The Robinson Family - (Notes from Wilber F. Robinson) "John L Robinson came from Connecticut, possibly from Pennsylvania to Virginia. He was born about the year 1806 and died in 1871. He married Lydia Bishop, b. 1806 and died in 1866.. (John II, son of Thomas, son of John L. Robinson has the old Bible, but I have not been able to get the record so cannot give dates as to where they were married or by whom. Likewise who their parents were.)"

William Robinson/Robison PA & VA Line S7391, soldier was born 8-2-1748 in Bucke Co PA and moved to London Co. VA then to Fayette Co PA then to Mason Co. Kentucky then to Clinton Co. OH. In Sept. ( I believe there must be a typographical error as to the birthdate of William Robinson in this Rev.War soldier Pension book because he would be to old to have had his children in the 1890's).
1833 John Robinson made affidavit 9-1833 in Clinton County, Ohio, said father moved in 1812 to OH and in 1821 the son was a married man. From Volume 3 of Rev. War Pension Files.
