The purpose of this website is to honor our ancestors by preserving the history and heritage of the Roberts Switch community and to keep residents and friends informed regarding community events.
"As we learn about our ancestors and attempt to gather up the scattered fragments remaining from their lives, we are impressed with how quickly the many details of life's drama - its joys and sorrows, it struggles and triumphs, its dreams and disappointments - are all erased. Often all that remains of our ancestor's stories are colorless statistics: when they were born, where they lived, the children they bore, and when they died. We come away with a sense of our mortality and the conviction that nothing of all that happens under the sun truly matters, save a life sincerely and devoutly consecrated to Jesus Christ."

Cronk Reunion 2022 Photo Gallery William Alexander Cronk married Malissa Roberts, d/o Joseph Roberts & Rachel Carter. He was ambushed and killed on his way to Nashville to muster into the Union Army in Oct 1863. Malissa left with seven kids to raise. Great hardship, but their descendants abound in this area and beyond. Great reunion. Enjoyed by all.
