Benjamin Franklin Roberts is a Notable and has a really interesting Article by the NEHS see Benjamin Roberts Fights To Integrate Massachusetts Schools—and Wins in 1855

We need help connecting him to the wikitree family 

See also his uncle and mother’s brother a notable as well Hosea Easton (1798 - 1837)

See also his father and notable Robert Roberts (1780 - 1860)

I personally think this entire family is absolutely amazing and fascinating !

Thank you
