Roberts Chapel was originally located in Hall Township, near Ellsworth. Rev. Marvin Ellis is said to have been the first pastor. According to George R. Wilson's History  of Dubois County, the church was torn down in 1908. The cemetery was located about 1/4 mile from the church. This site now lies beneath Patoka Lake, and all known burials have been  relocated to Patoka Memorial Cemetery.
Approximately 130 graves were moved November 15, 16, and 17, 1976. About 50 are unidentified, and have numbered markers. The listing below consists of the markers I found to be visible in October, 2009. Some flush markers, including the numbered ones, are being overgrown with sod, and are somewhat difficult to see.
