Chosen Through DNA Matches, Abiathar Smith Robinson's Father

Nadene Goldfoot                                          
Ah, shucks.  It has taken DNA matches to veer me straight into Abiathar Smith Robinson's father and he isn't a John after all.  It has to be Israel Robinson born in 1800 which isn't far off of the pre-thought John Robinson, living in Julia Ann Tuller's home in 1850 in Royalton Vermont that I thought might be his father.  This line is connected to the 17 Bartletts we have, and a lot of Smiths connected to them.  It was the Robinson and Bartlett surnames that led me to someone I had matched several years ago on 23& Me, and now we had both moved over to Family Tree DNA and have been really working on it.  Between here and GedMatch and trying our hand at triangulation with another match, we finally found a connection on the tree.

The oral history of Abiathar coming from NY seems to hold water now.  I don't know what I"ll do about other stories like the Rix part of the family.  Maybe that will connect.  One can see from this tree that people had more than 2 children long ago, so maybe there's also another path other than all this one that will connect.

No, Israel is going to head straight to THE JOHN RobinsonREVEREND and BRIDGET WHITE who sent Pilgrims living in Holland to America on the Mayflower after all.  What I'm going to do about our DNA DYS 393 being a 12, and not a 13, I don't know.  but we match a DNA match found on FTDNA, and this is science.  I cannot ignore this match that we have with myself, my brother and 1st male cousin.  We're collecting more matches besides to ultimately connect to our tree through DNA.  I'll show our tree from Major Ebenezer Robinson:
PS, I see this line also holds another try at Abiathar's father where I show Abiathar in blue.  I once thought that the James Robinson could have been his father.

Some people don't understand why we pursue such a hobby as genealogy.  Well, it's personal.  It's our family and who we come from.  It's why we laugh or cry, feel nervous or sad or happy.  We are made up of certain people throughout the ages and inherit some of their traits as well as their faults, problems, etc.  Now, the finding of others, knowing we share something of ourselves with them, is detective work.  It's solving a puzzle work.  It's so exciting to track down a clue.  The ultimate now is to have their picture and information automatically click into my tree once I find where they belong on my FTDNA tree !
