Subject: Robson info

An update on information I have found out about John Robson, possible
father of Henry Robson, born 1805 in England, living in Bovina,
Delaware Co, NY until 1835. Henry named his 1st two children John and
Christa, the 2nd two after his wife's parents.
A new find, a John Robson and a Christiana Robson were on a list of all
former members of the old Presbyterian Church of Bovina Center, and
were listed as not having died but left the church for other reasons.
Much of the other records of this church were not legible. The John
Robson on the 1820 census of Bovina would have been born before 1775
and he had another son.
For unknown reasons Henry's daughters, Christa and Rachel, did not move
to Michigan in 1835 with the family. Rachel then lived with her Aunt
Rachel Brown Mabel but there is no record of what happened to Christa.
I'm hoping someone out there has some information on the Robson's that
may help me prove if John and Christiana were Henry's parents and maybe
what happened to Christa.
Happy New Year to you all and may you have many successful 'finds' in
the coming year.
