ROBINSON, VAN LEAR, PRESTON, DRAPER BRECKENRIDGE. Searching for Col. David ROBINSON of Augusta Co. and Botetourt Co., VA and his relatives, including my gr-gr-g.f. William ROBINSON who descends from these mid 1700's Van Lear's (I believe Gertrude VanLear) and oral history he's cousins of the Breckenridge's and Preston's. David Robinson: Ltn/Capt./Col was very active in French Indian wars and later died in 1806 Lexington, Fayette County, KY. A relative appears to be Elizabeth Robinson Draper who was kidnapped with Mary Draper Ingles. I believe they are all related somehow to George Robinson, an early pioneer from PA. Any information is greatly appreciated! Thanks.
