This is from
History of Logan County, W.Va.
by Henry Clay Ragland 1896
I can't find Robert Lilly's parents. Robert Lilly died after 1860. He was living in Logan county, West Virginia in 1860 according to the census. People say he is the son of Robert Lilly born in 1696-1810 but that is not true. According to History of Summers County, pub. 1906 by James H. Miller. Robert Lilly 1696 had 4 sons Thomas, Edmond, Robert and William. The Robert was born in 1720-1828. "Robert Lilly, one of these sons, died on Guyan River about the year 1828, at the age of 108 years" The book list all of The Original Robert sons children except Robert. So Robert Lilly 1776 might be one of his sons but according to a document I seen he refered to himself as Robert Sr. he had a son Robert jr. I can't find that document. If he refered to himself has a Sr. I don't think his Father was Robert Lilly but I am not sure.
