98. Roberts Settlement Reunion Saturday

   Family reunions really turn on genealogists--all those memories, clippings, photos, vintage notes and diagrams! An interesting reunion will be happening this Saturday in Hamilton County, as the descendants of Elijah Roberts will gather at Roberts Chapel near Atlanta. The reunion, an annual event since 1924, will feature a Tuskegee Airman, Arthur Carter, at 2 pm.
    The Roberts Settlement was a free black community dating back to 1835, one of several such sites in Indiana. For further details about the reunion, call Milton Baltimore at (317) 259-4838.
