Roberts died in January 2010 at his home in Malibu, California.


Pernell Roberts played oldest brother Adam, Dan Blocker played middle brother Hoss and Michael Landon played youngest brother Little Joe.


For a time, it appeared that Roberts' character, Adam Cartwright, would marry his fiancee Laura Dayton (played by Kathie Browne) and ride off into the sunset. But Laura chose Adam's cousin Will (played by Guy Williams) instead. When the next season of "Bonanza" rolled around, it was mentioned that Adam was at sea.

Lorne Greene played patriarch Ben Cartwright, Pernell Roberts played Adam, Dan Blocker played Hoss and Michael Landon played Little Joe.


He did have a son when he left the series so maybe he did.


In the first episode Adam is 29, Hoss is 23, and Joe is 17


Because there wasn't one. The premise was Adam went to Australia and the writers left to storyline open in case actor Pernell Roberts wanted to come back to the role of Adam.


That was Geraldine Brooks (born Geraldine Stroock). She played the role of Elizabeth Stoddard . The episode was "Elizabeth, My Love", which aired on May 27, 1961.
