He was born in Cazenovia and was the son of Eliakim Roberts, a druggist and dry goods merchant of that place. Anne Boleyn Roberts, the mother of Morgan was the first white woman among the settlers at Cazenovia. Morgan Roberts came to Fulton about 1832, being then twenty-one years old and became associated in the mercantile business with the late Ahmon Tucker and afterward with Churchill Tucker. A son and daughter were born to them, Morgan and Anna E, both deceased. Mr. Roberts was at one time sheriff.
