How Abiathar Smith Robinson Can Be Connected to the Morgan Horse of Vermont

Nadene Goldfoot                                       
Morgan Horse-symbol of Vermont
Designed by Justin Morgan,
father of  Almira Morgan. 
Abiathar Smith Robinson's parents may have been Hiram Robinson who married Almira Morgan, daughter of the horse breeder who created the Morgan Horse.

Abiathar's son, Frank, wanted to save his horse from the bull who was loose in the same field as his treasured horse, most likely a Morgan being that's what was being raised by Abiathar's mother-if his parents were as I suspect, Hiram Robinson and Almira Morgan.  Another indication is that Sally Durkee was married to Almira's brother, Justin Jr. Abiathar's wife, Julia Ann Tuller's mother was Asenith Durkee. 
Descendants of Asenith Asinith Durkee

.. +Almira Morgan b: Abt. 1804 in Rhode Island d: April 1888 in Sandy Creek, Oswego, NY


The families were connected.  

Hiram Robinson is a special  name.  It's the name of another man I suspected was Abiathar's father; a Hiram Robinson married to Sally Smith.  


Descendants of HIRAM ROBINSON, Jr.


HIRAM ROBINSON, Jr. b: March 18, 1809 in Jamaica, Windham,  Vermont d: 1842 in Jamaica, Windham, Vermont

.. +Sally "Sarah" Smith b: January 01, 1812 in Jamaica, Windham County, Vermont d: August 30, 1905 in Wenona, Marshall, Illinois

There was another one.

Descendants of HIRAM ROBINSON

Sally Durkee and Asenath Durkee are 3rd cousins once removed.
Sally Durkee and Julia Ann Tuller, Asenath's daughter, are 3rd cousins twice removed.
Sally Durkee and Abiathar Smith Robinson are 5th cousins.
Julia Ann Tuller and Abiathar Smith Robinson are are actually 3rd cousins once removed among other titles like husband and wife.

How the line gets to Meppershall, England
Hiram Robinson  b: 1799 and Almira Morgan
Amos                       1767
Amos                       1734
Amos                       1711
Jacob                       1680
John                         1641
John                         1611 Mepperhall, England 

"Popular children's authors, including Marguerite Henry and Ellen Feld, have portrayed the breed in their books; Henry's Justin Morgan Had a Horse was later made into a Disney movie."

I'm pursuing people who have tested their DNA now with the surname of Morgan.  Hope I get a positive response and find a descendant of Justin Morgan.  
The problem is that if it's true as it looks with my brother's match, then I cannot fit other matches to these newer Robinsons.  Wish I knew for sure who Abiathar's parents really are!
