    • 11/12/2009 Howdy Bert! I have been pulling my hair out; too many bodies, too many headstone, wrong names, conflicting sources, one civil war, one college and two cemeteries. Heck, none of them match!

      After I wrote my story about these 3 Roberson's buried at Grant Roberson in Grantsburg I found two graves and headstones for them at Shiloh National Cemetery. Doris Leistner has a Roberson with a different middle named listed in her book and now I have this written source from you about the college which suggests a different kind of death circumstance. Some puzzles will never be solved I guess. Thanks for sending this information and I hope you are having a good day. Ron
