Beal, Robinson and Scarbrough

The following is what I think know about my ancestor Martha “Patsey” Robinson:

John and Eliza Beal had six children (because of the wording of the will, the first child mentioned, Hollenbury Robertson – Robinson, may have been the product of an earlier marriage): Hollenbury, Richard Beale, John Beale, William Beal, Salley Nixon and Betsy Turner Haker.

Hollenbury married John Robinson. Their children were William, John, Ann, Mary, Lucretia, Frances, Martha and Elizabeth. Martha “Patsey” Robinson married Silas S Scarbrough in Lincoln County on April 5, 1821.

The part that I don’s have a source on is that Martha was indeed the child of Hollenbury Beal and John Robinson! It seems likely since Martha and Silas named one of their daughters “Holly” perhaps after her grandmother.

I would really appreciate any input on this. I would especially like to hear from Rena Bernstein and Robyn Collins, descendants of Ann Robinson, Hollenbury’s sister. I have been unable to contact them and they seem to know a lot about the Robinsons.
