Re: Robertsons in Amherst Co, VA
Our Robertson lines seems to end so far with ARTHUR and Millie (Last name unk) ROBERTSON who is believed to have come from Scotland before 1750.He is found in Amherst Co, VA, Burke Co, SC, Franklin Co, VA and his descendants migrated to TN and MO.
Children of Arthur and Millie are listed as:
THOMAS ROBERTSON b. abt 1762 m. Elizabeth Laine/Lane
HENRY or HARVEY ROBERTSON b. 1768-69 m. Elizabeth Logan
MARY ROBERTSON m. 1789 to Randolph Laine/Lane
ELIZABETH "Betsy" ROBERTSON m. 1790 to Augustine Proffitt
RUTH ROBERTSON m. 1791 John Wray
BENJAMIN ROBERTSON b. abt 1780 m. 1802 to Mary "Polly" Logan (my line)
There are two other brothers thought to belong to this family who fought in the American Revolution according to family stories.I suspect they must have migrated to other states (possibly KY) as we have not found living near our ROBERTSON family in TN or MO.
Would appreciate any insight to these Robertson families in Amherst Co, VA.Thanks. Jan
