I'm a direct descendant of Allen & Margaret(Symm) Robinette.....I'm a 11th generation Robnett...The "e" on the end of the name, along with the "i", were dropped from Robinette as the generations went along, by my family, for what reasons..I don't know ...
My great-great grandfather (John James Robnett) came to Texas from Missouri in 1830 and received a land grant for his service in the Texas revolution in 1842...The Land was located in Red River County, Texas...Shortly after arriving in Texas John James married Avarilla Hamilton and they had 6 children...I found recorded documentation listing them as charter members of the "Old Dial Presbyterian Church" in Dial,Texas...But I cannot find a Dial, Texas...My great-grandfather (John "Jack" Loren Robnett) was the 3rd child born of this union...he was born in Red River County or Delta County Texas, but grew up in Hunt County, Texas where the family were cotton farmers...."Jack" Loren and My Great-grandmother Mary Elizabeth (Miller)Robnett had 9 children...My Grandfather (Samuel Clay Robnett)was the 3rd child born....
My grandfather and my grandmother Grace Izora (Sears)Robnett had 11 children...My grandfather was a Methodist minister and farmer....My dad (Odus Ray Robnett)was the 4th child born of this union....In 1923 my grandparents moved their family to far west Texas (Lamb County) and I grew up knowing very little about the Robnett families in the afore mentioned north eastern Texas counties...
I have genealogical code numbers for my ancestors but I am not sure where these numbers came from and I'll list them alonside the names at the end of this message and would like someone to tell me if they are registered here...
It would be wonderful to hear from any of you reading this and even greater if you can provide any
information about my NE Texas ancestoral family....
