Descendants of Joseph Roberts
Roberts' Reunion


Joseph Roberts, born December 6, 1797, in North Carolina, later moved to middle Tennessee and had 6 sons and 4 daughters.  Today, there are over 3000 documented descendants of Joseph Roberts.  Each year the Roberts Family holds a reunion to celebrate our common heritage and to fellowship with family members of all ages from all parts of the country.

This reunion was brought about by the efforts of Howard Roberts, Velma (Roberts) Phillips, Carlos Herren, and others to enable the extended family to get together, renew old acquaintances, and learn about each other.  It was also brought about by the desire and need to reclaim and/or maintain multiple cemeteries where our fore fathers were buried.  Markers and headstones were needed for some of the graves.  It was the desire of Clavis Roberts to mark all the graves that had no headstones while there were people still alive who had the information needed to do so.  Along with his son, Tommy, many a day, weekend, vacation, and other available times were dedicated to this end.  Today, through the efforts and contributions of Joseph Roberts' descendants, many of the unmarked graves now have headstones, some cemeteries have been cleaned, others have been fenced, roads have been improved, and tours of the cemeteries are available during the reunions.

At the reunions we have dinners with food provided by some of the greatest cooks around, all on a volunteer basis.  It is a covered dish or pot luck dinner (that's the noon meal).  It is a great time to catch up with old friends, families, and acquaintances.

In 2000, a book chronicling the Descendants of Joseph Roberts was made available by Tommy Roberts.  Thanks to his and all the contributors' efforts, literally covering many years, this record and genealogy of the Joseph Roberts family was made possible.

Come out and help us make the next Descendants of Joseph Roberts Reunion the best reunion yet.  View the Reunion Agenda for the date, location, and agenda for the upcoming reunion.
