Just today I came across some land records for the early days of Texas, on the internet at: http://209.45.151.186/lsj/texians/

It lists a number of Robinsons, including the following getting land grants initially issued conditionally in Montgomery Co. TX after arriving in Texas post 1 Oct 1837:
Henry Robinson 640 acres, with an unconditional certificate issued in Leon Co. 10 Sept 1849;
Elijah Robinson 320 acres, with an unconditional certificate issued in Leon Co. 10 Sept 1847; and
John H. Robinson 320 acres, with an unconditional certificate issued in Montgomery Co. 8 Oct 1945.

Listed as arriving in Texas in 1840 were:
Daniel Robinson 640 acres, unconditional certificate issued 2 Sept 1844; and
Henry F. Robinson 320 acres, unconditional certificate issued 31 Mar 1846.

There was no such listing for Zoroaster Robinson. There were other Robinsons getting land in other counties in Texas at those times.

How does one tell which ones are related to each other and how? And which, if any, are related to Zoroaster?
