Sidney Reice Roberts

Born in NC and descendant of Pierre Robert, Huguenot minister.  Served in Tennessee militia with father, Littleberry, in the Cherokee Removal of 1820-30s.  Relocated to Missouri and opened goods store with J.N.B. Dodson on Osage River.  Roberts and Dodson were responsible for relocating the county seat to (Old) Linn Creek, MO, a more suitable and profitable location on the Osage in the 1840s.  Roberts and Dodson donated the land for the new courthouse and jail.  Dodson was appointed county clerk, while Roberts supervised the construction of the new jail.  Roberts served as a member of the MO House of Representatives and was later appointed by Gov. Price as Lt. Col of Commissary 5th Div. under Mosby Parsons (Cole County Division).  He served in Battles of Wilson's Creek, Carthage, and Pea Ridge before falling ill in Pine Bluff, Arkansas and passing in August 1862.
