Abiathar Smith Robinson Now Has a New York Born Father Like He Said He Did

Nadene Goldfoot                            
Well, I did it again.  Through DNA testing and finding one specific match, I've changed parents on Abiathar Smith Robinson b: 1829.  My cousins are going to kill me.  But this one looks good.
We find that Abiathar said on one census that he was from New York.  I thought he was a die-hard and just refused to admit that Vermont had taken some of New York's land and now places were called Vermont.  His new father is Israel Robinson born in New York!  So were his siblings.  Abiathar had told my grandfather, Frank Hugh Robinson b: Wenona, Marshall, Illinois in 1871, that his family had come over not on the Mayflower of 1620 but a ship after that.  Well, John Robinson, Rev, didn't come over even though he got the Pilgrims to board the ship and leave Holland, but his son, Isaac, did and probably populated most of New England.  Robinson has been the 16th most popular surname in the USA, found in the north AND the south.
Descendants of ISRAEL ROBINSON   The problem here is that Roxbury is a good 200 miles, and Broome County 260 some miles from Royalton, Windsor, Vermont where Abiathar met Julia Ann Tuller at the Tuller house in 1850 or not but married her in Tunbridge, next door to Royalton in 1852.  

1   ISRAEL ROBINSON b: April 20, 1800 in Roxbury, Delaware , NY d: November 11, 1867 in Kattelville, Broome, New York
.. +Catherine Tracy b: 1800 in NY d: August 05, 1882 in Broome, New York
. 2   EBENEZER GANONG Robinson b: May 1823 in Dutchess County, New York d: Aft. 1900 in Clark County, Washington
..... +Julia Ann Morse b: June 05, 1828 in Roxbury, Delaware, NY d: 1916 in Clark County, Washington

. 2   Abiathar SMITH Robinson b: 1829 New York or Vermont d: 1904 Wenona, Marshall, Illinois
.........+Julia Ann Tuller b: 1834 d: Wenona, Marshall, Illinois
. 2   Susan C. Robinson b: 1838 in New York

They connect to Reverend Daniel Robinson b: 1771 in Carmel, Putnam, New York.
Then he connects to Major Ebenezer Robinson born 1735 Rehoboth, Bristol, Massachusetts Bay, English Colony who was in the Revolutionary War.

The next connection is to Peter Robinson born 1785 Rehoboth, Bristol, Massachusetts Bay, English Colony.

John Weeks Robinson, Jr. is the next connection b: 1667 Falmouth, Barnstable Co, Massachusetts

John Robinson and Elizabeth Weeks are the next connection of 1640 in Barnstable, Barnstable County, Massachusetts

Issac Robinson was in the Netherlands
Descendants of Isaac Robinson

1   [1] Isaac Robinson b: Bet. 1610 - 1620 in Reusel-de Mierden, Noord-Brabant, Netherlands, Leiden, Holland d: 1704 in Barnstable, Barnstable County, Massachusetts
.. +Margaret Hanford b: 1619 in Fremington, Devon, England d: Bef. June 13, 1649 in Barnstable, Barnstable County, Massachusetts
*2nd Wife of [1] Isaac Robinson:
.. +Mary Faunce b: July 25, 1628 in Plymouth, Massachusetts d: Aft. November 08, 1699 in Plymouth, Massachusetts
His father, and last I'll mention now, is THE John Robinson, Reverend who sent the Pilgrims on the Mayflower in 1620.  
Descendants of JOHN (Rev.) Robinson
1   JOHN (Rev.) Robinson b: Bet. 1575 - 1576 in Sturton Nottinghamshire, or Lincolnshire, England d: February 19, 1624/25 in Leyden, Holland
.. +Bridget White b: 1579 in Sturton Nottinghamshire, England d: 1643 in Massachusetts

I just hope this works out since our Robinson Y DNA is R-L21 or R1b1a2a1a1b4.  
Please let me know if descendants of this Reverend have the same haplotype or if DYS 393 being a 12 and others a 13 is not unusual.

I have several ladies that we share genes with that are Robinson DNA connections.  One is Sheri and the other is Cheryl.   Cheryl is a 3rd cousin to my brother and myself, 4th to my  1st maternal male cousin, a Robinson.
Sheri is a 3rd cousin to all three of us.  I have 4 segments on the X chromosome and my brother has one with Sherie.  That means our mother matches with Sherie's mother since a male has the Y.

One of the men I thought could be his father was a John Robinson who was 51 in 1850, staying with the Tullers in Royalton, Vermont.  When I did a workup of his possible parents, I wound up with John Robinson, also, and thought it was impossible.  All roads do not lead to John Robinson, Rev.  There were other Robinson families who immigrated to America.  I think this is the 12th possible set of parents, now.  Hope among them the real one exists.
