Joseph Robison, the son of James Robison and Margaret Adams, married Cornelia Guinal January 1, 1784 in the Dutch Reformed Church in Fort Plain, Montgomery County, New York. The Robisons were Methodists and settled in Charleston(now Glen)Scoharie County where they farmed and their first nine children were born. He lost his farm by endorsing notes for other people. The family moved to Tunkhannock, Wyoming County, Pennsylvania, some 85 miles from their previous home. Three more children were born here, including twins Delilah and Peter. In 1816 he removed to Tunkhannock, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, where he located and cleared a farm. In 1827 he sold this farm, which was one of the best in the country and removed to Clay, New York.

In 1829, Cornelia passed away leaving 12 year old twins and 10 year old Margaret still at home. Joseph and the children followed his son Joseph Jr and Lucretia his wife to Clay, Onondaga County, New York where Joseph, Jr had purchased a farm. Six years later Joseph again moved with his son Joseph Jr and family to neighboring Oswego County. About this time they began hearing rumors of Joseph Smith and his restored christianity, (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints). They were staunch Methodists and very active in that faith, but Joseph Jr. was impressed with their teachings, in spite of his desire not to be. Joseph Jr and his wife were baptized in the Oswego River in 1841. Joseph Sr. died in 1839.
