Much information gathered. . .

. . . We have gathered a lot of information on Martha’s ancestors. It seems many of her relatives have gathered much information. However, there is so much it will take quite a bit of time to analyze and organize it. It appears that Martha’s g-g-g-grandfather came from Germany and fought in the Revolutionary War which brought him a land-grant in Somerset County PA, where he raised a large family.  Until we can analyze it all and put it in narrative here is what we have in our genealogy program:

Working on it. . .

. . . Information for this page is now being gathered. Getting it organized to publish here is going very slow.  Until then we have the following information on Harold’s Ancestry in our genealogy program:

Mimi’s parents. . .

. . .Mimi’s father, Harold, was the first of four children born to Laurence S. Roberts and Nellie (Coup) Roberts. Harold was born May 13, 1901 in Wilkinsburg PA. He passed away March 16, 1960 in Leechburg PA, the town where Mimi was raised.

Mimi’s Mother was Martha Shunk, born in Vandergrift PA January 14, 1900. Her parents were James K. Shunk and Sarah Jane (Klingensmith) Shunk. Martha died May 5, 1977.

Harold and Martha were married in 1922.

Sisters and brother. . .

. . Mimi, born Marian Cathryn Roberts on February 23, 1937, is the youngest of Harold and Martha’s four children. Her oldest sibling was Betty (Sarah Elizabeth) born Born March 15, 1923. Her brother was Jimmy (James Harold) born July 17, 1925. Marcie (Martha Jane) was born October 14, 1926. Judging from the birth dates of her siblings you can see Mimi was truly the “baby” of the family. As you can see, Mimi’s information is slow in being developed. Just can’t plant the ‘genealogy bug’ in her.  However until she does get the ‘bug’ here is what we have in our genealogy program regarding her family:
