Jane's Genealogy Jigsaw
Quick Overview || Documentation || Links
The Robison family is believed to be of Scotch-Irish origin, but it is still not certain who the first immigrant was. The family settled in Pennsylvania, in what was to become Saville Township, Perry County. While some family members stayed there, others moved on to Crawford County, Ohio, and places further west.
My thanks to all the other Robison researchers who have kindly shared their efforts with me.
