The Gov. Moses Robinson - Bakersfield, Vermont Tree Connects to our Royalton, Vermont Tree

Nadene Goldfoot
       
  Distance from Bennington, Vermont to Royalton,  Windsor, Vermont is 92.5 miles.  " In the early 18th century, small earthen roadways carried travelers by foot or horseback."  Traveling overland with heavy things was done by oxen.  "Before 1800, Vermonters walked, rode horses, or drove wagons on miserable roads if they wanted to get anywhere. Most people rarely ventured beyond their local community. Travel was mostly for the rich (who had time and money) and for the poor (who were forced to move frequently to find jobs)."
South Royalton House in Vermont
                                                                           
Bennington, Bennington, Vermont, settled by 1761

Lots and lots and lots of Robinsons were born in Bennington.

Of all the Robinson trees that exist, I think we belong to one of the most outstanding ones full of people of accomplishments.  From being prominent in the Revolutionary War to having a doctor who fought against Smallpox to each man from Captain Samuel Robinson b: 1707 on being outstanding, I found much to be proud of in our ancestors.  Many of these people originated in Bennington, Vermont. it produced Governor Moses Robinson of Vermont.  Leadership came from this line.  He died in Bennington, and had found wives from there.  

On the 1840 census I found 4 adult Robinsons listed: 

1. David Robinson--two men from 20 -30 years of age and David between age 80 - 90 (born between 1750-1760).  .
There were also  a girl between 5 and 10; 2 women between 20- 30, a woman between 30 -40,  and an older woman between 70 - 80, probably David's wife.  

2. John S. Robinson --a teen-ager between 15-20 and John between 30- 40, born 1800-1810 and his wife between 20-30 and an older woman between 50-60.  

3. Safford Robinson--a man between 30-40 and Safford between 50-60 born 1780-1790 and Safford's wife between 50-60 and an older woman between 80-90. 

4. Samuel Robinson--between 60-70 and a woman between 20 - 30 and Samuel's wife between 60 -70. born between 1770-1780

4.  Descendants of Samuel Robinson, Jr. 1 Samuel Robinson, Jr. (son of Samuel Robinson III, Col. b: 1738) b: January 05, 1774 in Bennington, Vermont d: March 10, 1851 in Bennington, Vermont .. +Sarah Harwood b: October 03, 1775 in Bennington, Vermont d: September 09, 1851 in Bennington, Vermont ?

                                                                               
Royalton, Vermont was the home of our ggrandmother and possibly our ggrandfather, Abiathar Smith Robinson.  It  had suffered from an Indian raid when our ancestors were living there.  The
town was started in 1779.  300 Indians of several tribes burned it down the next year.  A tribe
from Canada started by aiming for Newbury, Vermont first.  The family of Timothy Durkee
suffered through the burning as well as John Hutchinson and they were family.  Julia Ann Tuller was born in 1834 so was born after the Indian attack but her mother's family had been there at the time.  Royalton is where our family story really starts.  
 I've changed the parents of Abiathar Smith Robinson so that he's joined the tree belonging to two close 3rd cousin matches we have that are two ladies, not with the surname of Robinson; Ms L and Ms C.  To be 3rd cousins, we must share a gggrandfather or at least one of his brothers.  Abiathar Smith Robinson is my ggrandfather.  His missing parents are the kingpin to my relationship to Ms L and Ms C.  Now we are all sharing  my gggrandfather, Abiathar's new father-John Robinson b: 1786 in possibly Bennington, Vermont  and/or Jacob H. Robinson, his brother who died in Bakersfield, Vermont.  He could have also been born in Bennington.

Abiathar's Yhapogroup is R-L21.  This matches with a J.A. Robinson of Maine.  They have a 3 step distance between them and do not share any DNA.  I had Abiathar placed on his tree but then couldn't place our newly found real matching DNA 3rd cousins there, as we know of their tree up to this same point that confounds me. I have a feeling that some of these Robinson lines of New England are distantly related though we cannot go back that far into England.  Otherwise, how can Abiathar be on one tree and be related by Y haplogroup to another.  It also shows we both are missing some important people on our unfilled trees.

Now Abiathar's parents are : John Robinson b: 1786 of Bennington, Vermont and Elizabeth Cushman b: 1790. This makes his former selected father now his uncle.  That was Jacob H Robinson b:1790 and dying in Bakersfield, Vermont.  John was shown to have had 3 children on a census before 1850 when children were named.  3 unknown children gave me reason to pick one as Abiathar since we have not found any records as to who his parents were.  He had to have been close to Royalton somehow where he courted Julia Ann Tuller.  There had been a John Robinson living with the Tullers on the 1850 census, but he has been impossible to trace.  maybe this father I've selected, a John Robinson, is the 1850 Tuller John who was said to be born in 1799.  Maybe they didn't know his real age.

This also makes Governor Moses Robinson the uncle of Abiathar's father, John Robinson.

John also  connects with Arthur David Robinson b: 1879  who's on this tree.  Arthur lived in Bakersfield, Franklin, Vermont.  My cousin's middle name is Arthur.  Accident?  It must be.  I'm sure the family couldn't have known anyone past Abiathar.
                                                                           
Now we're on a tree with Moses Robinson, Governor of Vermont.
Descendants of MOSES ROBINSON, Governor

[1] MOSES ROBINSON, Governor b: March 22, 1740/41 in Hardwick, Worcester, Massachusetts d: May 26, 1813 in Bennington, Bennington, Vermont Occupation: Bet. 1789 - 1790 Governor of Vermont

Yorkshire, England  is where William Robinson left.  He was born in 1640
but died in 1693 in Cambridge, Middlesex, Massachusetts.  Since the Mayflower
sailed in 1620 and there was a fleet of ships that sailed to Plymouth in 1630, William
was probably at least 20 when he sailed in about 1660.  He was married to Elizabeth Cutter
born in Cambridge in 1645.
 Cambridge is the home of Harvard University.
Unless he was brought to America by his parents shortly after his birth which is possible
to have been a part of this great migration from England to America by 1642. William was the father
of this lineage with Moses Robinson and our possible line being so connected to Royalton, Vermont.   He is the originator of this Robinson tree, first to be on it. 
I haven't gone back

into English genealogy.

 From 1630 to 1642, fifteen to twenty thousand people settled in the Massachusetts Bay Colony
I also found the 1830 census for Bennington and found 4 other Robinson men and their families:

How Abiathar Smith Robinson Can Be Connected to the Morgan Horse of Vermont

Nadene Goldfoot                                       
Morgan Horse-symbol of Vermont
Designed by Justin Morgan,
father of  Almira Morgan. 
Abiathar Smith Robinson's parents may have been Hiram Robinson who married Almira Morgan, daughter of the horse breeder who created the Morgan Horse.
Descendants of Justin Morgan, Sr.

[1] Justin Morgan, Sr. b: February 28, 1746/47 in West Springfield, Massachusetts d: March 22, 1798 in Randolph, Orange, Vermont Occupation: Horse Breeder

..... +[5] HIRAM Robinson b: August 12, 1799 in Royalton, Windsor, Vermont d: Bef. July 20, 1860 in Died at Sea/Sandy Creek, Oswego, NY Occupation: 1850 Millwright

                                                                     
Abiathar's son, Frank, wanted to save his horse from the bull who was loose in the same field as his treasured horse, most likely a Morgan being that's what was being raised by Abiathar's mother-if his parents were as I suspect, Hiram Robinson and Almira Morgan.  Another indication is that Sally Durkee was married to Almira's brother, Justin Jr. Abiathar's wife, Julia Ann Tuller's mother was Asenith Durkee. 
Descendants of Asenith Asinith Durkee
Asenith Asinith Durkee b: 1814 in Royalton, Windsor County, Vermont d: 1868 in Royalton, Windsor County, Vermont/Rockwell, Illinois

.. +Almira Morgan b: Abt. 1804 in Rhode Island d: April 1888 in Sandy Creek, Oswego, NY


The families were connected.  

Hiram Robinson is a special  name.  It's the name of another man I suspected was Abiathar's father; a Hiram Robinson married to Sally Smith.  


Descendants of HIRAM ROBINSON, Jr.


HIRAM ROBINSON, Jr. b: March 18, 1809 in Jamaica, Windham,  Vermont d: 1842 in Jamaica, Windham, Vermont

.. +Sally "Sarah" Smith b: January 01, 1812 in Jamaica, Windham County, Vermont d: August 30, 1905 in Wenona, Marshall, Illinois

There was another one.

Descendants of HIRAM ROBINSON

.. +Abigail George b: October 20, 1815 in Strafford, Orange, Vermont d: February 26, 1901 in Strafford, Orange, Vermont Occupation: 1870 farmer

Sally Durkee and Asenath Durkee are 3rd cousins once removed.
Sally Durkee and Julia Ann Tuller, Asenath's daughter, are 3rd cousins twice removed.
Sally Durkee and Abiathar Smith Robinson are 5th cousins.
Julia Ann Tuller and Abiathar Smith Robinson are are actually 3rd cousins once removed among other titles like husband and wife.

"Popular children's authors, including Marguerite Henry and Ellen Feld, have portrayed the breed in their books; Henry's Justin Morgan Had a Horse was later made into a Disney movie."

I'm pursuing people who have tested their DNA now with the surname of Morgan.  Hope I get a positive response and find a descendant of Justin Morgan.  
The problem is that if it's true as it looks with my brother's match, then I cannot fit other matches to these newer Robinsons.  Wish I knew for sure who Abiathar's parents really are!

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
. Loren S. Robinson b: 1840 d: February 22, 1842
*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 Unknown Towles
Unknown Towles b: Abt. 1859 d: Bef. 1930 in Royalton, Windsor, VT
.. +Lydia E. Durkee b: July 1859 in Highgate, Franklin, VT d: Aft. 1930 in prob. Royalton, Windsor, VT Occupation: 1930 took in a widow boarder same age

The 3rd and last Towle I had in my name bank was :

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

*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:                                                                     Morgan Connection
1. Amos Robinson 1797 VT              James Robinson 1800 VT         Hiram Robinson  1799 VT
2. Amos                 1767 CT              David                  1778 NH        Amos 1767

4. Amos                 1711 MA             Jonathan              1709 NH       Amos  1711
5. Jacob                  1680 MA            John                     1671 NH       Jacob  1680                    
6 John               1641 MA      Jonathan            1645         John   1641
                                                                                                             John   1611
                                                                                        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.

March 3, 2018; I found another match to my brother's and my name but not to my Robinson cousin.  It is Leno.   He has Durkee and Robinson in his name bank.  His Durkee turns out to be our 2nd great grandmother, Julia Ann Robinson's mother's mother. We are 5th cousins.
Descendants of Asenith Asinith Durkee

Asenith Asinith Durkee b: 1814 in Royalton, Windsor County, Vermont d: 1868 in Royalton, Windsor County, Vermont/Rockwell, Illinois
.. +Alonzo Charles Tuller b: October 22, 1809 in St. Albans, Vermont (Franklin County) d: January 29, 1870 in Rockwell, LaSalle, Illinois Occupation: 1850 Stone Mason

.
This led me this on his tree, and I already had Asa Robinson on my tree with the same father of Peter.
This turned out on my tree to lead to the same Robinson line I had concluded was the right one, that led to Meppershall, England with a John Robinson.

Then the Durkee lead led me to this, that we also shared.  It turns out that it is not the same Robinson line my other DNA ladies are on.  That one seems to lead to the John Robinson who sent Pilgrims on the Mayflower.  Our Robinsons connected at one point.

[1] Ralph Heman Durkee b: August 07, 1900 in Norwich, Windsor County, Vermont d: May 23, 1985 in Thetford, Orange, Vermont 05075 Occupation: 1923 Lumberman

.. +Beatrice Helene Goodrich b: Abt. 1902 in Waltham, Massachusetts d: May 24, 1980 in Lebanon, New Hampshire
Morgan Horse, from Justin Morgan
symbol of Vermont 

Another set of parents that are more than plausible for Abiathar that would keep him on this same tree
of his Ydna matches is Hiram Robinson and Almira Morgan, daughter of the designer of the Morgan
Horse. Since James Robinson takes me to the same place that Hiram Robinson does, I'll stick with
James as the father. I've just discovered another match to my Robinson/Durkee family being Morgan
genes. This way my other 3rd cousin matches that have found their place on the tree are fine.
This does explain more to me about Abiather and his father's fight over Abiathar's horse being killed
in the field by the bull causing Abiathar to run away from home and never return. It might have been
a Morgan horse.

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.

. Alma Robinson b: 1834 in Vermont

                                                                           
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.  .
