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?

Fanny Foss
I am almost speechless I am so excited to get the information you sent. Fanny was my 3rd great grandmother and I could not figure out her maiden name or her history before she married Nathaniel. You have solved a mystery for me and I so appreciate you passing the information on to me. Bless you!

Capt. John Weeks
Hi Douglas! I am descended from patriot John Weeks (m. Thankful Slade)through the daughter of his son John Weeks (d. 1810), Aurelia Weeks Smith (who was born after her father's death). I have long suspected that John and his twin sons, Jedediah and Philo were buried in the Webster Cemetery and was excited to see your recent posts and information on my Weeks family. Would you be willing to share where you got the information? Some of what you posted is new to me, such as the "Capt." part of John Weeks. Thank you kindly. -- dls

Valentine Goodrich
I checked this out a little further and the Valentine who married Ann Robinson was the son of Valentine who married Sally Emery Goodrich Ayer. It was Sally's husband who died at Lundy's Lane as proven by the copy of her pension from him recorded in the National Archives. That will take you one generation further back.

Looking more at the Robinson might bring you even further back- the daughter of William Swan and Mary Russell, Mary Swan married William Robinson. She is my 4th gr Aunt. Her sister, Jane, married Richardson Emery and is the mother of Sally Emery Goodrich Ayer. Look at my "Mom's Ancestral Line" on My grandmother was Nina Emery Tamer. She was the daughter of William Emery and Jennette Cline. William's parents are Enoch Emery and Alzina Canfield. Enoch is the son of Russell Emery and Polly Emery, who were 1st cousins. Russell is also the son of Richardson and Jane and Sally's brother.

Mary Swan, sister of Jane Swan Emery married William Robinson. All these names being repeated make for a lot of confusion.
Jane Swan Emery was the mother of Sarah/Sally Emery Goodrich Ayer.
This can also be verified in History of Clinton and Franklin Counties by Duane Hamilton Hurd.

RE: Valentine Goodrich
I think from what I worked on the Valentine who married Ann Wetmore was the son of Valentine who died at Lundy's Lane and was married to Sally Emery Ayer. It was Sally who filed for the pension. You will see all this on the ancestry chart I sent you. The pension application can be found at the National Archives and the cover sheet is attached.

RE: Chesebrough
George is buried in the Lakewood Cemetery in Mpls. Sec. 18 , lot 60 grave 6. He divorced Caroline sometime before 1900 I think as his 1900 census shows divorced. I think he married her at her parents home in 1882, She remarried a (Ellis? not sure of this first name but shows up on a family tree on ancestry,but he seemed to go by just
Romaine Pierson in 09-11-1918 and was residing in New York with him for a long time. He died in 1932 and I think probably in NY. She lived there for some time after his death as near as I can figure. As she came from a prominent family and he seemed to have an important position, she might be buried in her parents family plot or his family's. To my knowledge she is not by George, but you can check that out. There is a lot out there on the Robinson home, family, etc.

Valentine Goodrich
For many years, the Emery family of Richardson whose wife was Jane Swan has said that Valentine married his daughter, Sarah aka Sally Emery. After his death,at Lundy's Lane, she married Uriah Ayer and they lived in Schuyler Falls, Ny.

Now, the story also includes the fact that Sally's mother was Jane Swan whose sister married a Robinson. They were from New Hampshire- so was Richardson and died in West Peru, NY now called Schuyler Falls. Check out my Emery family on Mom's Ancestral Lines (NancyFayette12).
