      [James Morrison and Laura Weathers Roberson's oldest son was named Gasaway (check census records 1880 and 1900 Crawford County). When the family left Crawford County after the 1900 census Gasaway changed his name to Charles Roberson. Charles may have been his middle name, I don't know for sure but I have documentation to the fact that Charles Roberson, son of James Morrison Roberson, obtained a marriage license in Orange County, Indiana. He never again used the name Gasaway.

      All records, census and death, refer to Charles Roberson. He is buried in Orange County, Indiana at the Old Union United Methodist Church Cemetery, southwest of Orleans, Indiana, with Zetta Evalou Fisher Roberson. I thought we better get this corrected before it gets too far down the road. This is the family line that I am working on and the names of "Charles" Roberson sisters don't match the 1880 or 1900 census records nor do the birthdates.]
