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.

RE: Robinson graves, 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!

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) =)

RE: Collins infant grave, Wake County

Sorry we didn't have more solid results for you. I am also a genealogist enthusiast and love that I can help or try to help others find family information. I have recently acquired cousins in Ireland due to my persistent research of long separated and forgotten family. Best of luck in your research! Barbara

One more time. I think I missed your message last month. I believe this a new feature on Find A Grave that the person also shows up in the sibling list. It throws me off every time I see it. It is correct.

Thanks for your information. I will look at my research to determine the correct information, until I have completed my research I prefer not to delete the memorial.

Thanks for you patience and your help.

I think my relation to the Berrys could be a bit remote. My family history interests are in my main line and their sibling, which often leads into the children of the siblings, which would be expressed as first cousins any number of times removed. Although, it's easy enough to go traipsing off somewhere else to follow a story. We're only in this for the stories, you know.

Anyway, just for fun, at least on my part, here is the chain of relations that led me to remark upon the two John Robertsons. It's better clarity for your perspective to go in reverse.

Frances Grant Berry and Sally Berry would be my first cousins, six times removed. I was looking into the children to have a better perspective of my fifth great grand Aunt Mildred Allin, the daughter of Frances Grant b1716, and a sister to Ann Elenor Allen b1745.

Ann Elenor Allen, my 5th gr grandmother bore Martha Patty Howard b1771 who bore Rebecca Sarah Thorpe b1798, my 3rd gr grandmother. It has been exciting to follow the breakthrough I had with the ancestry of my 3rd gr grandmother, who married Benjamin Herndon Kelley. My mother's maiden name was Kelley. She has been a family history buff all of her life, but our line did not know of the ancestry of Rebecca Sarah Thorpe.

Computers are wonderful in that they allow so many connections! Anyway I have followed the Thorps, the Howards, the Allens, with great interest these past few weeks. I make reports to my mother, Betty Burney, age 87.

It's so helpful when we share what we know with others. It's great that you do that. My mother told me to share her old pictures and stories. It's been a great experience. Thank you for being a person who shares what you know. Your attention and care to cite your proofs is very good. Anyone who needs to, can look up the documentaton. Wonderful!

Thank you for leaving the note on Find A Grave Memorial# 14276629 giving the clarification on the fact of the Berry sisters both marrying a John Robinson, and thank you for the other very helpful notes on the estate, Bible dates, and marriages.
