Bio and Links
Bio Photo My direct ancestral line in America begins with the Robinsons of Cambridge, MA, with William Robinson (1640-93) and Elizabeth Cutter (1645-92) being one of the first 56 members of Cambridge Village, MA and also the lineal family of Captain Richard Olmsted (1612-87), an original proprietor of Hartford, CT.


If you could see your ancestors
All standing in a row,
Would you be proud of them or not,
Or don't you really know?

Some strange discoveries are made
In climbing family trees,
And some of them, you know, do not
Particularly please.

If you could see your ancestors
All standing in a row,
There might be some of them, perhaps,
You wouldn't care to know.

But here's another question, which
Requires a different viewó If you could meet your ancestors,
Would they be proud of you?

I am sorry that I can't tell you if Caroline Robinson is buried by George. I rather doubt it as he remarried to Ruth Rosser Brown in 1913 and later adopted her two boys, one of which is my father. Interesting...uh? If you find anything else let me know and I so appreciate that someone took a picture of the headstone for him.. Elizabeth Chesebrough

Mr. Robinson, I would like to thank you for such a nice page you have made for my 3rd great grandfather. If it hadn't been for you I would had never found his grave. I'm not going to ask you turn the page over to me because all the hard work you have done with it but if there is ever a time you would like for someone to take it off your hands I would be more then happy to. I'm hoping some day to get to go see his grave and plant some flowers on it. You wouldn't happen to know how it came about for him to be where his grave is would you?

RE: John - Electa Capron

Thanks for the response. I would be interested in the Olmsted book and to do more research on the line Babcock/Capron lines. I am a DAR member and there is some conflicting information on Electa and Amanda's parentage in their records and I am trying to gather well documented proof to help resolve it.

John - Electa Capron

I see you added some information on Electa (Babcock) Capron's memorial recently and I wanted to find out if you have any documentation that they were actually married in 1818. I descend from Electa's sister Amanda who was also married to John Capron before she died shortly after childbirth in 1822. Amanda is buried in Swanton, VT at Church Street Cemetery. I would like to correspond further with you on the Capron/Babcocks. You may email me at or

My name is Robert Sloan and I recently retired from the position of President of Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, DC. Currently I am researching the history of Sibley which began with Jane Bancroft who married your relative George O Robinson on May 7, 1891. Together they were substantial supporters of Sibley and other Methodist institutions. There was a Robinson Hall at the old Sibley on North Capital St.

Do you have any knowledge of Jane Bancroft Robinson? I am looking for letters, correspondence, pictures, newspaper articles and anything else that might be of interest between Jane Bancroft and George O. Robinson and the Methodist denomination and/or Sibley Hospital. Thank you for any information that you can provide. My e-mail address is

Thank you for your work on the Heaths!
I just dropped in for a minute and thought I'd say THANK YOU for reaching out to me via email with information about the Heaths, and for documenting your research here and elsewhere publicly. I also appreciate you connecting me with distant cousins, which has helped a lot at filling in holes in our research!

RE: Mt Avon Cemetery, Rochester, MI
DAR, I did not find a David Green or Greene in the Old Ground nor in Section 1. Those are the only sections for which I have records.
