April 9, 1913 Goshen, USA Goshen. April 9 – Peter Roberts, a highly respected citizen and faithful Latter-Day-Saint of this place died April 4. Funeral services were held in the Goshen assembly room April 8, the bishopric presiding. The presidency of the Nebo stake with several members of the high council (of which the deceased had been a member) were on the stand. The speakers referred to the sterling quality of Elder Roberts, as a stakes and ward worker and a faithful Latter-Day Saint. Beautiful singing was rendered. The presence of the stake presidency, the large assembly and the lengthy cortege made manifest the esteem in which the deceased was held in the community. Peter Roberts was the son of Ann Pool and Peter Roberts. He was born at Newmarket, Flintshire, Wales 1829 where he accepted the gospel and was baptized. He married Harriet Jones, and about 1856 they moved to the county of Durham, where he became president of the Spinney Moore and other branches of the Church and where he proved himself a live, active, energetic messenger of the gospel. It was here his first wife died about 1860, and he married Phoebe Richardson. In 1863 with other member of the Church, he came to America. They found employment as coal miners in Fallbrook, Pa., where they were joined by their families. They came to Utah and later came to Goshen, which since has been his home. In 1870 he was again bereft of his wife and he married Sarah Price, whom he now leaves with two sons and one daughter, John and Nicholas Roberts of Goshen and Mrs. D.C. Dora of Ogden, with a number of grandchildren. At the organization of the Nebo stake in 1901, he was one of its first high councilors which office he filled with honor until honorably released in 1910. He was ever active, and it can be said of him, he was valiant, faithful and true.
