Robertson Family History

 

Descendants of James Robertson

 

Generation No. 1

1. JAMES2 ROBERTSON (WILLIAM1) was born 04 February 1799 in Pennsylvania, and died 05 August 1878 in Fulton (Harris TWP) Illinois. He married ANNE CASLETT 23 December 1823 in Pennsylvania, daughter of WILLIAM CASLETT and MARGARET MCMICHAEL. She was born 08 September 1805 in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, and died 1871 in Ohio or Illinois.

Notes for JAMES ROBERTSON:

I have some information from the Robertson family who live in Maimi, OK (Samuel D. Robertson's line) that indicates that my first Robertson in America came to Boston from Scotland just prior to the Revolutionary War to escape persecution from the British. They state that this Robertson married in Mass., possibly in Boston and had two boys and one girl. This Robertson's "script grant" was in Pennsylvania, possibly Philadelphia. From Pennsylvania, one Robertson boy moved to Tennessee and the other boy (my James?) moved to Ohio, then to Missouri and finally to Kansas - this can't apply to my James since he died in Fulton County, IL in 1878. The girl never married and stayed with the land in Pennsylvania. This source (History of Ottawa Co. OK) states that one of James' sons, Samuel D. and his son Grover C. shared in the settlement of James' estate. The source also states that the family received money from land in downtown Philadelphia until about 1970. I can find no proof to support this account.

Have information provided by the research of George L. Robertson, son of Andrew Robertson, that says that James Robertson was born in Pratt County, Pennsylvania (there never was a county by this name in Pennsylvania). He also says that James' wife was Ann Caslett who was born in Westmoreland County, PA.

Census data indicates that James and Anna (Anne) were both born in Pennsylvania and married in Pennsylvania in 1823. First known appearance in Ohio was around 1828 when their daughter Mary (Polly) was born. All children prior to Mary were born in Pennsylvania. Information indicates that James and family probably moved from Pennsylvania to Ohio around 1828, to the Adams County, Ohio area (Wayne TWP) and then to the Jackson Township in Brown County, Ohio area, possibly to Pike County, OH and then to Livingston County, IL., and finally to Fulton County, Illinois. James was living in Harris TWP - Fulton County, Illinois in 1870 census living with either Samuel or William Robertson, both of whom were living nearby. The 1865 Fulton County, IL state census for Harris TWP has no record of a Robertson family member living there at that time.

A check of deed records in Adams, Brown, and Pike Counties, OH found no record of James Robertson buying any land from 1828 until 1859. The only exception was a record of an appraisal plot in Benton TWP, Pike County, OH that showed a James Robertson owning 118 acres in 1858-9. However, a check of a deed record for this same plot indicates that a James Robinson and his wife Catherine owned this land from 1835 until he sold it in 1867 (by this time there is no mention of his wife).

In the 1835 Ohio Tax Duplicates, there is a record of a James Robinson living in Adams County, Wayne TWP, OH on a lot or Virginia Military District land, page B38.

Death register (#149) on file in Courthouse at Lewistown, Illinois states that James Robinson, W/M, 77yrs, 6 months, 1 day old, died on 5 August 1878 and is buried in McCamson Cemetery in Fulton, Harris TWP, Illinois. I strongly suspect that this is McBeth Cemetery, also known as Rigdon #1 - Foster-Robertson Cemetery since there were also McCammon people buried there along with Samuel D. Robertson's wife Susan who died there in 1875 and two of Samuel and Susan's kids. L.L Brick, MD of Marietta, IL. stated on the death register that James died of pneumonia after an eight day illness. The doctor further stated that James was a widower, an american born in Pennsylvania, a farmer, and had lived in Illinois for 19 years or since about 1859. Date of burial was also noted as 5 August 1878.

James and family appear in the 1850 Ohio census living in Jackson Township - Brown County, Ohio. Their son David must have died in Ohio by 1850 since he doesn't appear in 1850 census with rest of family. It appears that some of James' children moved to the Livingston and McLean County, Illinois area around 1853 or 1854 based on children's ages and locations of birth as noted in the 1860 census. The move may have occurred due to the arrival of the Chicago and Alton Railroad in the eastern part of Illinois that opened up the counties that they moved to about this time. There was a large influx of people to this region about this time.

According to James' death register information, it appears that James did not move to Livingston County, Illinois until around 1859. Unknown if his wife Anne had died by 1859 since she doesn't appear in 1860 census with James. By the 1860 census, James is living in Livingston County (Avoca Township), Illinois with daughters Mary, Isabell, Nancy and son Robert. In the 1860 census, John had married and was living in Livingston County and William had married and was living in Mclean County. There is a possibility that Samuel had married and was living in Schuyler County although his age is off somewhat in the 1860 census.

Anne does not appear in the 1860 or 1870 census - she may have died prior to 1860. Initial data from family members indicated that Anna died in 1871, unknown location. John appears in 1870 Illinois census still living in Avoca TWP in Livingston County. Andrew and family show up in 1870 Illinois census living in Lexington TWP, McLean County.

Samuel D. shows up in 1870 Fulton County, Illinois census, McDonough County, IL in 1880 census, and eventually moved to Cass County, Missouri and finally to Kansas - Cherokee, Linn, and Montgomery Co. where he died at Dearing. William, Samuel D. and James Sr. are also living in Fulton County in 1871 according to county atlas. They are living near Grenard and Dimmitt families.

There is an unconfirmed family story (Joyce Holthouse) about a young Robertson boy who served as a drummer boy during the Civil War.

Notes for ANNE CASLETT:

Unknown if spelling was Anna or Anne. Unknown where she was born or married in Pennsylvania. Unknown date of death although census information indicates that it may have been sometime between 1850 and 1860. Other information notes that she may have died in 1871. No exact location of death.

She was born 28 October 1856 in Indiana, and died 22 September 1916 in Elkhorn TWP, MO (McDonald Co.).

Notes for ROBERT E. ROBERTSON:

Robert may have been born in Adams Co. Ohio (county seat is West Union) on 8/10/1845. From Ohio, he probably moved to McLean County, Ill. (county seat is Bloomington) with his father and family. Married to Elizabeth in Lewistown (Fulton County), Ill. on 9/19/1876 and they had their first child, Orville, a little over a year later on 11/25/1877 in Bushnell, Ill. Robert was living in Harris Township - Fulton County, Illinois at time of marriage. Elizabeth's parents were from Kentucky, but had lived in Indiana where Elizabeth was born. Her parents (Vezey and Sarah A. Grenard) lived in Fulton Co. Ill. at time of Elizabeth's marriage and then in Bushnell Ill. until at least 1895.

By 1879 Robert and family were in Winterset (Madison Co.) Iowa where their second child Nancy Mae was born on 2/28/1879. Robert and family and his brother J.W. Robertson are listed in 1885 Iowa state census living in Madison County, IA, Webster TWP, #75, range 29, section 20. It appears that they lived in Madison County, IA until at least 1894/95 since records indicate that Gladys was born there on 12/3/1894.
