Amelia Margaret Bryan Robinson
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1824
New York County (Manhattan)
New York, USA
Death: Jan. 10, 1890
Kings County (Brooklyn)
New York, USA

She was the younger daughter of Elijah Bryan and Margaret Robertson McQueen. She was probably born in lower Manhattan about 1824. Amelia married Robert F. W. Robinson, Sr. who was probably born in England. Their marriage took place at Trinity Church in lower Manhattan in 1846 when her older sister was in the final stages of her pregnancy with Helena Willett Freeland.

Amelia and Robert had a son and daughter. The son was Robert William Robinson, Jr., born in August of 1847, and Margaret (Maggie) born about 1850. Robert, Sr. was a businessman who traveled to England on business and to visit his family. My ancestor Eliza C. (Bryan) Freeland Simonson did not seem to care for him thinking that he treated her sister Amelia poorly, but Eliza was a person of strong likes and dislikes so it is hard to know where the truth lies. Amelia's husband seems to drop off the screen and she is buried with her parents and son who was a mariner and who died young of a sore on his stomach.

Margaret (Maggie) may have become a music teacher. I have no further record of her and don't know if she married but I suspect that she did.

You seem like you were a nice person. My ancestor, your sister, Eliza, liked you but she thought you let your husband dominate you.
