      In Reply to: VALENTINE ROBBINS IN WASHINGTON CO, IN. by Marie Bayles of 3206
      The parents of Valentine Robbins (1813-1849) were reportedly Richard Robbins (c1790-betw. 1850-58) and Rebecca ("Betsy") Chastain (c1794-c1871). Richard, in turn, was the son of Richard and Catherine Robbins, and Richard (Sr.) is said to be the son of Nathaniel and Ann Robbins. Little is documented so far. Nathaniel was born c1740, prob. in Monmouthshire, Wales and died c1800, prob. in Shelby Co., Kentucky. He came as a child with his family to the Rowan/Guilford/Randolph Co., North Carolina area; moved to the Franklin & Montgomery Co., Virginia area, and then on to Shelby Co., Kentucky. Other Robbins lived in Henry Co., Kentucky; many went on to Decatur, Jennings, Scott, and Washington counties, Indiana. Nathaniel, by the way, was a brother of Jacob Robbins, who married Mary (said to be Wells, but, again, unproven).

      Current thought is that Monmouth County, New Jersey may have been mistakingly recorded as Monmouthshire, Wales in many, many references.

      In Reply to: Sylvester Robbins/ Scott Co., IN/ 1859 by Donna Forney Clark of 4099
      My information on Sylvester (Robbins), albeit of uncertain documentation, is that he was the son of William Martin Robbins and Nancy Chasteen. William Martin (1821-aft. 1880) was the son of Richard Robbins Jr. (c1790-betw. 1850/1858) and Rebecca Chastain. Richard Jr. was the son of Richard Robbins Sr. (c. 1760 in Guilford (now Randolph) Co., NC d. after 1814 in Kentucky) and Catherine or Mary [--?--]. Rebecca Chastain was the daughter of Valentine Chastain (c1768-1843) and Mary Robbins (c1774-1844) - this Mary was the daughter of Jacob and Mary [--?--] Robbins. Richard Sr. may have been (documentation is lacking here), the son of Nathaniel and Ann Robbins.
      Rebecca Chastain, b. abt 1795, was the daughter of Valentine Chastain and Mary Robbins.
