Just realized that I should be sending these emails to all the mailing lists I am subscribed to. Sorry about the confusion and multiple emails.

Subject: Fw: (Ontario Genealogy) Robinson Information


So far I haven't been able to find any information about his parents or his siblings, until I found the 2004 posting saying that his parents were James & Marg. I have no idea where to look other than the Muskoka area right now. Was Martha Milda (not "Matilda"?) Robinson Sargeant originally from the Muskoka area? My grandfather William Samuel "Bill" Robinson, his grandson, born 17 Feb. 1895 to his son Samuel & Elizabeth (Warren) Robinson , lived in Huntsville (he was an auto mechanic--worked for Dept. of Highways at one time, and also had his own garage in Huntsville at another time). He moved to Owen Sound after his wife/my grandmother died in the 1940's (believe he lived with Pearl Playford who had a rooming house there at the time). But I can't find any info on his death either (he died in early 1950's). That's the only connection to Owen Sound that I know of.

I have information on several other Robinsons in the Muskoka area who "might" be related somehow (maybe siblings), but haven't found any links yet. Sam would have been born in the 1830's I believe (looks like his wife Isabella was born in 1836 so I am assuming he was probably around the same age). From what I have found so far, he and Isabella and children were listed as Irish, religion Church of England. I am guessing that Sam was in his 40's when he died.
