  • Note:
    "John Roberts was a miller. He probably resided in the Great Valley,
    Chester County, PA, and also in Merion, Montgomery County, PA. He lost
    his life by reason of his adherence to the British cause during the
    Revolutionary War. He was taken prisoner whilst the British army occupied
    Philadelphia, 1777-78, and charged with acts inimical to the American
    cause, in which times of heated passions the calm and wise judgement was
    lost sight of in the struggle for success. Great efforts were made to
    save his life by his neighbors and friends, near and far, all petitioning
    in his behalf as a good citizen and conscientious man, but mistaken in his
    course. But it all did not avail and he suffered the extreme penalty of
    martial law."
