In a 1933 typescript publication entitled "Lineages of Some Early Hillsdale County Families," compiled and indexed by Vivian Lyon Moore, one finds the following descendancy from George ROBARDS and Temperance MONROE:
George ROBARDS, b. 22 Jul 1794, d. 16 Sep 1845 m. abt. 1815 Temperance MONROE, b. 11 Feb 1794 NY, d. 6 Nov 1863 [Note:] both are buried in Mt. Hope Cem., Litchfield, Hillsdale Co., MI

James Nelson ROBARDS (1831 MI-1912 MI) m(1) Sep 1855 Kate HARTMAN (div. 1873) m(2) Mary TERWILLIGER 5. John M. ROBARDS (1832 MI-?) m. Sara -?-

[Note:] #3 Jason ROBARDS is the father of Jason ROBARDS, who died recently.
Perhaps this information will help ROBARDS researchers untangle Jason ROBARDS' ancestry. Vivian Lyon Moore was apparently a resident of Hillsdale County and states she had firsthand knowledge of the lineages she included in the publication and used other family members' as sources as well.
