Jean, here's some more:
[Jane Baldwin Bork, "Wayne County Kentucky Marriages and Vital
1801-1860" (privately published, 1972)]:
vol. 1, p.41: James Burk married Anne Robins; surety William Mullins,
Bond 1 Oct 1804, marriage 8 Oct 1804 by Rev. Elliot Jones.
vol. 1, p.225: 1804 tax delinquents
John Robins Tennessee
John Reed Tennessee
vol. 2, p.105: William Robins married Mary "Polly" Reed; surety Elijah
Rogers, Bond 5 October 1802, marriage 15 Nov 1802 by Elliot Jones JP,
consent by father John Reed on 5 Oct 1802.
vol. 2, p.119: William Shasteen married Elizabeth Reed; surety Richard
Robins, Bond 23 July 1803, marriage 16 Jan 1804, consent by bride's
parents John and Elizabeth Reed 19 Aug 1803.
Wayne Co., KY, was then across the state line from territory that would
become Overton Co., TN. Before Overton County was carved from Jackson
County in 1806, bearers of the Robbins name were already living in the area.
In 1799, a petition to the State Legislature from the residents of eastern
Sumner County, Tennessee, requesting creation of a new county was signed by
Aron ROBBINS, John ROBBINS, Nath. ROBBINS, and Wm. ROBBINS. The 1802 tax
list for newly formed Jackson County, Tennessee, shows poll tax assessments
for Aaron ROBBINS and John ROBBINS. [The petition is transcribed in
Ansearchin' News, vol. 39 (1992), pp. 25-26. The tax list is transcribed in
Ansearchin' News, vol. 19 (1972), pp. 63-65.
In 1811, Isaac ROBBINS purchased 140 acres in Overton Co.[Tennessee Land
Claiborne Co., Tennessee, deeds, book A, pp. 387-388:
19 August 1799, John SINKLER of Knox Co., TN, to William NATION of Knox Co.,
TN, 640 acre tract that was then in Knox Co. Witnesses were Isaac ROBINS and
Elijah ISAACS. [ William NATION was a grandson of John and Bethia (ROBINS)
NATION who lived on Polecat Creek in what became Randolph Co., NC]
There was an unrelated Robbins family in Wilkes Co. that according to DNA
share ancestors with the Edgecomb Co. Robbins family. But I am confident the
these Robins brides were from Randolph Co. :
George SMITH married Elisabeth ROBINS 3 Dec 1779, bondsman Nathaniel ROBINS,
Wilkes Co., NC
Elijah ISAACS Jr. married Anne ROBINS 18 Jan 1780, bondsman Nathaniel
ROBINS, Wilkes Co., NC
[Source: Ancestry.com. Marriages of Wilkes County, North Carolina 1778-1868
On the 1820 census of Overton County, Geroge SMITH is two lines from Isaac
Elijah Isaacs appears on an 1802 tax list in Adair Co., KY. Anne Isaacs
appears to be a widow in the 1820 census of Adair Co., KY.

Okay, here we go with a different Robbins line! Seeking connections to those R
obbins of NC who came to AR (Miller Co.) and then into early TX to settle in Mo
ntgomery/Walker/Madison Co.,TX. Is the spouse of Rebecca Robbins, Sr. the wife
of the Nathaniel Robbins, Sr. and they gave issue to sons, Nathaniel, Jr. (Rob
bins Ferry on the Trinity River later to become Clapps Ferry (his son-in-law),
John Robbins, Thomas Robbins and a daughter
called Rebecca Robbins, Jr. who married William Fulcher son of the Francis Fulc
her of Craven Co., NC who moved into Knox/Roane Co., TN in 1800 then moved to C
oles Co., IL or possibly KY prior to Illinois into early Arkanasas Territory (C
rawford Co. AR/Hempstead area) 1830 (Thomas Fulcher res. here) and then acquire
d land in Montgomery/Walker Co., TX in 1835 ...Francis Fulcher died in 1835 in
Walker Co.,TX (Will listed).
The Robbins, Fulchers, Youngs, and others seem to move to TX together perhaps f
rom AR Territory. Jesse Young b ca. 1795 (?) TN (need parents)
settled in Montgomery/Walker Co., TX in 1823/1824 with a wife and 4 children.
His wife, Mary Ann "Polly" Fulcher dau. of Francis Fulcher.
If anyone connects to these Robbins of early TX from NC contact me! Are the Ro
bbins of KY who came into AR to Miller Co. related to the Robbins (Nathaniel)
of Walker Co.,TX? These all came through Nacodoches, TX through the Gateway!
