Mrs. Mary Roberts Dies at Age of 82

Mrs. Mary Roberts, one of the Oakland pioneers who participated in welcoming the first overland train from the east through Oakland, was buried yesterday from St. Patrick's church in West Oakland. Mrs. Roberts was 82 years old and had resided in West Oakland since 1867, when, with her husband, the late Edward Roberts, and two children, she came from Ohio. She has lived at 412 Cedar street for 51 years. Mrs. Roberts was a native of Ireland, coming to this country when 12 years old.
