Do you know what part of Ireland Robert was born? Our family were in Londonderry during the 1700's. I find these names interesting also because there was a Robert and Vance Marlinhere in Canada in the 1830's. If you find out more about Robert Marlin's siblings or parents please let me know. I know of only a handful of Marlins from the early 1700's in Ireland. George Marlin,John Marlin born 1712, James, William,Edward and Thomas. My ggg grandfather James Marlin was born 1767 in Curran, Londonderry N Ire.
