Interested in Robinson s that migrated to Australia in the early 1900
In my experience it's always good to think of different ways to spell the surname.In those days most people couldn't spell so they sounded the name out. Good Luck!
Looking for anyone interested in Samuel Robinson from Ohio and his wife Elizabeth Marsh from New York. Their kids were born between 1828 and 1842 in Lawrence County, OH and Athens County, OH. If this rings a bell with any of you please let me know. I've seen the name also spelled as Robison, Robeson, Roberson and Robertson ... from legal documents in the 1860's I'm thinking Robison is probably the correct spelling, but I figured it was worth a try posting here in case I'm wrong!
I wish you the Best of Luck in your research Mary!
pamela, thank you for your sugesstions. I have looked at the younger Alexander 's Find a grave site. It had some information from his obituary, nothing much about his dad. I Know there was at least one possibly, two older brothers that came to the US before his mom ,his sister, and he did. I did join an Ulster Irish genealogical group , but much of the information available there is a charge for and I'm not yet ready to pay. Did find at least an idea of where they were living, but nothing about the father's death. thanks again for your suggestions. I may be going up to Edgar County , close to Clay . I''ll have to check their library and records if I do go. you have been helpful, thanks Maryg
I just came across a website you might be interested in. It's called YourIrishheritage.com They also are on Facebook.
Sometimes you find information in obituaries. Also,by writing a Letter to the Editor you might find out what cousins who still live in the area that might know about Alexander's parents in Ireland. There are also several Irish online sites. I must admit that I feel it's harder to "cross the pond" as they say. Also, the Wayne County library might have a biography about Alexander the son's family history that will talk about his Irish grandparents.
Anybody else have any other suggestions? Good Luck!
Welcome to everyone who has recently joined. I hope you can find your Robinson's! Good Luck!

Have you contacted the Wayne Co.,IL. Public Library about your Robinson's? Another place to check is a history or genealogy society. I also have had luck writing a Letter to the Editor of the local newspaper. Check the search bar for their e-mail addresses. Good Luck! Also check the Robinson's on Rootsweb.com.com
