    Wed, Feb 18, 2015: Mr. Yates, This is my children's great-great grandmother. Her daughter, Cora Elizabeth Denbo married Clarence Emmett Earl in Texas. Mary Elizabeth Roberson (Mrs. George Grant Denbo ID# 124364) died at the home of Cora and Clarence Earl in Bynum, Hill County, Texas on 10 Dec 1920. She is buried at Bell Springs Cemetery in Hill County, Texas. I do not have a photo of her stone but I could make one if you want. I am attaching photos of Cora and Clarence Earl's tombstones. They are buried in Waxahachie, Ellis County, Texas. Your research shows that Cora and Clarence Earl were married in Texas. Do you know where?

    Title of List: ROBERSON, GEORGE, All, 1755, United States, Maryland First Name: GEORGE Last Name: ROBERSON Event Type: All Year: 1755 Country: United States State: Maryland City: Language: English (ENG) Description: Dec. of GEORGE-- sons, George, Daniel and Benjamin. MD>KY>IN (Crawford Co.) Date Created: 17-FEB-2002 09:17

    Thomas Woolley b. ca 1785 (MD or VA) married Letty (Violetty) Robertson 4-9-1807, dau. of George Robertson, was married by rev. Joseph Ferguson. Bondsman James Watson certified that Letty was age 21.

    On 4-30-1807 James Watson married Eleanor Robertson in Washington Co. KY per marriage records. Was married by rev. Joseph Ferguson (Methodist minister). George Robertson gave permission for his daughter Eleanor Robertson to marry James Watson who was his step-son.

    George Robinson married Teresy Watson 4-25-1805 in Nelson Co., KY by rev. Joseph Ferguson and James Watson was bondsman.

    Stephen Robinson married Sally Watson on 9-22-1808 in Nelson co., both were over 21 per bondsman James Watson and they were married by Rev. Joseph Ferguson.

    George Robertson appears on the 1799 tax list with 50 acres on the Beechfork until 1805 when he was on the 1805 tax list of Nelson co. back in Washington Co. with 100 acres on the Beechfork in 1806.

    In 1803 Daniel Roberson appears on the Washington Co. KY. tax list with 50 acres on the Beechfork river and George Roberson also had 50 acres on the Beechfork.

    (note there were 2 others George Robertson's-a father and a son George Jr., on diff. watercourse)

    By 1806 Daniel Robeson is gone from Washington Co. and appears on the 1806 tax list of adjoining Hardin Co. KY. and his father (I believe this to be true) George Roberson has 100 acs. on Beechfork in 1806. By 1807 George is missing from Washington Co. tax list and appears on the 1807 tax list of Hardin Co. and Daniel, George and Stephen Robinson are on the 1810 census of Hardin Co. KY.

    The 1814 tax lists shows George Robinson with son George Robinson Jr., and by 1816 Benjamin Robinson joins the 2 George's. By 1818 George Roberson Sr. is gone. George, Daniel, and Benjamin are still there, and remain there until the 1820 tax list and census, then Daniel is gone and George Jr., and Ben there till 1823. They later appear in Crawford Co. IN but brother Stephen Roberson was on the 1820 census of Crawford Co. IN. I'm not sure what happened to George Robertson Sr. or when he died.

    Thomas Woolley that married Violetty had a brother Richard Bolton Woolley b. 1782 MD. who married Nancy Hughes 1805 in Nelson Co. was on the 1809 tax list of Hardin Co. and by 1830, was on the 1830 census of Crawford co. IN. near George Roberson Jr. and have a son. Thomas Jefferson Woolley marries in 1827 to Mary Robertson in Crawford Co. She may have been the youngest daughter of George Sr. or perhaps a daughter of Daniel Roberson as they had a son Daniel Woolley.

    George Sr. appears to be the same one that marries in Prince George Co. MD. King George parish records of 1689-1801 show that a George Robertson married Virlinda Johnston 2 October 1781. The parish register records 2 of their children- Benjamin Roberson b. Sept. 28, 1795 son of George and Violinder Roberson and Elizabeth Ann Roberson b. July 15. 1793, daughter of George and Verlinder Roberson.

    The following were in another district [or land tax vs. personal property?]
    7 Apr William COMBS 2050 acres paid taxes on land for 1792,'93,'94
    14 Apr Samuel COMBS 113 acres on Chaplin
    23 Apr John COMBS 80 acres on Simpson Ck ,pd taxes for1792,'93,'94
    25 Apr Nelson COMBS 100 acres on Simpson Ck, pd taxes for 1792,'93, '94
    25 Apr Edward COMBS, Jr 100 acres on Simpson Ck, pd taxes for 1792,'93,'94
    25 Apr David COMBS 87 acres on SimpsonCk , pd taxes 1792,'93,'94

    John COMBS heirs by Geo ROBERTSON 200 acres in Hardin Co on Ruff (Rough Ck) Sinking Ck

    Notes: Based on the 1794 and 1796 lists, it appears that the second district may have been land taxes as versus personal property; i.e., John (Apr 23 both lists), Nelson and Edward (Apr 25 both lists) were probably one and the same. Who was John COMBS, deceased by 1795? Who was George ROBERTSON?).

    George married Violinda Johnson on 2 Oct 1781 in Prince George's, Maryland. Violinda (daughter of John Summers Johnson and Sarah Riley) was born in 1765 in Prince George's, Maryland. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 9.  Violinda Johnson was born in 1765 in Prince George's, Maryland (daughter of John Summers Johnson and Sarah Riley).
