John was born 31 October 1826 in Wales to Robert and Sarah (Williams) Roberts. By the middle of the 19th Century John immigrated to the United States and settled in a Welsh speaking community named Blaen Dyffryn in LaCrosse County, Wisconsin (now Monroe County).[1] There he married Sarah Williams. Their family, all born at Blaen Dyffryn included:

  • Robert R. Roberts b. 10 June 1856 d. 10 April 1914
  • Eleanor (Nell) Roberts b. 10 February 1858 d. 17 October 1939
  • Stephen J. Roberts b. 15 March 1860 d. 31 December 1934
  • Sarah Roberts b. 10 July 1862 d. 17 October 1937
  • William Roberts b. 10 September 1864 d. November 1918
  • Margaret (Maggie) Roberts b. 21 March 1867 d. 3 June 1946
  • Ann Roberts b. 11 February 1869 d. 21 December 1949
  • John H. Roberts b. 7 April 1871 d. 9 January 1856
  • Leona Keeler (adopted)
  • Blanche Keeler (adopted)

He died 14 April, 1873. [1] The genealogy done by Virginia Drew places his death in Blaen Dyffryn. He is shown living in Monroe County with his family in the 1860 and 1870 Censuses. [2] [3] Both Censuses identify John Roberts as Welsh. His father Robert is shown living in his household at the 1870 Census and was clearly part of a family migration.

John is buried in Sparta, Wisconsin. [4]
