Robinson: Scotch Irish Family
Scottish, Scotch-Irish, and English Immigration, 1715-1775
I came across your blog while researching my family and I do believe we may be distant relatives! My mother was a Robinson from Decatur IL the 1855 Amos Robinson is my 3x grandfather decending to Percy Issac and Harry W Robinson. Oddly enough I live just south of your Hillsboro Oregon relatives! I would love to find out if I am correct! Also I just got my DNA results from AncestryDNA and I am 59% Irish, as my father side is also from Wales. Now I know it's from my mothers side too!
How interesting. If you tested with ancestry, now transfer your results to GedMatch.com. It's a free site and has other tools to use for comparisons, triangulations, etc. most interesting. All my relatives' results are there and mine, of course. We could compare and see if we share some DNA.
Another opinion; Shipped off to Ireland from Kentucky! How awful! That says a lot for your male line in that your William was the oldest man in America in 1939. Maybe all that hard work was the secret to longevity, and that sense of humor.
Gosh, when working on my XP, I could answer each person individually and was notified through email when someone wrote a comment. Now on this 10, nothing like that is happening. That's why I'm answering 3 months late.
