Searching Jamaica, Vermont for Robinsons Moving to Tunbridge or Royalton Like Abiathar Smith Robinson, Son of Hiram
|Jamaica, Vermont-1895 by Theodore Robinson|
He was an artist and this is one of his many oil paintings.

|Jamaica, Vermont 1907|
Now to find other Jamaicans who moved from Jamaica to Royalton or next door to Tunbridge, Vermont which Abiathar did since he met and married Julia Ann Tuller in Royalton. They married in Tunbridge on February 29, 1852. Was this leap year?
Today there are 7 Robinsons who are living in Jamaica, Vermont with many living in the surrounding areas. I have found 14 male Robinsons on findagrave who died there in the early days:
