St. Albans:Was Abiathar From Here?
Theory: St. Albans, Vermont may be birthplace of Abiathar Smith Robinson.
St Albans is near New York. Abiathar said he was born in New York. Vermont was admitted iinto the Union on March 4, 1791. He was born in 1829, only some 40 years later. To many families, that may have been New York.
Three Robinson families lived in St. Albans in 1830 that are on the census: They were all on the same page.
1. Henry Robinson : had a boy under age of 5: We have many by this name.
2. Joseph Robinson: He was born in Royalton, Vermont in 1793; perfect age to be father.
3. Silas Robinson : had a boy under age of 5
Four Smith families lived in St. Albans in 1830 that are on the census. They were all on the same page..with the Robinsons.
1. John Smith
2. Ashbell Smith
3. Worthington Smith
4. Samuel Smith : I have a person by this name b: in 1809 in Jamaica, VT.
Seven Tuller families lived in St. Albans in 1830 that are on the census. These Tullers are related to us.
1. Almond Tuller
2. Franklin Tuller
3. Hiram Tuller
4. Orin Tuller
5. Reuben Tuller
6. Reuben Jr. Tuller
7. Samuel Tuller : He is the father of Alonzo Charles Tuller.
Abiathar and Julia Ann may have come together because of family connections.
Consequently, let’s look at the New York possibility.
There were twelve Tuller families in New York in 1830. Some of them have been identified as to being on our family tree of Tullers. They were living in:
1. Sheridan, Chautaugua, NY (Anson and Meiry Tuller)
2. Bergen, Genesee, NY (Jacob Tuller)
3. Leyden, Lewis, NY (Joseph Tuller)
4. Paris, Oneida, NY (Orlando A. Tuller)
