Aquilla or Acuilla Robey
Posted by: Sandra Norris-Bryant (ID *****3389) Date: April 22, 2012 at 16:42:37

I'm trying to find the ancestors of my 2X Great Grandmother Lucinda M. F. Robey(or Roby) Gates. She was born in Charles County in 1829; however, she ended her life in Washington, D. C. in 1901. I have no idea when she left Charles Co., who her parents were, etc.

I suspect, but have no proof, that she was married to a Robey(Roby) briefly before she married my 2X Great Grandfather William F. Gates because I've looked and looked through all the censuses, even the Maryland census for 1830 and 1820, for her.

I have her family's Bible, and there were news clippings in it about Lemuel Robey's death who was the first janitor at Washington, D. C.'s newly built (1840) city hall. So, I know that she was connected to the Robey family, but can't find her anywhere in the list of families/children/etc. of the Robey, Roby or Robie families. Lemuel's funeral was officiated at the German Episcopal Church in Georgetown, Washington, D. C. Lucinda had a son named James Lemuel Gates, who was a policeman in Washington, D.C. before losing his faculties, so she must have named him after Lemuel Robey.

Does anyone in Charles Co. have any idea who Lucinda M. F. Robey/Roby might be??? There are several of us looking for her, and we could use all the help we could get!!!
