Little is known about George S. Roberts except that he was a boarding student at Benjamin Hallowell's academy in Alexandria, Virginia in 1855. Roberts may have been a son of Dr. George C.M. Roberts, but this information has not been verified. Hallowell was a Quaker schoolmaster, scientist and farmer.
