    After the migration from Kentucky we find George Roberson Jr. and his wife Francis residing in the English area where they raise six girls and a boy starting with Mary in 1813 and ending with their youngest Sarah born 1833. The 2nd daughter Eleanor known as Nelly at 17 falls in love with her cousin Daniel Roberson Jr., marry in 1833 and have three sons. Daniel is the 7th child of Daniel Roberson and Ester Ada Yates.

    Their daughter Elizabeth will have her first son out of wedlock; his name is Origin Roberson. Origin will serve in the 1st Indiana Calvary and survive the war. Their only son, William Greenberry Roberson must have had remarkable leadership qualities as he is appointed the 1st Sergeant of Company K, 38th Indiana Volunteers Infantry. Their daughter Lavina will marry John Wesley and she is the mother of Mahala and Benjamin May described above.

    Their daughter Francis will marry John M.B. Scott who serves in the 81st Indiana with John Winfield Yates and Ben May and survives the war. And their youngest daughter Sarah born in 1833 will marry Silas S. Breeden. Silas's brother Francis has already married Mary Ann Yates, a daughter of Tolbert Thompson Yates and Jane McCraney. There must be a very close relationship between the Yates, Roberson and Breeden family at this point as the 1860 census indicates that Ester Ada Yates Roberson, widow of Daniel Roberson Sr. and sister to Robert Yates appears to be living with James Breeden and his wife Sally.

    The first of our two subject warriors to die is Silas S. Breeden. We do not know the exact details of his day to day service but we know he served with the familiar Company K, 38th Indiana Volunteers Infantry. We have recently been able to identify that while serving with the 38th he died on August 25, 1863 in Decherd, TN and buried at Stones River National Cemetery about 25 miles east of Nashville. The Civil War dominated life in Decherd during the war years. No major battles were fought in the area, but several skirmishes were fought over control of the railroad and Elk River. In 1863 Federals under Colonel John T. Wilder drove a Confederate force from Decherd and destroyed about 300 yards of the railroad between Decherd and Cowan. From pension records we know that Sarah began a widow's pension starting October 28 1863 through March 1878. This may be the date of her death but this is unknown.

    By 1865, Samuel C. Roberson, the eldest of the three sons of Nelly and Daniel Roberson turned 19 years of age. Either through a volunteer decision or as a result of conscription Samuel entered service with Company D, 144th Indiana Volunteer Infantry at age 19. He mustered in February 9, 1865 in Jeffersonville, IN.; he was described as blue eyes, light hair, 5'8" tall of fair complexion. By March 8, 1865 he was already home where he presumably died of disease. He is buried at Hamilton-Roberson Cemetery. Daniel Roberson's pain will be extended further as his wife Nelly dies about a year later and is also buried at Hamilton-Roberson Cemetery.

    Silas married Sarah Roberson on 20 Feb 1861 in Crawford, Indiana. Sarah (daughter of George Roberson, Jr. and Frances Westfall) was born about 1833 in Crawford, Indiana; died on 22 Mar 1878. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
