It would appear that the Morton H Roberts who married Emma E Ray died in Texas in 1945

If you are looking for the Morton Roberts family who died in 1981 do you have his wife's name. and his 7 childrens names. how did you work back to him ??? Could this be him ??

Your information appears the same as what I have, except that Morton Henry Roberts, born 1873 did indeed died in 1981 in New York.

There was a Morton Roberts born 24 Apr 1873 who died in Flushing, Queens, New York in May 1981. Not sure his middle name was Henry.

Is it a coincident that that both married a Emma E Ray. one Morton who died in 1945 and the other in 1981. What was the parents names for the one who died in 1981. 1945 Morton's parents were W E Roberts & Mary Bettis.

by FromThePast on 2016-01-25 18:04:44

I do not have the parents names. Morton Henry Roberts 1873-1981 was married twice. First to Mary LNU born in 1875. Second to Emma Edna Ray born in 1881 in Texas. Morton's parents were both born in Tennessee. Emma's parents were born in Georgia for her father and Texas for her mother. They had seven children and adopted three Blunt children out of the five. I was originally researching my DIL family tree and we found this Morton. That was a hair raising experience that day.
Any more information of this Morton like his descendants would be great.
Thanks for your help.

Sorry I cannot hep you any more. I am based in the UK so you might have access to more records than I have. On the 1900/10 Census it as Emma's father as being born in Mississippi and 1920 in Georgia.

If you follow this link it will show the gravestone for a Morton H Roberts 1872 - 1845. Emma 1881-1972 and Joseph Ray 1898 - 1914.

I have no idea who the Morton Roberts who died in 1891 New York is. It state he was BORN: 24 Apr 1873 but not where.
