    3. Correction, he bought the land in 1736 not 1836. That is what happens when you cut and paste and don't carefully proofread what you have done : - ) Hugh By the way, There are many John Roberts in SC during this period. Some experts feel that the John Roberts who moved to Colleton County is the son of Jean (John) Robert and not Jean Robert. Therefore, Abraham and this John Roberts would be first cousins rather than father and son.

He bought land in 1836 from Colonel Lawrence Sanders in St. Bartholomew's Parish, Colleton County. South Carolina. Signed his name, Abraham Robert. It is possible that Elizabeth was a Sanders as land transactions during his period often involved members of the same family. Abraham also was a witness to the conveyance of land between the brothers, Lawrence and William Sanders. He was in St. Bartholomew’s Parish fifteen years before his father, John/Jean Roberts moved to St. Bartholomew's Parish in 1850 when John purchased the 500 acre John Kennaway parcel on January 30, 1750. This would be very close to the date of Abraham's death. He probably married Elizabeth in the late 1730s or early 1740s as their son, John, was born February 2, 1742.
