Vermont: Abounding with Nearby Robinsons to Abiathar Smith Robinson
In trying to find who could be Abiathar's father, as he appeared marrying Julia Ann Tuller of Royalton, Vermont in February 1852 from Tunbridge, where they married. Tunbridge is in Orange County and Royalton is in Windsor County, and they kept excellent records in Orange, or at least retrievable ones that I've found on familysearch and ancestry.com and findagrave. One family could have 10 children and soon the area was loaded with Robinsons who moved out as farmers into nearby communities seeking land for farming. I thought Hiram was as good as any other prospect. Incidentally, New England was also full of Hiram Robinsons. In my own name bank, I've counted 16.
|Frank Hugh Robinon's son, Edward Kenneth Robinson, born 1915,|
he bears his grandfather Abiathar's shape of head and receding hairline on top.
1  HIRAM Name of Phoenecian king of Tyre: The Hebrew Bible says that he allied himself with King David of the United Kingdom of Israel (2 Samuel 5:11, 1 Kings 5:1, 1 Chronicles 14:1). Robinson b: December 06, 1806 in prob. Strafford, Orange, Vermont d: February 06, 1892 in Strafford, Orange, Vermont
. +Zeruiah Zeruah A. Tyler b: January 19, 1808 in Strafford, Orange, Vermont d: September 03, 1847 in prob Strafford, Orange, Vermont Zeruiah // (צרויה, sometimes transliterated Tzruya or Zeruya) is a figure in the Hebrew Bible. She was a sister of King David. According to 1 Chronicles 2:13-16 and also the Babylonian Talmud (Shabbat 55), Zeruiah was a daughter of Jesse (sister to Abigail another of Jesse's daughters according to 2 Samuel 17:25). Zeruiah had three sons, Abishai, Joab, and Asahel, all of whom were soldiers in David's army (and also David's nephews).Love her biblical name. They were into studying the Old Testament and especially admired King David, I see. It's interesting to me that Christians had picked names from the Bible that we Jewish people do not necessarily use. We use the names of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Joseph, and some of their descendants .along with names such as David, Samuel, Joel, Joshua, etc.
The only problem I see here is that Hiram wouldn't have married Zeruiah until 2 years after Abiathar was born in 1829. They married in 1831, if records I found were correct. I guess this happened in the past as well as with today's people. She was certainly old enough. Abiathar was very religious. Would he have done this? Zeruiah died young in 1847, and Hiram remarried Abigail George. I'm not sure who Abiathar's siblings' mother would have been. He would certainly have been Zeruiah's son. His name of Abiathar, another biblical name connected to King David, certainly fits. He was the tenth high priest, and the fourth in descent from Eli. When his father was slain with the priests of Nob, he escaped, and bearing with him the ephod, he joined David, who was then in the cave of Adullam ( 1 Samuel 22:20-23 ; 23:6 ). He remained with David, and became priest of the party of which he was the leader ( 1 Samuel 30:7 ). When David ascended the throne of Judah, Abiathar was appointed high priest ( 1 Chronicles 15:11 ; 1 Kings 2:26 ) and the "king's companion" ( 1 Chronicles 27:34 )
|Tunbridge, Orange, Vermont and a covered bridge they are noted for.|
|This is Hetty Green Robinson also born in 1834 like our Julia Ann, but in Massachusetts. |
known as Henrietta Howland Robinson, closest I could get to a picture of this era.
This lady died at 81 of a stroke in 1916.
(née Robinson; November 21, 1834 – July 3, 1916), nicknamed the "Witch of Wall Street", was an American businesswoman and financier known as "the richest woman in America" during the Gilded Age. Known for both her wealth and her miserliness, she was the lone woman to amass a fortune when other major financiers were men. Give her cudos for doing something women just didn't do then. She was a first!
+Julia Ann Tuller b: December 18, 1834 in Royalton, Windsor, Vermont d: December 02, 1887 in Wenona, Marshall, Illinois Julia married Abaithar at age 17, lived in a gorgeous green state with covered bridges and during the Civil War had moved to Canada, then returned to Wenona, Illinois when it was over. Why they left is not known, only a fact discovered by the descendants. She was probably a lot happier than Henriettq Robinson ever was, even with all her money.

|One of the Robinsons in Wenona in its heyday. |
Have these terrible haircuts returned today?
|Robinson brothers in Wenona, Marshall, Illinois|
love their pointed toed shoes! Could be
Charles and Edgar out of the service.
|John F. Robinson before or after |
soldiering days of WWI. in Wenona, Ill.
I think he has a "Bing Crosby look to him."
At least the hat covers those terrible haircuts.
|John F Robinson b: 1896|
Uniforms make men look so good!
This should be John Franklin

John C, son of Abiathar R.

|Farm somewhere in USA and well-known red barn. |
Frank had a horse he loved and fought for it with his father. When an adult he
became a teamster with 6 horses to handle with his express wagon.
One place that's very important to genealogists in searching for ancestors is the cemetery. findagrave.com is a
good source for finding information, though we are dependant on the accuracy of donors. The pictures
do help, but again those making the headstones are dependant on someone's information that is given to them.
