I have not been able to locate a Robbins Creek in NC or SC in what was old Tryon county. Lincoln County got the Tryon County records because the old courthouse was there when Rutherford and Lincoln were created.Since then Cleveland County was carved out of Lincoln and Rutherford, and Polk was later taken from Rutherford.The Broad River reference was likely in present day Rutherford.Robbins Creek (just a guess) could have been the same as today's Henson Creek since the Robbins and Henson families were closely connected in the late 1700's in Tryon County.Henson's Creek heads up in Polk County and flows through Rutherford before emptying into Broad River.All in North Carolina.I don't know what happened to John to cause him to leave the area. According to Bobby G. Moss, Revolutionary War historian, "John served several tours of duty with the patriot militia form Spartanburg District- mostly under Capt. Abner Caulier and Col. Benjamin Roebuck from 1779 to 1781. After the Revolution, he moved to Georgia".
