It dawned on me (duh!) a few weeks ago that Rebecca Robinson Hay's sister, Hannah Robinson, married a Robinson (a cousin, perhaps?)

Upon reading your data on the two Hay families of Augusta, VA, it was obvious that my Charles Hay was not directly connected to those families, yet........lingering questions remained in my mind.

The Chalkley Chronicles referred to a James and Hannah Robinson dated 1769. And I have the record from GreenvilleCo, SC where in 1772 James and Hannah Robinson sell land to Jameston Hatcher, bro-in-law of Charles and Rebecca, who are also there in GreenvilleCo.

When I read your 2nd Robinson file, I was looking for a James who could have been Hannah's husband and there it was!!

4. JAMES3 ROBINSON (JAMES2, JAMES1)6 was born Abt. 1717 in Of Augusta County, Virginia6. He married HANNAH ???.

I'd bet the ranch this is Rebecca Robinson Hay's sister, Hannah.

I have no clue yet where Charles Hay met and married Rebecca, nor do I know where his sister, Sarah, married an unknown Bowling before she married Jameston Hatcher, but I really do believe Charles Hay/Rebecca, James Robinson/Hannah, and Sarah Hay/Bolding were in GreenvilleCo, SC in 1772. For many reasons, our research indicates that it was likely that Sarah Hay Bolding's husband died in SC c1775 and shortly thereafter she married Jameston. I believe Sarah and Jameston had not known each other earlier. By 1780 Charles and Jameston were in WashingtonCo, VA/TN. I don't know if James/Hannah returned with them.

Notes for DAVID ROBINSON, COL.: From Augusta County, Va query:

posted by Kay Dorneman on Friday, August 15, 1997

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.
