Amos III Robinson's Father: From Royalton to Illinois

Amos Robinson Jr. was involved with moving to Illinois very early from Royalton, Vermont. Perhaps he is the reason that Abiathar Smith, my gggrandfather moved there. He is the father of Amos III Robinson.

10/24/04 This Amos went to Illinois first and died there. His son Amos III finally moved there to be with his siblings, perhaps. Now this is questionable. He was found in Wisconsin in 1860-1870.10/27/04 from Centenial History of Decatur and Macon County: The Robinson FamilyOne early settler, who entered, from the government, land which is now a part of the city, was Amos Robinson, who came in 1830 from Royalton, Vt. The Robinson, the Packard, and the Hunting families came together to Macon county. A letter written by Mrs. Robinson to home folks, on Sept 8, tells of their safe arrival after a fatiguing journey. They had arrived July 26, 1830. On Sept. 8, the day the letter was written, Mr. Packard died. Mrs. Robinson deplored the fact that they were all ill with the chills and ague and unable to attend the funeral of their friend, Mr. Packard. that was Silas Packard, Sr., father of the Silas Packard whose name appears elsewhere in the history of the county. He lived only about 6 years after coming here, but was active during those early years in the history of the county. He was one of the men who helped to build the old log court hose. The land was in the west section of the city. The Springfield road (now West Main street and Route 10) passed through their land. It was part of this land which later came into possession of James Milliken, and became the site of his home and the university.
