Rockingham New Hampshire Robinsons

Nadene Goldfoot   
Abiathar Smith Robinson's picture from cousin Tom
a younger Abiathar than our picture.
                                        
We are blessed with my mother's maiden name of Robinson, the 16th most popular surname in the United States.  Our ggrandfather was Abiathar Smith Robinson b: 1829 in Vermont.  His wife was Julia Ann Tuller b: 1834 in Royalton, Windsor, Vermont.  They married in Tunbridge, Orange, Vermont right next door to Royalton in 1852.  Abiathar was not on any census in Vermont in 1850, but Julia Ann and her parents were.  They've been easy to trace.  Not Abiathar.  Not until DNA testing started opening some doors.

I should explain that I have been hunting Robinsons for years and years.  I've had about a dozen conclusions about finding the right Robinson.  Every Robinson in New England is in my Family Tree Maker software program.  I have found so many interesting possibilities that I'd be proud to have each and every one for my ancestors.

On To Tonight's Search.
                                                                             
Tunbridge, Orange, Vermont
First, I've found 3 ladies who match my male 1st cousin, Ken Robinson, my brother and myself.  They all have Robinson on their tree.  Then I found 3 men with Ken's Y haplogroup, R-L21, a rather rare R halplogroup.  They all used the same tree leading through Rockingham, New Hampshire and onto Meppershall, England.
Abiahar Smith Robinson and his son (my grandfather)
Frank Hugh Robinson
They were farmers and had horses.  
That's fine as our oral history from Grandfather Frank Hugh Robinson b: 1871 in Wenona, Marshall, Illinois was that their people came over not on the Mayflower but the ship after that.  Well, who were his people?  Robinsons?  I didn't find any from Pastor John Robinson, who sent the Pilgrims on the Mayflower from Holland that matched our R-L21 haplogroup though there were Rs.  I don't think they've tested.
                                                                             
I needed a way to join onto the Rockingham Robinson tree, whose main creator was in Maine, a neighbor of Vermont.  Finally, my last decision was in looking into Tunbridge and finding a suitable father for Abiathar, sort of.  Tunbridge was full of Robinsons, Tullers and Durkees.   Julia's mother was a Durkee.   I played around with him and dicovered that he of all people, connected to the Rockingham Robinson tree!                           
1st Cousins Kenny and myself


One of my lady matches just told me to go back into Gedmatchcom and compare Ken with all the R-L21 men.  This includes the old title of R1b1a2a1a1b4.  Some people who entered there were using that title a few years ago.

I found 3 men.  One had an interesting surname and I checked it in my name bank.  I hit gold!

Descendants of Joseph Sanborn Robinson

[1] Joseph Sanborn Robinson b: May 28, 1812 in Brentwood, Rockingham, New Hampshire d: August 29, 1887 in Brentwood, Rockingham, New Hampshire
.. +Martha T. b: 1816 d: 1846

*2nd Wife of [1] Joseph Sanborn Robinson:
.. +Angelina Towle b: June 04, 1816 d: July 17, 1784
. Alfred I. Robinson b: 1849 d: 1849

That was the first Towle.  Now the 2nd connection: Durkee is the surname of Julia Tuller's mother.

Descendants of John Towle
John Towle b: Abt. 1609 in Meppershal, Bedfordshire, England
.. +Alice Robinson b: Abt. 1616 in Meppershal, Bedfordshire, England

Our Towle match turns out to be a 4th cousin, also found on FTDNA where we tested. By having a
DNA match with him and finding 3 people on the Tree with the same surname, I figure that
this is the tree we are from.

That clinches it.  I do believe now without batting an eye that we belong on this tree.  Who our common ancestor is, I don't know, but I bet our ancestors in Tunbridge, Vermont knew.  If only they could tell me!

The conundrum in all this is that my 3 matching ladies fit into the Rev. John Robinson who is married to Bridget White, who sent the Pilgrims on the Mayflower in 1620.  It's a large and well-known tree.

Update: 9:20am..In checking my past assumptions, the 1st one I had decided on was this one:
Descendants of AMOS Robinson IV

[1] AMOS Robinson IV b: December 28, 1797 in Royalton, Windsor County, Vermont d: August 07, 1871 in Menasha, Wisc-hit by lightening while helping another farmer-hay caused it. Occupation: 1860 Carpenter in Wisconsin
. +Betsey Davis b: 1795 in Royalton, Vermont d: September 15, 1824 in Brownell house, Broad Brook,  Royalton, Vermont age 23
*2nd Wife of [1] AMOS Robinson IV:
. +LOIS SAFFORD b: December 04, 1800 in Royalton, Windsor, Vermont d: 1882 in prob. Menasha Ward 1, Winnebago, Wisconsin

They were from the same city that Julia Ann Tuller was from, which is next door to Tunbridge.  Guess what.  It leads to the desired Tree-The Rockingham, New Hampshire Tree that ends in Meppershall, England!  I was right after all!    I've got to check this out again.  Is my face ever red!
There must be a connection to the 2 lines and they merged!

This is how they compare:
1. Amos Robinson 1797 VT              James Robinson 1800 VT
2. Amos                 1767 CT              David                  1778 NH
3. Amos                 1734 MA             Chase                  1737 NH
4. Amos                 1711 MA             Jonathan              1709 NH
5. Jacob                  1680 MA            John                     1671 NH
6. John                    1641 MA           Jonathan               1645 MA, brothers, son of  John 1611
7. JOHN                 1611 ENG.        JOHN                    1611 ENG (MEPPERSHALL)
My two ladies that match as us as 3rd cousins come out on the Pastor John Robinson of the Pilgrims Tree.
Yet, it's all much guesswork.  Now I should go back and recheck references if possible.

Abiathar Smith Robinson's Father May have Been James Robinson From Tunbridge, Orange, Vermont

Nadene Goldfoot                                       
                                                                                 
TUNBRIDGE, ORANGE, VERMONT
Farming was the occupation of men in those days
Our ggrandfather, Abiathar Smith Robinson b: 1829, is not to be found anywhere to show who his parents were.  It's as if he dropped out of the sky.

Orange, Vermont holds many of the towns that people moved around often.

Towns in Orange County:
Bradford
Braintree
Brookfield
Chelsea
Corinth
Fairlee
Newbury
Orange
Randolph
Strafford
Thetford
Topsham
Tunbridge
Vershire
Washington
West Fairlee
Williamstown
                                                                     
                                                                                 
Ancestry might have added more information since I last had used it in my Robinson searches, but it dawned on me that his father may have been from Tunbridge, Orange, Vermont because he and Julia Ann Tuller married there instead of Royalton, Vermont which is almost next door.  Tunbridge is full of Julia's relatives as well;  Tullers and her mother's people.  The map shows that Tunbridge, Orange, Vermont and Royalton, Windsor, Vermont are right across from each other.

The only clue I've had to work with is that our cousin, Ken Robinson, took FTDNA's DNA tests, and his Y haplogroup is R-L21.  Two other men match him and they are of the line that goes back to Meppershall, England which is through Rockingham, New Hampshire.

As you will see, James already has a child born in 1829, so Abiathar is out of place here, but that doesn't rule out some attachment, as a cousin.  I'll look into that possibility of perhaps his father had died and he knew James as a place to stay with temporarily that didn't show up on a census.

James Robinson , born June 16, 1800 in Strafford, Orange,  Vermont, was living in Tunbridge in 1860 and 1870.  He died there on October 29, 1878.  Being there were other Robinsons there, too, I figure that the odds were pretty good that James was related to Abiathar, either as his father or perhaps an uncle or even a cousin.  Mary Bicknell: December 6, 1802 in Chelsea, Orange, Vermont,  was his wife.  She died in Tunbridge, too.
                                                                   
James's father was David Robinson born in 1775 in Meredith, Belknap, New Hampshire.  He died in West Fairlee, Orange, Vermont.   His wife was listed as Marth Gripp, but it could have also been Tripp as the cursive letter looked more like a T than a G to me.  Sometimes you wonder about these translators.  T was turning out to be a popular initial in this group of people, too.  There was a Tripp or Trip  in my name bank already. 

David, and I must say that I had zillions of David Robinsons in my name bank making this very difficult, had parents named Chase Robinson and Priscilla Pratt.  Now this is leading to the DNA Y haplogroup match of James Robinson  that my cousin Kenneth has who has traced his line to the same people.  This line will go to Stratham, Rockingham, New Hampshire.
                                                                     
Exeter, Rockingham, New Hampshire today
David's parents were Jonathan Robinson and  Mary Mercy Chase in Exeter and Stratham, Rockingham, New Hampshire.

Jonathan's parents were John III Robinson and Mehitable Stanyan, still in Exeter, New Hampshire.

John's parents were Jonathan  Robinson and  Sarah Scribner in Haverhill and Exeter, New Hampshire. John was born in 1645.

Jonathan's parents were John Robinson Sr. and  Elizabeth Trickley.  John sailed from Meppershall, Bedfordshire, England and died in Exeter, Rockingham, New Hampshire on September 10, 1675
Considering that the Mayflower had sailed in 1620, that isn't much after the following armada of ships that returned to Massachusetts in 1630.  Our oral history had said that our ancestors came over on a ship after the Mayflower.                         
                                                                         
                                                                   
   Abiathar's Y haplogroup is found by his great grandson, Ken Robinson and is R-L21.  It was originally labeled as R1b1a2a1a1b4. So it was an R1b and the origin seems to be the British Isles with the 393 allele being a 12 and not a 13 which shows a more Irish origin. 
Getting back to Ken's Y haplogroup and match with James and Richard  Robinson, it is R-L21.
Richard is R-M269 and James is R-FGC5511.  All come from R1b1a2 before updating and being given new tags.   There are only 3 people with this haplogroup bearing the surname of Robinson.

Richard Robinson at 24 generations ago would have a 99.67% chance of sharing a common ancestor.
James Robinson at 24 generations ago would have a 99.92 % chance of sharing a common ancestor.

It is so difficult to follow Robinsons from one generation to another.  One must use the census carefully as there are common first names used by everyone.  Any information before the 1850 census is iffy.  Family trees help if they relied on actual family records recorded in their bibles or something similar.  That's what I used to get started, my grandmother's Swedish Bible with a family tree recorded.  I've used ancestry.com for all my searches and the LDS website, Family Search, occasionally.

King Charles I of England & Scotland
According to the Stewart Stuart DNA Project House of Stuart, who ruled Scotland from 1371, then also England and Ireland from 1603 until 1707, belongs to the S781 branch of R1b-L21, downstream of DF13 and L744.

Grover Cleveland
Grover Cleveland (1837-1908), the 22nd and 24th president of the United States, could have belonged to R1b-L20, a subclade of L2, based on the numerous results from the Cleveland DNA Project.

This is pretty amazing because I had discovered through Abiathar's wife, Julia Ann Tuller, that her ancestor connects to the kings and Grover Cleveland in one of my theories as to who our gggrandfather was.  .

Searching Robinsons in Orange County, Vermont

Nadene Goldfoot                                     
East Fairlee, Orange, Vermont
                                                           
I was looking through the deceased listing on findagrave.com, complaining to myself about their new face now that they've sold their website to ancestry.com I think, and looking at a John A. Robinson born in 1826 for a forgotten reason, and found his death certificate on ancestry.  It was quite a good one, telling that his father was David Robinson.  I found one in my program  b: 1797.  He had moved to West Fairlee!  Now I have 50 million David Robinsons collected in my Family Tree Maker software program.  John was buried in West Fairlee, Orange, Vermontl. This David had to have been John's father.  I added him to the family.  The only problem is that Preston, already on the census, was listed having been born on the same date.  How could that be?  John A had to be a part of this West Fairlee family.  A twin?  Hmm.  Another David in West Fairlee?  The few records I did find all said that David was born in Massachusetts and the one I chose was.  That's why he fits the puzzle.

Here's another tree in my Family Tree Maker. This David already has a son John listed. West Fairlee?
Hadn't found that among his history a few years ago.  I'll have to try to get more information.
Descendants of DAVID Robinson

Did our ggrandfather, Abiathar Smith Robinson know of this family?
Did he live with any of this family since he was not on the 1850 census in Royalton, Windsor, Vermont?
He was not on Tunbridge, Orange, Vermont census, either but married there in 1852. He wasn't on any 1850 census, missed by census takers everywhere.

Who was the John Robinson in Royalton living with Abiarhar's future wife, Julia Ann Tuller's family,  found on the 1850 census at age 51?  This fact makes me wonder about all John Robinsons in the area.  This one was then born in 1799 or thereabouts the way people reported ages.  Unless they spoke to the person in question, they were capable of getting an assortment of guessed answers.
One can see that West Fairlee is close to Tunbridge
where our ggrandparents married in 1852, making
Strafford and the surrounding towns all the more relevant.

Generation No. 1

1.  JOHN A.8 ROBINSON  (DAVID7, ZADOCK6, DANIEL5, EBENEZER4, SAMUEL GEORGE3, GEORGE2, PHILIP1) was born September 11, 1826 in Rehoboth, Massachusetts, and died August 06, 1890 in West Fairlee, Orange, Vermont.  He married MARY D..  She was born 1832 in Vermont.

Notes for JOHN A. ROBINSON:
11/16/17 read the death certificate for John A Robinson who died in West Fairlee and was born 1827 in Rehoboth, Massachusetts, a laborer. 
His father was David Robinson.  I started hunting and found this father both in Mass and West Fairlee, Vermont!!! He has to be the father but did not have a John listed as a son on any of the other pieces of information I had found-trees from other people, probably, because of the age under 1850 census.
                                                                           
Ely had a copper mine, no wonder people moved there.

The Abiathar Robinson Mystery: Key May Be Tunbridge Cemetery--Scene of Marriage

Nadene Goldfoot                                             

The mystery man is our ggrandfather, Abiathar Smith Robinson b: December 1829 in Vermont?  New York?  He was married to Julia Ann Tuller of Royalton, Windsor, Vermont on December 18, 1834. Finding his father means finding the rest of the ancestors.  Our grandfather's oral history was that his people came over not on the Mayflower but the ship after that.  It was John Robinson, Reverend in Holland who sent the Pilgrims over on the Mayflower.  Many people are descendants of him.  However, a lot of other male Robinsons also came over during this period and landed in Massachusetts, then spread out over the whole New England area. Many were named, John Robinson.   The Civil War era even brought them to the South.
                                                                                 
I cannot help thinking that Abiathar's New York birthplace proclamation on the 1900 census of Wenona Marshall, Illinois was incorrect.  Maybe his 2nd wife gave this false information to the census taker.  The 1870 and 1880 censuses claimed Vermont.

I have scoured the findagrave sites for Robinsons in many towns in Vermont looking for clues.  Strafford held many Robinsons.


PANEL 1 (1-12) 
We have a DNA Y haplogroup match of 2 men who match my male Robinson cousin.  It is a rare reading of a common haplogroup that men carry.  R-L21.  The first allele is a 12 and not a 13, making it unique among the R haplogroup men.

Ireland is the country with the most matches to my Robinson cousin.  26 perfect matches out of 140 tested  which is a 0.2% (genetic distance of 1)  and he had 4 perfect matches from 
261400.2%
 England out of 39,976 tested which was a 0.1%).
                                                                     
I have worked very hard trying to connect our tree to theirs and come out with the farthest ancestor being in Meppershall, England.  Now I see that the man ending in Meppershall must have an ancestor that we have, but we don't necessarily have to be on target ending in Meppershall.  I found such an ancestor.
                                                                           
Our haplogroup match had many Robinsons in Rockingham County, New Hampshire.  However, we do not have a DNA segment match with any of these haplogroup matches.  They all came from the same branch but weren't family-related.
                                                                               
 Yesterday, after sending me part of his tree, I started searching with a new father for Abiathar, one I suspected many years ago who was in Royalton, Vermont.  It was Cyrus B. Robinson b: 1808 in Royalton, Windsor, Vermont where Abiathar's wife, Julia Ann Tuller, was from.
                                                                               
Cyrus's wife was Thankful, Preston.  The Prestons were from Strafford and Sharon, Vermont.   Cyrus's father was Daniel Robinson, Jr. b: 1769 in either Massachusetts or Rushville, Yates, New York.
                                                                           
Strafford, Orange, Vermont
Ah ha!  Daniel's  wife was Betsey Elizabeth Buel.  Both died in Strafford, Orange, Vermont.  Orange is the county very close to Royalton which includes Tunbridge, the town where Abiathar and Julia Ann married.  Strafford turned out to be quite a key to my search.  It also holds a lot of Robinsons in its cemetery.

Descendants of CYRUS B. ROBINSON, another possible father of Abiathar Smith Robinson.

I had previously chosen Hiram Robinson b: 1806 in Strafford and his wife, Zeruiah as possible parents, and it turns  out according to my FAMILY TREE MAKER  software program that Hiram and Cyrus as 5th cousins. 

I started to find more information about Thankful Preston and found more.  Her family had been in Rockingham, New Hampshire!

Six more generations back and I come to John  Robinson b: 1611  of Meppershall, England- if my figuring is correct. Too bad one of these Robinson men couldn't be Abiathar's father being they came from Royalton, Vermont.  I found their names in the book about Royalton.  "History of Royalton, Vermont, with family genealogies, 1769-1911, by Mary Evelyn Wood Lovejoy" - Book is available online.
                                               
Chester, Rockingham, New Hampshire, home of early American clock making
I found we have some Rockingham Robinsons in common:
I found them when I worked on Ben Flanders' family.  They were on the same census page .  I found the Flanders through the Prestons. 
It goes like this:
                                               
Ned Flanders, cartoon character in The Simpsons
Ben Flanders b: 1803 is the brother of Jesse Flanders b: 1800, Jesse's son is  Henry J. Flanders b: 1827 and he is married to Edna Robnson, the sister supposedly of Abiathar Smith Robinson.  Edna and Abiathar are the children of Cyrus B. Robinson in this case and Thankful Preston.                          
               
William Preston
1742-1818 Scotland
Author, Freemason
                                             
William Preston

Movie Actor
      
Thankful Preston b: 1811 is the daughter of Edward Preston b: 1773 of Chester, Rockingham, New Hampshire.  

Ben was on the same census page as Jesse Robinson and Jonathan Robinson.  I just tracked them down.  I had just kept researching the people connected to each other.

This is John Robinson, head of New Hampshire Historical Society.
His ancestor was a Revolutionary war soldier,also John Robinson, a descendant of the Mayflower
passenger, Degory Priest, on the family farm on Chemung Road, Meredith, New Hampshire
Degory was #29 of the 41 aboard and signed the Mayflower Compact on November 11, 1620.
He was a hatmaker from London. (http://www.nhcommentary.com/mayflower_history.html)
I wonder if he's had a DNA test yet and what his Y haplotype is?

Our connection to the Maryland Robinsons who were first in Rockingham, New Hampshire must be through Jesse and Jonathan, and this is why we share the male Robinson line but not any DNA individually.

I found a Charles Robinson b: 1827-28 born in Northfield, Washington, Vermont who died in Randolph, Orange, Vermont in 1897.  He was born one or two years before Abiathar.  A possible brother?  Anything with Abiathar is possible if they're from Vermont. Charles married his 3rd wife in 1891 in Randolph.  I've found 4 wives, and this one was listed on Vermont Vital Records.

The parents of Charles were David Robinson b: 1799 and Sarah Denny of Northfield, Washington, Vermont.  Grandparents were Ezekiel Robinson, Col. b: 1769 who died in Stowe, Vermont, and Dinah Doubeday, both of Massachusetts.   Ggrandparents were Nathaniel Robinson, Deacon and Judge b: 1729 and Keziah Robbins, both also born in Massachusetts, people already on my other trees.

I didn't have Charles on this tree before snooping into the graveyard.  This tree ends with a George Robinson of Glasgow, Scotland, a fitting one for our Robinson Y haplotype, I must say.

Abiathar could easily be in this next tree:

Charles L. Robinson b: 1864 is also a part of this tree, and he was listed on findagrave.com. Charles
was the son of Daniel and Eloise A. Fulham. He died in 1882, born and died in Strafford .

Parents of Hiram were Daniel Robinson 1769 and Betsy Buel, Grandparents were Daniel 1734 and
Lucretia Parse; Ggrandparents were Ebenezer 1697 and Elizabeth Reed, Gggrandparents were
Samuel 1654 and Mehitalbe Reed, and Ggggrandparents were our familiar George b: 1626 of
Glasgow, Scotland. Have I now found the tree that Abathar belongs on? It looks good. These former
Scots seemed to settle in the same towns of Vermont. Interesting.

My first consideration of a father for Abiathar was another Hiram Robinson connected to Wenona,
Vermont.

I thought that being Sally Robinson lived here and must be Abiathar's mother, this was why he returned
from Canada to Wenona, Illinois of all places. Sally and Hiram had been from Vermont and he had
died so young at age 30. She had remarried a Thomas Russell and had 4 more children, a boy and 3 girls.

Other interesting Hiram Robinsons I have found in the past when their towns meant nothing to me:
 Hiram Robinson Walpole, Cheshire, New Hampshire  1830  age 21; Abiathar had been born in 1829.
 Hiram Robinson Concord, Merrimack, New Hampshire  1830
 Hiram Robinson Chenango, Broome, New York  1830
 Hiram Robinson Jackson, Washington, New York 1830

New Hampshire leads to our Y haplogroup match.
Chenango, Brome, New York leads to our DNA segment match of 3rd cousin.
I see a Hiram no matter who in our past!  Not as a gggrandfather but as his brother or ggggrandfather.
