Robert Word Roebuck & Martha Johanna Barber
Home ] Up ]

 

ROBERT WORD ROEBUCK was the only child of Willis Roebuck and Elizabeth Lemon. His mother died either at his birth or within the first year of his life in DeKalb Co., Georgia. He was still residing there in 1845 when his father petitioned the will of his Grandfather Robert Lemon. A copy of the petition follows this history. Perhaps there was a disagreement between Willis and ROBERT, because they went their separate ways. There was no indication their paths crossed again.

ROBERT WORD ROEBUCK married MARTHA JOANNAH BARBOUR October 2, 1853, in Rome, Floyd Co., Georgia. They were residing in Calhoun, Gordon Co., Georgia on the 1860 Census.

ROBERT was in the Hardware and Tinsmithing business with his son-in-law Patrick Henry Conaway in Rome, Georgia. Their place of business was between two rivers. Patrick Conaway's son, Herbert Conaway, told that containers of red paint used for painting barns were spilled over the contents of the hardware store during one flood. A couple of floods virtually ruined their business. Since the merchandise was destroyed, they decided to give up the business. They left with thousands of dollars owed to them and moved to Grayson County, Texas, probably about 1891. Herbert Conaway said they came on a train from Rome to Chattanooga to Grayson County--he was still nursing a bottle at the time. His brother James Monroe Conaway told how they loaded everything--even the stove--on covered wagons to bring down to Texas. They first stopped at Whiteright, Texas. ROBERT WORD ROEBUCK later moved to Tyler, Smith Co., Texas, and opened a tinsmithing shop. His son-in-law Patrick Henry Conaway took up farming. ROBERT lived in Tyler until his death in 1913.

A story is told through the family that JOANNAH was to marry a wealthy man, but ran off on her wedding night to marry ROBERT. Her father made her sister marry the man. Her father never approved of ROBERT and disinherited them.

----------

R. W. ROEBUCK'S masonic records show that he was in Calhoun in 1856. It's not clear when either the Roebucks or Conaways moved from Calhoun to Rome. Probably both families lived there by the time of the marriage (1876) of Mattie E. Roebuck & Pat Conaway.

His wife was MARGARET JOANNA BARBOUR whom he married about 1853. She was born in Georgia, August 19, 1836, and she died at Tyler, February 9, 1899.

In 1860, ROBERT was living in Calhoun, Gordon County, Georgia. He was a shirt and tie manufacturer. Subsequently, he moved his family to Floyd County, Georgia. They lived in South Rome. Here, he was a Trustee of the Second Methodist Church and a member of the Masonic Lodge.

As R. W. ROEBUCK, he enlisted March 4, 1862 in the 82nd Regiment, Georgia Militia. A letter written from Calhoun, December 3, 1863, by him asked for an extension of his furlough as he was still unwell.

About 1895, Mr. and Mrs. ROEBUCK moved to Texas to join children who had gone there. They had:

The petition of ROBERT ROBUCK, an Infant, under the age of twenty one year, who sues by his next friend, Willis Robuck, both of said county respectfully showeth that on or about the twenty first day of December in the year eighteen hundred and forty three, Robert Lemon late of said county departed this life and that the said Robert Lemon at the time of his death was possessed of a considerable estate both real and personal and that your petitioner is the son and only child of Elizabeth Robuck, formerly Elizabeth Lemon, daughter of the said Robert Lemon, and as such is entitled to one equal distributive share of the estate of the said Robert Lemon with his other children & distributive provided the said Robert died intestate and your petitioner further showeth that James Lemon of the County of Cobb in said State, a son of the said Robert Lemon did at the January term in the year 1844 of the Court of Ordinary in the County of DeKalb, produce before said court, a certain instrument in writing, purporting to be the last will and testament of the said Robert Lemon, of which the said James Lemon was appointed executor, and then and there caused the same to be proven in common form which was afterwards to wit on the fifth day of March in the year last aforesaid admitted to record. And your petitioner in fact saith that the said instrument in writing is not the last will and testament of the said Robert Lemon deceased & ought to be set aside and declared null and void for the following reasons "1st because at the time of the execution of said instrument, the said Robert Lemon was of unsound mind and incapable of making a will, 2nd Because the said Robert Lemon never did sign, seal, publish & declare the said instrument as his last will and testament, 3rd Because at the time of signing said instrument the said Robert Lemon was wholly ignorant of its contents, the same never having been read to him or in his presence, 4th Because the said Robert Lemon was induced to sign said instrument by the fraudulent representations of James Lemon as to its contents, 5th Because said Instrument was procured by undue influence exercised by James Lemon, who was thereby constituted one of the principal legatees, wherefore your petitioner prays this honorable court to grant him an order, calling upon the said James Lemon to be and appear before said court, on the first Monday in March, next, to prove said will in solemn form and show cause if any he can, why said will should not be annulled set aside and declared void & your petitioner will pray do.
