  2. This whole post is information on James ROBINSON. He is the brother of our John ROBINSON Jr. who married Eliza and moved the family from PA to OH. I am searching records on him for two reasons: 1) to further confirm I have the right John ROBINSON Sr. in PA for our line and 2) because of the interesting story that Dad told me. For reference, here are John ROBINSON Sr.’s children: Nancy McNary, James, William, Thomas, John, George, Issac H. 1. Finding James ROBINSON in Findlay further confirms the John Robinson Sr. (and his father Thomas) theory as I could not find James in Martic Township, Lancaster County, PA. 2. Dad’s story about James; here is the “Person Note” I put into James ROBINSON's entry in my tree: David Milton ROBINSON remembers his father (John Milton ROBINSON) telling him that James ROBINSON(brother of our direct line John ROBINSON) was a post master in Findlay, Ohio. The 1860 census confirms this information. The story further goes that a new post master was appointed when Abraham Lincoln was elected President. It is said that this is when the whole ROBINSON family changed their affiliation from the Republican party to the Democratic party. 1840 Census James ROBINSON is listed in this census in Findlay, OH with a female between 20-29, two females under 5, and one male under 5. The children would be UNKNOWN female, Catharine E., and George W. 1850 Census James ROBINSON (39), Carpenter, PA Delila B. (33), OH Catharine E. (13), OH Geo. W. (11), OH Luther B. (8), OH Mary (4), OH Amis H. (must be James H.) (2), OH 1860 Census James ROBINSON (50), Postmaster, OH Delila (44), Housework, OH George (23), Tinner, OH Luther (18), OH Mary (15), OH James H. (12), OH Elanor Lake (24), OH Nelle Lake (2), Wis. (I do not know who Elanor and Nelle are. If Elanor was a domestic servant; that would’ve been listed here as it was a quite common profession. I speculate that she might be their oldest daughter Catharine and her middle name was used on this census. It seems a bit early for her husband to be in the Civil War. I am not chasing this mystery; it involves a sibling of a sibling so do not believe it will help with the family tree.) 1870 Census Delila ROBINSON (53), Keeping House, value of real estate – 2800, value of personal estate – 500 Luther ROBINSON (28), School Teacher, value of personal estate – 1000 Mary ROBINSON (25) There is no James ROBINSON living with the 3 above. There is a James ROBINSON living in a hotel in Findlay: James ROBINSON (52), Retired Farmer, PA, value of real estate – 5000, value of personal estate – 1500 (This is the only James Robinson in the whole Findlay census so could be Delilah’s husband.) 1880 Census James ROBINSON (70), Self – PA, Father – Ireland, Mother – PA Delilah (63), Self – OH, Father – (this is blank), Mother – PA Mary (35), Self – OH, Father – PA, Mother - OH I found information on when James ROBINSON was elected postmaster to the village of Findlay, Ohio. The reference manual "History of Hancock County Ohio" states that he served his term as postmaster from 31 Dec 1857 to 19 Mar 1861. Note that James ROBINSON also served as Sheriff before his postmaster appointment; between Nov 1852 and Nov 1854. FYI: Lincoln was elected for his first term on 6 Nov 1860. Here is the full text concerning postmasters of Findlay, Ohio: FROM the time that Wilson Vance laid out the village in the fall of 1821, there was a slow but steady increase in its population, though for years Findlay was an insignificant, forlorn looking hamlet. In the winter of 1822- 23 the inhabitants living in the vicinity of the village petitioned the Gov ernment for a postoffice, and on the 8th of February, 1823, an office named "Fort Finley" was established, with Wilson Vance as postmaster. For many years the office was a very poorly paying institution. In 1826 it netted Mr. Vance the extraordinary small income of $3.18, and by 1828 this had increased to only $10, and not more than five newspapers then came to the office. The name was changed in April, 1828, from "Fort Finley" to "Finley;" in March, 1856, to "Findley," and in February, 1870, to"Findlay. " There never was a particle of authority for any other orthography than the last mentioned, as Col. James Findlay, from whom the town derived its name, always wrote his name " Findlay," as did also his brother, Gov. William Findlay, of Pennsylvania. But the postoffice department adopted the same orthography as used in the petition, and the pioneers who sent it knew little and cared less about such matters. What they wanted was a postoffice in the village, and so long as that wish was complied with they were content. It has been heretofore claimed that an office was established at Findlay in 1821, but the following official letter in answer to our inquiry, definitely settles that point: WASHINGTON, D. C., Februarys, 1886. Sir: In reply to your letter of the 1st inst., I beg to say that the records of this office do not show that an office was established at Findlay, Ohio, prior to 1823. Very respectfullv, A. E. STEVENSON, First Asst. P. M. General. The following citizens have been postmasters of the village, the date of each appointment, as officially copied from the records of the department in Washington, being also given: Wilson Vance, February 8, 1823; John C. Wickham, July 27, 1829; Squire Carlin, June 4, 1831; Parlee Carlin, March 1, 1849; Robert Coulter, June 1, 1849; William Taylor, December 26, 1849; Abel F. Parker, April 12, 1853; Oliver Mungen, March 31, 1856; James Robinson, December 31, 1857; Joseph B. RothchHd, March 20, 1861; Cloys B. Wilson, November 9, 1866, but the Senate refused to confirm him, as it was then at war with President Johnson, and Mr. Rothchild filled the office until the appointment of Col. James M. Neibling, as special agent, May 6, 1867; Amariah Ballon, March 20, 1869; Thomas E. Adams, June 5, 1872; Eli G. DeWolfe, March 28, 1876; Winfield S. Hammaker, Novem ber 5, 1885. On the 1st of November, 1864, the postal money order system was established in the United States, and in May, 1865, it was introduced into the Findlay office. Since that time the postmastership has been an office of much greater responsibility than in former years, and the recent adoption of the postal note system has also increased its revenues. From "History of Hancock County, Ohio: Containing a History of the County, its Townships, Towns, Villages, Schools, Churches, Industries, etc.", dated 1886.
  3. The "Story of the John Robinsons", "Written by a grandson, Clayton Wiseley" is attached. It has a lot of good information on the John ROBINSON who moved the family to Findlay, OH. This document is what led me to search manually for John & Eliza ROBINSON in the Marion Township, Hancock County, OH 1840 census. I found them! Plus it gave me the first proof of John's oldest child, Isabella. I still don't know who her Mother was; another mystery to solve. Note that the manual search was required as the census taker failed to put their last name in and the person performing the indexing applied the last name of the previous family which was WISE. This document has correct and incorrect information in it. See my previous post on John & Eliza's wedding date of 15 Oct. 1846; I was able to find a digitized document with the notation in the minister's logbook for marrying John & Eliza. However, the attached document listed the marriage date as sometime in 1844. As more and more information becomes available (given to historical societies and libraries for safekeeping and then digitized) every day, I will be able to cite sources for all the good information in this document. Obituary Transcription: John Robinson, one of the pioneers of Hancock county, died January 12th, at the age of sixty-five. He lived thirty years in that county, and was highly respected by a large circle of acquaintances.

  7. Great Grandpa Robinson (One Person, Many Names) I originally listed Great Grandpa as Richard William (instead of Richard Wilson) on our family tree as the censuses had the following: 1900 Census: William (age 15) Maud J. (age 19) (living at their parents' home still) 1910 Census: Richard W. (age 25) Maud (age 29) 1920 Census: William R. (age 34) Jessie M. (age 39) 1930 Census: Richard W. (age 45) Maude (age 49) After talking with family and also seeing Great Grandpa Willie's draft card (at age 57) attached, I changed his name to Richard Wilson on our family tree. The above just shows how confusing all the different names can get when researching a person.
  8. Another genealogist has researched John S. Thomas (son of Henry); he is descended from John S. Thomas and his second wife, Caroline. This descendent was kind enough to share electronic copies of this handwritten genealogy and a scanned picture of John S. Thomas which he found in his attic and was labeled Grandfather John Thomas. These are both attached; his note on the handwritten genealogy follows:

  11. The Hancock Historical Museum is a privately-funded, non-profit history museum founded in 1970 by five Findlay residents to collect and preserve the rich history of Hancock County. The Museum is located in the Hull-Flater House at 422 West Sandusky Street, and first opened to the public in 1971. An addition was built on to the Hull-Flater House in 1985, serving as an exhibit center and meeting area while also housing the archives and museum collections. At the same time, a barn was constructed behind the museum, currently displaying exhibitions about transportation and agricultural life in Hancock County. The Crawford Log House, originally built in Biglick Township, was then moved behind the barn completing the museum structures housed on Sandusky Street. The Hancock Historical Museum also maintains two sites on County Road 236 – the Little Red Schoolhouse, furnished as a 19th century one-room schoolhouse, and the Riverside Train, a miniature train that once operated at Riverside Park. http://www.hancockhi...icalmuseum.org/ View full record

  19. The Museum, listed on the National Register of Historic places, is located at 33 Ledgelawn Avenue, Bar Harbor. The concept which eventually grew to be the Bar Harbor Historical Society originated in the summer of 1945. In that year, a committee was formed from the directors of the Jesup Library. They decided to exhibit old photographs and pamphlets showing the town’s past in memory of George B. Dorr, the father of Acadia National Park, who died in 1944.The exhibit was such a success that when it closed, the committee was inspired to maintain a permanent exhibit of all historical materials relating to the town of Bar Harbor. The exhibit originally opened in the former Children’s room of the Jesup Memorial Library on August 19, 1946. Since then the collection has grown steadily and we gradually outgrew our space. Fortunately, in November 1997 we were able to purchase the building (formerly the St. Edwards Convent) at 33 Ledgelawn Avenue. https://www.barharborhistorical.org/ View full record
