You are the key!
Gayl: Thanks for your message. The Robarts buried in Nashville were my first find-a-grave expedition. My friend and I traveled to S. IL to research her family, so I thought I would get involved with find-a-grave. I found some Robarts in Nashville. I didn't who they were. I found the cemetery and lo and behold, there they were right next to the main drive. I took their photos without knowing how I may have been related. I was especially fond of "Olive" Robart because I love olives. And, I met James Robart through this hobby from California who is an olive farmer. I have tried and tried to connect Dora and the gang to my tree, but haven't been able to . . . until now! I have a Jesse Robart (1807 - 1890) in my tree, but nothing further (no spouse, etc.). You provided the link. The dates I have match with Find A Grave memorial for Jesse. It seems one of Jesse's brothers is James English Robart (1804 - 1848). This is my line. James English Robart married Anna Croy (alt Croix), begat John Croy Robart married Susannah Thrall, begat Carl John Robart, married Gertrude TenHaven, begat my paternal grandfather, Marvin Carl Robart married Eleanor Roe, and begat my father, Robert Kay Robart married Joan Stettnisch, begat me Kenneth Jon Robart. How exciting! I owe it all to Olive and to you. I can now connect Jesse's line (and there's a few Robarts buried over by Hastings somewhere too . . . that's your line, I'm thinking. So Jesse is the sibling of my third great-grandfather. This is really exciting!
