Dawn,
My ggggrandfather was Adam Robinson/Robertson who lived in New Athens. The 1850 census for Harrison Co. lists he and his family in the following way:
Adam Robertson age 72 occupation: Tailor Birthplace: PA
Elisabeth Robertson age 65
Permelia A. Robertson age 29 born: OH
Angeline Robertson age 18 born: OH
Geo. W. Robertson age 1

I know that this Adam is my ancestor because his daughter Permelia Anne is my gggrandmother and I have verification of that. Permelia used the name Robinson when she married Robert Johnston.

Do you think this might be the Adam you are looking for? Do you think this Elisabeth might have had the maiden name of Glass? Please let me know.
