Biography of Joseph E. Roberts

Joseph E. Roberts, conducting a furniture and undertaking business at Nowata, is one of the wide-awake and alert young men of the city, whose success is the result of thoroughness and enterprise. He was born October 23, 1892, about twelve miles east of the city in which he still makes his home. His father, Edward Taylor Roberts, was a native of Indiana, his birth having occurred on a farm near Lebanon in Montgomery County, his parents being James Thomas and Lydia A. (James) Roberts. His parents were Kentuckians but were married in Indiana, to which state they had removed in early life. James T. Roberts there followed farming until 1870 and also engaged to some extent in merchandising. He then removed with his family to Liberty, Kansas, where he carried on farming, stock raising, and mercantile pursuits until 1881, at which time he became a resident of the Indian Territory settling on a farm six miles south of the present site of Nowata. His remaining days were given to agricultural pursuits and he won a substantial success as the years passed by. He was a Democrat in his political views but took no active part in politics. He died in 1903. His wife passed away in 1904, at the age of sixty-seven years. Edward T. Roberts was the second in order of birth in a family of seven children...
