     For many years the father of Mr. Roberts carried on farming and stock raising here and was one of the solid and reliable men of this section, and in business affairs as well as in social and family life was held in high esteem. His death occurred September 22, 1911, and his burial was in the Port Jefferson cemetery. In politics he was a republican and in religious faith he was a Methodist.   In early manhood he married Florence Hartman, who survives, and they had the following children: Emma, Marion, Cora, Blaine, Oliver, Minnie, Lettie and Lela. Cora is the wife of Lloyd Case.
     Marion Roberts secured a common school education and until he was twenty-three years old continued to assist his father on the home farm. He then started out independently and for the next six years worked by the month for farmers in Shelby county and then returned to the home farm of which he has had charge since his father's death. A general farming line is carried on and stock for home use is raised, all the different industries being well looked after. Mr. Roberts is identified with the Masonic fraternity at Port Jefferson and with his mother attends the Methodist Episcopal church there.  He was reared to believe in and support the republican party.
