Birth*4 Jan 1795 Weldon, Halifax Co., North Carolina2,3,1 
Marriage* Principal=Kesiah Corbin 
Residence1830 Rush Co., Indiana; Household includes 8 free colored individuals (3 males and 5 females).

1 male is age 24-35, and 2 are under 10. 1 femaile is 24-35, 3 are under 10, and 1 is 10-23.

Anthony Robers and James Roberts (likely his brothers) live nearby.4 
Residence*1840 Jackson, Hamilton Co., Indiana; Household of 11 Free Colored Persons (7 males and 4 females). The males are 4 under 10, 2 between 10 and 23, and 1 between 36 and 54. The females are 1 under 10, 2 between 10 and 23, and 1 between 36 and 54.

2 of the household are employed in agriculture.

The neighbors (all around) are recorded as being white, so the free-colored family of Elijah (and Keziah) Roberts is a stand-out in the neighborhood. In the Jackson Township community as a whole, the only other colored families (free or otherwise) are Elijah's relatives, Hansel Roberts (his 1st cousin), Wade Roberts (his son-in-law), an apparently unrelated female member of the David M. Anthony family, and the family of Micajah Waldronon.5
