His paternal grandparents were John and Elizabeth (Guilder) Roberts. His father, George W. Roberts, was born in Virginia, and came to Butler county with his parents, who were also parents of the following children:
David and Edward Roberts served throughout the Civil war, the latter losing life in battle.
John Roberts, the grandfather, also fought in the Civil war, and was lost in action. It is thought that the brave old soldier was killed, as he was never heard from again.

Their union has been blessed with these children:
George Roberts married Carrie Prall, who lives in Hamilton, and has two children, Eugene and Dorothy;
Daniel J. Roberts' farm is one of great natural beauty, and in size totals 121 acres.
