interest to most.
Some information on non-direct lines has been gained from cousins that
have shared their info with me. This should be considered a guideline
only and corrections, additions, and/or discussion is most welcomed!

From: "Charles Johnson" <>
"Concerning the Michael Robinson who married Mary Martin. I have found
the first name "Michael" earlier in Northern Neck records, especially
the Westmoreland County area. It is possible that this Robinson family
came from that area but I have been unsuccessful in identifying
Michael's roots. I can, however, make some assumptions as to his class
in society. He was a community leader of some wealth and connections.
He had a home in downtown Fredericksburg that is now a excellent
library. In 1772 he sold his home in Fredericksburg to George
Washington who used it as a residence for his elderly mother, Martha
Ball Washington. The house is now known as the Mary Washington House,
an excellent museum with a good genealogy section on the Washingtons.
It is perhaps significant the George Washington also knew the John
Robinson line of Middlesex County. With all his traveling George
probably had met most of the major political and social leaders of
Virginia so it is not surprising that he had contacts with both Robinson
lines."
