Samuel and Clara were said to be "of" Wayne County, NY
There is definitely a conflict over which daughter of Moses married Fairing Wilson and which one married Samuel Robinson. O. Turner does not say which of his aunts was which. The Warde book says Lydia married Samuel Robinson. The town records of West Stockbridge, MA, give the births of the children of Fairing Wilson and LYDIA.
I believe that I found "Clary" Robinson in the 1850 census in the village of Newark, Town of Arcadia, Wayne Co NY. She was age 67, born in New York. Living with her was Paulina Robinson age 32 and Anna Canouse age 29 with Theodore P. Canouse age 2. The child was born in Michigan. I would guess these might both be her daughters.
In 1860, Paulina Robinson, age 40, was living in the household of Benjamin F. Wright in Arcadia.

No marriage record has been found for Samuel & Clara Allen. I suspect the Allens lived in Rupert, Bennington Co, Vermont in 1790 - they were found there next door to Roswell Turner who married Clara's sister. By 1800, the Allens were apparently all living in Otario Co, New York, but the exact year of arrival of all the family has never been determined.
There was a family of Robinsons in Vermont. I thought perhaps Samuel might fit in that family. This is what I've learned about the Vermont Robinsons. This particular book was not a good source, but I have kept the data hoping to eventually discover more about the family. All the Samuels of appropriate age seem to have other wives.
