RE: Memories of Karen
Yes, Karen was a sweetheart and I found we were often in Bellevue the same day but never met. Huge loss for Findagrave, she was an excellent researcher!
R.I.P. Karen!

Robinson graves on Bethany Pike, Jessamine County, Kentucky
My husband and I drove the length of Bethany Pike this week, looking for the family burial ground where Benjamin Robinson and his wife Mildred are buried. We found nothing. There are several new subdivisions on that road. It is illegal but conceivable that that burial ground has been destroyed.

Richard Gentry 19384

Found the connection to Richard (father-in-law of 1st cousin 4x removed) to my grandmother Eulah Belle (Still) Blew. Are you a descendant of the Gentry's? If so that is where the connection is to us being relatives (I believe). I see on some of them you have left flowers and a message.

Benjamin Robinson
Hello Bestpix,

I found something that assures me that there wasn't a Benjamin Robinson that was a brother to Dorothy Robinson (unc musta not seen this).

Proof that William and Sarah had only 4 children

William Robinson of Madison, Ky., was born in Virginia, lived in Spotsylvania Co, for many years, came to Kentucky about 1785, and settled on a farm on Silver Creek in Madison Co. He married in Spotsylvania Co., about 1764, Sarah Smith, a daughter of Peyton Smith of said county. Said Spotsylvania records also show that William Robinson joined Payton Smith in a dee of gift, dated June 19, 1777, to seven negroes to Ann and Dorothy Peyton Robinson, daughter of said William and Sarah his wife. (Page30, Virginia Co, Records, Vol I)

Peyton Smith died, and his son, Robert Smith, was made admisistrator, Aug 15, 1782. William Robinson's wil dated July 22, 1795, was proved in Madison Co., Ky., July 5, 1802.


1. Ann, born 1765; married Nicholas Hawkins about 1785, died 1853.
2. Dorothy Peyton, married John Pitman.
3. Peyton Robinson
4. William Robinson

William Robinson and Sarah his wife, made a deed in 1788 to their son-in-law, Nicholas Hawkins, Jr, to 388 acres of land on Silver Creek, in Madison, Co., Ky. In his will, in which he made his mark in 1795, his name was spelled Robertson, without doubt an error of a lawyer, while in Virginia and in other Kentucky records, where he signed his own name, he wrote Robinson.

Some people have Samuel, Benjamin and Elizabeth as their children but I believe this is proof positive that you are right, Benjamin was not a brother to Dorothy! I am glad I found this.

Talk 2u soon,

RE: Robinson graves, Jessamine County, Kentucky
I will try to find the cemetery again. Unless it has been marked, it may be hard because we have had a lot of rain and the hay grass is several feet high.

RE: Benjamin Robinson Pvt
Hello Bestpix,

After going thru his notes and actually deleting and starting again, I am not finding a Benjamin Robinson in the family so far. I cannot even duplicate what he had before, so I am thinking that there is not a Benjamin Robinson that is a brother to my Dorothy Robinson. I am actually seeing Dorothy's name appearing as Roberts (maybe someone she married earlier) in the family.

Now, that is not to say Benjamin wont appear somewhere but I am not finding him as a brother to Dorothy. Looks like she only had 3 other siblings instead of the 8 that unc had showing. An Anna Robinson, Peyton Smith Robinson and a William R Robinson Jr (parents to them are William R Robinson Sr and Sarah Smith). William's parents are George Robinson and Elizabeth Yates from England. It says they died in Virginia but I have yet to find any concrete evidence to the fact and am only finding William Sr as their only child so far.

But if you are a relative of a Robinson we have to be related somewhere down the line. Granted this was early 1700's so there couldn't have been that many Robinson's here in the US. I still, however, am so glad I got to know more about your side and that you have me questioning the Robinson's on my side. You are correct this takes time and a lot of reading and researching.

The links you provided me, I am going to have to wait till I get to the stationary store to get some paper to print it out and see what it reads. Its a lot of info and you are right it is scrambled so hopefully printing it out will help me read it better.

Talk to you soon,

RE: Robinson graves, Jessamine County, Kentucky
After Mr. Teater had recorded the cemetery, I saw the stones myself. Benjamin & wife Mildred Burbidge did have grave markers in that family cemetery with their son John Robinson & his wife Frances "Fanny" G. Berry and grandson James M. Robinson. I will try to find the cemetery again and see if the stones still exist. If I can find it, I will take pictures. In years past here many farmers did not care for the cemeteries on their land and allowed cattle to roam there, breaking off the stones. Some actually used the stones in buildings. It is a shame!

RE: Robinson graves, Jessamine County, Kentucky
I also have the book Jessamine County Kentucky Cemetery Records, Volume Two, compiled by Howard C. Teater, copyright 1990. He spent his life in Jessamine County compiling the graves. On page 78 he lists the cemetery where Benjamin Robinson and his wife Mildred are buried as "Benny Underwood Farm, Bethany Pike" in Jessamine County.

RE: Robinson graves, Jessamine County, Kentucky
The Robinson Family Cemetery I put in is listed at I did not realize someone had put in some of the names of that cemetery when I entered the names I had, but my names were recorded in 1982 and those names were there when I recorded that cemetery then.

I did not submit the names in the cemetery on FindAGrave at Those graves were entererd by someone called "Find Me If You Can" on 13 May 2006.

RE: Robinson graves, Jessamine County, Kentucky
You are right about the duplicate dates. I looking at my original records Mary A. Bourne was born 31 Dec 1816 and died 19 Aug 1900. I will correct those dates.
On my original record Benjamin Robinson and his wife Mildred were listed in the family cemetery on Bethany Pike, Jessamine County, Kentucky.

What is the address for the entry with Robinson graves on Bethany Pike in Jessamine County, Kentucky? I cannot seem to find any except the one I added so need the address.

Benjamin Robinson Pvt
Hello again B,

Just wanted you to know that I inherited this database from one of my uncles that had died and no one wanted to work on it or deal with it. Most of my relatives could care less where they came from..."I only live in the now or I only want to know about the future not the past". Sadly, that is the way they feel. I, however, love knowing where I came from and meeting potential relatives!

I am now working on the Robinson's side of the family tree which I see is not really developed. It looks like he had problems within this area of the database.

Talk to you soon!
Rob Blew

Benjamin Robinson Pvt
Hello B,

After going thru this part of the family tree again, I find that you might be right. He could not be the son of William and Susan like I had suggested as they were not married until 1764. Benjamin was born in 1752. It looks like my William was married 2x but that seems to be a bit odd since the other wife he is supposedly married to is 16+ years older than him. I know it's possible but I find it odd. I thought I had this part of my tree done but now you have made me question it! Let's forget the hook up I sent to you until I figure this out for sure as I would not want to be the one to spread wrong info =(. Which means we may not be cousins =(. I did find the National Cemetery Administrations, U.S. Veterans Gravesites ca. 1775-2006 that lists him buried in Robinson Family Cemetery in Nicholasville, Jessamine, Kentucky, USA, the place where I see you contacted Cindy Nicholls. I am very sorry about this and hope to figure this out soon!

RE: Robinsons
My Robinson connection are from New York- the 'other side' of my family - Dad's side from Kentucky and Missouri among other places, Mom's side from Connecticut and New York and pretty much they never left (much easier to trace that side)

RE: Robinson graves
Sorry but I responded about the graveyard where James, James P., and Emily Robinson are buried on Union Mill Road in Nicholasville, KY.
The Robinson Cemetery you wrote me about is on Bethany Pike in Jessamine County. I also read those stones in 1982 and recorded them in my genealogy. Benjamin Robinson and his wife Mildred both had stones there. I have not been there for many years but could try to find it again.

RE: Robinson graves
I live on Union Mill a short distance from the graveyard on the old Muir Farm that has your ancestors. The old house that used to be on that property before it burned down was used as the Fayette County Court House many years ago. About 1982 I noticed that the graveyard on the property was being overrun by cows that were in the pasture. The fence was not secure and many of the stones were being broken off and knocked over. It was in the days before phone cameras to take pictures, but I got permission and went into the cemetery are recorded all the stones that were readable. I guess many have been broken or removed since then. It is a shame!

RE: Grave of Benjamin Robinson (husb. of Mildred Burbridge)
Hello BestPix,

Pvt Benjamin Robinson (married to Mildred Burbridge) is a 4th great uncle to my grandmother Eulah Belle (Still) Blew. Benjamin's sister Dorothy was my 5th great grandmother. So yeah =) I guess we are cousins! =)

Anyway, this is the link to the Robinson Family cemetery:

(There isn't a picture of the cemetery and I have yet to talk to the person who made the memorial.) I cannot find a link outside Find A Grave to the cemetery (Bing'n it) so I don't even know if it exists (only in Find A Grave).

This is the link to other Benjamin:

This is the link to his wife Mildred: (no bir/dea dates for her)

There is not an actual photo of his U.S. Veterans Gravesites, cir 1775-2006 (unless you order one) but it says this: (from Ancestry)

Name: Benjamin Robinson
Birth Date: 1752
Death Date: 1835
Cemetery: Robinson Cemetery
Cemetery Address: Nicholasville, KY 40356

This is not something that is written down but actually some of the military records for him. I see (U.S. Veterans Gravesites) alot on military members and I pretty usually accept the info from it. (also a good way to search for individuals with the info it provides) I may have one on another individual if you need to see proof but I won't order one unless its a very close member of my family.

I know nothing is concrete here and I'm not surprised to see same person buried in two dif cemeteries, I just like to try to get as close to the right one as possible. Let me know what you think about the links and possibly being the same person.

Bye for now Cuz!
Rob Blew (YankeeGraver) =)
