As the years went on the grandchildren and great grandchildren of General Roberson sought work outside of the family farm. Several of them served during World War I and II. Many stayed in Durham and Chapel Hill, but the land he acquired was eventually sold for development.
Are you a descendant of the Roberson family? We’d love to hear from you!
