The Virginia Genealogist [Box 5860, Falmouth VA 22403] has just published the first part of an article entitled, “Benjamin Robinson of Caroline County VA, But Not The Clerk!” that identifies the lineage of Nancy Ann (Robinson) Blanton, wife of John Blanton of Caroline County VA and Woodford County KY.

Using early Caroline County land tax records, this first part [Vol. 48, No. 1, 2004] sorts out two different Benjamin Robinson families in this burnt county. The article is well documented and can be used to prove lineage for most lineage societies.

The second part, to be published in Vol. 48, No.2, follows the children and grandchildren to Kentucky and Missouri. Anyone having additional facts about this family is asked to please contact me at the address below. We are most interested in learning the whereabouts of a son Benjamin Robinson who married a Fanny and was in Kentucky, any connections between the many George Robinsons and this family, and the children of Mary Ann Elizabeth Robinson who first married Silas Conduit and second James Chapman in Caroline County.
