  • Notes 
    • Robinson - James Robinson Sr. 1752-1832 whose wife¬ís name was Mary (an Indian maiden of the Tuscarora tribe) moved to Wayne County Georgia in the early 1800s. Many of their descendants lived in what is now Charlton County Georgia. Robert Robinson born 11/22/1836 in Traders Hill, who served with the Okefenokee Rifles along with several brothers four of these brothers losing their life during the Civil war. Thanks to James Robinson descendant Roger Layton Crews for this information. Note: Greg Wainright may also be a descendant as James Wainwright (brother of Joseph) was supposedly married to James' grandaughter Nancy Robinson as his second wife. However, some sources cite Nancy Cooper as his 2nd wife. http://members.aol.com/gregwain5/native.htm

      I tried to locate Roger Layton Crews in January, 2007 to ask him about Mary being an Indian maiden but discovered he had died in August, 2006. acw

      From Folks Huxford, Pioneers of Wiregrass Georgia, Volume 7, pages 349-350:
      James Robinson, Sr., RS served as James Robson in the North Carolina militia in the Revolutionary War (see p 215, "Roster of North Carolina Soldiers in the American Revolution"), and in the 1827 Georgia land lottery, he drew land as a Revolutionary soldier as "James Roberson" of Wayne County (page 42 Reprint, Georgia Land Lottery 1827). He drew lot 402, 8th District of Appling (now Ware) county. The sons, James, Jr., and Wiley lived in Wayne County and son John in Appling County. The other sons evidently moved to GA after 1820. James and wife were living alone in the 1830 census of Wayne, each between 70 and 80 years old. Mrs. Ruth Robinson Moody of Nahunta, Georgia, was the first descendant of James Robinson, R.S. to be accepted on his record of service by the DAR. She was accepted April 14, 1973; her National number is 577937; she is a member of John Floyd Chapter, DAR. She descends through the son, James Jr., and the latter's son Mark.
