan to enjoy the fellowship of their relatives. Paula Gilliam is the current president of the Roberts Settlement Family Group.
