FYI.

  • on the 1830 and 1840 Census doesn’t list Mary Blackstone because of her not being head of house so it is a possibility that the 1830 and 1840 census isn’t for her. We assign that she was already married to John Hiram Blackstone and he didn’t have a previous marriage before her.

Ok on DNA Cousins I match many Robertson’s I don’t see any other connections directly to Robinson only cousin married into the family named Robinson’s and there children would be direct, I’m interested in knowing if James Robertson (1759 - 1838) had a daughter named Mary Robinson. Thanks for helping

also just for notes a grandsons nick name or in some records his middle name was Morris and James Robertson married a Morris.
