I am a direct descendent of Jane Downs and John Robinson. Their Children were:

They had their Thomas who is our direct ancestor in Mecklenburg Co, NC in 1784 they later relocated to SC Probably due to Indian wars. Their children were as follows:
1. Mildred 'Milley' Chew Robinson b: 05 MAR 1783 in SC
2. Frances Robinson
3. James Robinson
4. Henry Downs Robinson b: in SC
5. Thomas Robinson
6. John Robinson {Jr.} b: in SC
7. Samuel Robinson b: in SC
8. Jane Robinson b: in SC

Thomas Robinson married Jane Downs also, but it was the daughter of Samuel Downs, Jane his mother’s brother and Mary Crockett. Thomas was born in 1784 in Botetourt Co. VA

Although I do not know where Jane and John are buried, but it has been confirmed that Thomas and Jane Robinson are buried in the Dodson Family Cemetary in Chelsea, AL. I would love to know.

I descend from their son Milas Jay and Nancy Martin, their son Samuel Martin and Mary Ann Jones through their son Hugh Jay and Mary Ellen Billings and my Daddy Lewis Joseph Robinson and my mother Vergie Mae Bethune. This line has been in Alabama since ca. 1842.

I am still puzzled as to who John Robinson's parents are though, if anyone has a clue....Please e-mail me at: pambo@ I've been searching for years. Lots of leads but no proof.

If you're descended from this line I have MUCH more information.

Happy hunting,
Pam Robinson

I have been searching for years also for John Robinson (that married Jane Downs) parents. Have you learned anything?

Nothing definitive. I'm looking at a Joseph Temperance Robinson and then there is a John Robinson who was the pastor of a Presbyterian church "Poplar Tent" right down the road from the Providence Presbyterian Church where Henry Downs Jr. and Frances Chew are married. These both look good. But I still have nothing concrete....It's driving me crazy too!

I know where Thomas Robinson and Jane Downs daughter of Samuel brother to Jane who married John is buried now though. It's in Shelby County Alabama. I live in Madison and plan to one day take a trip down and photograph it. We're close....just not quite there yet!

Could Almbrose Downs possibly be the Ambrose Downs in my husband's lineage? The info I have is that Ambrose Downs was born May 1850 in Mississippi. He fathered William Albert Down,b. 4-17-1881,who fathered Willie Downs, b. 11-10-1903, my husbands father. Thanks!
