Check out these sites for Robinson Old Homestead. It is in Urbanna, VA. I hope to go there next summer. There is also a cemetery on the 66 acre grounds. The lady that runs it (bed and breakfast) is a Robinson and a genealogist.
Francis Robinson's daughter, Frances, married my ggg grandfather Thomas T. Thompson b. 10/27/1787. Also my gg grandfather was Joseph Thompson Sr. b. abt 1799, on the other side. I'm trying to find out if they were brothers. These Thompsons came to KY from Orange Co. VA. There was Jarvey, Joseph Sr., William, Tommy T., Martin ?? That's where I run into a brick wall. How were these Thompson's related? My brother was named Jarvey so I know he fits in there somewhere. Any info on Thompsons? I have them on both sides.
There were a lot of Faulkners who came to Pendleton and Harrison Co. KY. Annie Mariah Faulkner married my great uncle, John Newton Ramey (brother to my g grandmother Joann Ramey)
Happy hunting. Let me know if you find Henry's line or recognize any of these names.
