      SOME EARLY ROBBINS GENERATIONS IN THE UNITED STATES:
      July 5, 2005: "The information in this posting has been excerpted from the ROBBINS JOURNAL, Vol. I, No. 1, July 1989, pp. 1 - 5. The Journal was edited by Kevin K. Mittge, a Robbins family historian, archivist, librarian, and published genealogist. The Journal is now defunct."

      Donna Forney Clark: At this point, I have included only part of the previous posting of this excerpted article.

      Within this article
      "Introduction To The Robbins Family History, by Kevin K. Mittge.

      Kevin K. Mittge writes:

      “I am grateful for information provided by Marvin Robbins, Ocala, FL; Mary Kate Horner, Lebanon, IN; and Margaret Davis, Yakima, WA; and many others who have worked and are still working on this topic.”

      Kevin writes that the following information has been suggested.

      (There are several paragraphs between Kevin’s acknowledgments and the following information.)

      Jacob Robbins (I) was born about 1738 and it is suggested he died about 1830 in Jennings Co., Indiana. He married to Mary, who was possibly of the Wells family. Jacob and Mary are believed to be the parents of William, Absalom, Jacob (II), James, Mary, Martha (called Massey), and Margaret.

      Absalom Robbins, the second son of Jacob and Mary, was married to Mary Ogle shortly after arriving in Virginia.

      Jerry Sanner, James Jarvis Robbins' researcher:
      James Jarvis Robbins is the son of David Ashley Robbins. Currently (12-4-2010), there is research being done considering a possible link of David Ashley Robbins, son of Mary C. Robbins Furguson (or Ferguson), with Jacob II "Big Toe Jake" Robbins & Nancy Hanks (1785-1814). "David Ashley Robbins was adopted by Sylvester Furguson who married David's mother Mary C. Robbins (who died before 1836), in Oldham Co., KY. (Sylvester then married Sarah Clark and had seven more children in IN.) Mary may be the daughter of Jake and Nancy (Hanks) Robbins."
      "David Ashley Robbins was born in Oldham Co., KY, January 6, 1815. He was married in Jennings Co., IN, February 8, 1838 to Mary Ann Roberts. Later moved to Putnam Co., MO, where he died March 10 1875."
