Re: William Robertson of Lafayette Indiana
I have a William Robertson, b. 1803, whose parents were Joseph Rainey Robertson and Susannah Johnson, (We have both of them showing birth range of 1760-1780),
Joseph and Susannah married 24 Nov 1795 in Madison Co.,KY
From the marriage date, and figuring 20-21 age at marriage, I would estimate their births at about 1775 +/- 5 years.
William may have had a son, Solomon Robertson.Tha is all we have of him.
Many of Josephs 8 children show in Indiana, with my line, Johnson, Allen, Harry, and my father Raymond Courtney Robertson, b. 1904, being born/living in Crawfordsville, Montgomery Co., IN
I was born in Indianapolis, IN in 1937
Good luck - who knows may be we are related.John
