Who Was Abiathar Smith Robinson's Father?
If Sally Smith was his mother, what Robinsons lived nearby to have fathered him? Sally lived in Jamaica, Windham, Vermont. Jamaica is and was still a small burg but is the home of the state park so is in a beautiful setting.
In the year 2000 Jamaica had about the same population as Wenona, Illinois, the place Abiathar is buried. Jamaica only had a population of 946. Jamaica is close to the larger city of Brattleboro, which had 12,000.
No Robinsons were listed in Jamaica in 1830 but Brattleboro, Windham, VT had the following Robinson men. Archabald Robinson, John Robinson and William Jr. Robinson.
Other Robinson men were in the county of Windham. Aron and John H Robinson were in Newfane. George and George Jr. Robinson lived in Wilmington along with Sandford M. Jona lived in Wardsboro.
By 1830 George Jr. was between the ages of 20 and 30 and was still in Wilmington. So was Sanford who was between 40 and 50.
There were available Robinson men in the vicinity. I have more to check.
