Source: Beers 1883 Union County [Ohio] History - SAMUEL ROBINSON, farmer, P. O. Plain City. This distinguished pioneer, whose portrait appears in this volume, is a son of James and Jane (Morrison) Robinson, of York County, Penn. He (James), with a brother Samuel, left their home in Pennsylvania and journeyed to Tennessee, to meet Lucas Sullivant, the original proprietor of a large tract of land, now embraced in the limits of Darby Township. Securing the company of Mr. Sullivant, the trio started on the journey to Union County, traveling six weeks through an unbroken wilderness, and never meeting the face of a white person. Reaching their destination in the spring of 1800, the brothers purchased 600 acres of land. Clearing a spot and planting the first crop, James returned to his native place where he was married in 1801, and returned in 1805 with his bride, to his cabin home in the wilderness. Here they lived, rejoiced and sorrowed to the end of life's journey. They were the parents of eight children, four of whom are living to perpetuate their honored name. William, the eldest, is one of the oldest born and living pioneers of the county; James, a resident of Jerome Township; Samuel and Annie. The subject of this sketch was born on the homestead farm in Darby Township, November 18, 1814. He was married January 19, 1841, to Miss Nancy, a daughter of James A. and Phebe Curry, and a sister of John Curry. She was a native of Jerome Township, Union County, where her birth occurred January 19, 1822, and died April 10, 1865, the mother of eight children, six of whom are living-James I. ; Viana, wife of John McCullough ; Eldridge, Otway C., Phebe and Addison. His second marriage to Miss Jennie Kincaid a Virginian, occurred December 29, 1876. This union has been blest with three children, all of whom are growing into life amid the cultivated and productive scenes cleared by the hand of their forefathers. Their names are Josephine, Inez, and one not yet christened. Mr. R. settled on a farm of 317 acres, which his father subsequently purchased, where he has since made it his home. He is a man of quiet, unostentatious habits, fond of home, a good neighbor, an honored and esteemed citizen.
