Help for Christmas: Anyone know anything about the Robinson family?

I'm trying to put together a family tree for my father for christmas, and I really need all your help. I've been working on my family lines for a while now, but I've got my nose to that ever familiar brick wall. I'm all ears on anything anyone has for leads, suggestions, ideas...etc.

This is what I have so far:

George Robinson (b. 1-20-1836 in England) came through Canada to settle in Austin Twp., Sanilac, Michigan. He did live a while in Ontario- probably marrying his first wife Sarah (Unknown) there. They came to the U.S. around 1860 with their daughter Ann Robinson (B. ~1864 in Canada). In this first marriage, there were also three sons. John Robinson (B. 1867 - married a Lottie Naomi Lewis that was born in Canada); William Robinson (B. 1868); Samuel Robinson (B. 1870 - married an Elizabeth Meridith).

George's second marriage was also to a woman named sarah (unknown) . Children from this marriage include: George William Robinson (B. 1883- married a Laura Mae Unknown); and a Jeanette Robinson (b. 1887 - married a Joseph Lapeer).

One of my relatives mentioned that the Robinson family reunion used to move back and forth between Michigan & Sarnia, Ontario. It has also mentioned that there is a connection with Robinsons in Petrolia, Ontario.

If you know anything about any of these people or any potential leads- PLEASE email me a.s.a.p. : niwankovitsch@hotmail.com
