      THE ROBINSON FAMILY -Robert Robinson came from England in 1684, in the ship "Swan", with his wife and several children, including Edward. Robert Robinson was granted 300 acres of land in New Castle County, on April 3, 1684, according to Pennsylvania Archives. (2) His wife's name is not known, nor those of their other children.

      Edward Robinson was born in England about 1676, and came to Delaware when he was eight years old. He married in 1699, when a pew was assigned to his wife, a member of the congregation. In the census of the congregation taken about 1754, he is described as "An Englishman, but married among us", also as understanding Swedish, but not able to read or speak it.

Deed). A son of John & Susannah Springer was baptized on Mar 7, 1765, the day after his birth, by the pastor of Holy Trinity (Old Swedes) Church, Wilmington ........ a fact which is somewhat confusing.

He was buried, as were all of Charles Springer's sons, in the churchyard of Holy Trinity (Old Swedes) Church, Wilmington, Delaware.

      Searching for Dennis Springer to see if he related to the Springer of Delaware. The following facts are as follows.
      I have copy of the 1790 Census in South Carolina.
      Thomas Springer 1 male over 16
      William Springer with 2 males over 16.
      John Springer with 1 males age over 16, 3 males under 16 and 6 females.
      (Could these men be John list above sons?)
      Hezekiak Springer 1 male over 16, 4 males under 16;
      Dennis Springer 1 male over 16 and 1 female.
      "HOLY TRINITY (OLD SWEDES' CHURCH FOUNDATHION, INC." & Ray Nichols, Archivist. States: JAMES (Jacob) SPRINGER (KARELL) b: 1703 in Christiana Hundred, New Castle Co, DE, d: 1763 in Christiana Hundred, New Castle Co, DE m'd: 1731 in Christiana Hundred, Nya Swerige (New Sweden), PA to 1 MARY BISHOP b: ABT. 1713
      Son 11 Thomas b 1755 was absent when his mother wrote her will in 1786. There was a provision that if he should return after her death he was to get an equal share. It was thought that he may have drowned.
      Question the Thomas listed in the 1790 Census be the missing Thomas and he did not drown as thought? Janet

      We will take the 2 Williams first. William#1 was born blind that is all that is know about this William. William#2 was probably born in the early 1760s which would make him about the right age to fit, but we have no further information on him either.
      Could one of these missing William Springer be the one who is listed in 1790 Census? Janet
      Now for John Springer-It is known that John & Susannah Springer's children are: Sarah Springer b 1762 & David Springer b 1765. It is not known when did Susannah died or did she & John have more children. It is known that after Susannah death, John m.Catherine Bullock & that marriage date was 1779-not known if they had children or not. After the death of Catherine Bullock Springer. It is not known where Catherine was born or were she died or where she married John. The next marriage was in NC in 1783 to Ann Green. She was daughter of William Green. They had {7}children(see below). I do know there was a Rev. John Springer in VA during the Rev War. At the time I found a John Springer in VA I was not looking for him as a father to my Dennis Springer.
      1 William Green Springer b 1790
      2 Lucinda
      3 Katherine
      4 Elizabeth
      5 Nancy
      6 Susanna
      7 Mary Ann.

      Could this John b:Delaware, 1699 md for 3rd time in NC and know to have died in GA. Be the same John found in 1790 Census? Janet -This put another John Springer in VA and NC but as you find he can not be the one who was in 1790 Census.
      Now Jessie states on her webpage that John Springer, 2nd Son of Charles Springer 3rd & Susannah Seeds Springer. was probably born in or near Frederick City, MD-Nov 8, l758, although his date of birth had been set as early as 1755 (Lillian Heath, DAR).Family records say that before his marriage he accompanied Daniel Boone on his 1st exploring expeditions in KY; but whichever birth date is correct, this is obviously unlikely as he would have been very young, He may have traveled w/Boone after the latter brought his family from their former home on the Yadkin River in NC in Sep 1775 & founded Boonesborough & of this exploring period Mable Warner Millikan tells this story of her ancestor & ours, John Springer 1st, "It has been told & retold in the family that on this trip, while hunting one day, he came upon a wild turkey gobbler, almost starved to death in the deep snow. He scraped the snow from the ground, placed some parched corn from his shot bag on the bare place & left the turkey to enjoy his feast." He was back in Frederick County, MD, on Oct 3, 1776, when he signed as a private in a company of militia, raised in the Middle District, Frederick County, by Capt. Valentine Creager & served 3months Some time bet 1775 (Lillian Heath, DAR) & Aug 17, 1778, when their 1st child, Charles Springer 4th, was born in MD, he m.Sarah Ann Butler "of Pennsylvania" but the marriage record has not been found, nor is her parentage known as of 1963. John Springer's sister, Nancy or Ann m. John Silvers (Sylvers) on Apr 7, 1778 (l)& apparently the 2 young couples went to Kentucky County of VA soon after the birth of Charles Springer, Aug 17, 1778 where the 2 Johns served as privates in the company of Capt. Thomas Moore & an expedition against the Indians, under George Rogers Clark. They were apparently living at McConnell's Station, now a part of Lexington. John Springer's name was signed to a petition to the General Assembly of VA, dated May 1, l780, asking that KY be divided for court & muster purposes. (2) The petition was granted & the 3 original counties of Jefferson, Fayette & Lincoln were formed, w/county seats respectively at Louisville, Lexington & Harrodsburg. As John Springer had signed as "one of your inhabitants north of the Kentucky River" he must have had his family w/him - his 1st daughter, Mary, was b: May 9, 1780 - & it is not certain when the family went to the vicinity of Harrod's Fort, the little cluster of cabins which became Harrodsburg. Harrodsburg remained the seat of government for KY for all practical purposes during the rest of the Revolutionary War, (3) & John Springer & John Silvers may have seen service at Harrod's Fort, as the records show that they were paid for 22 days' service in Capt.John Allison's Company of VA militia, enrolled Feb 26, 1780 in the amount of 9 pounds, 4 shillings (I. P. D. 60). Their families must have been w/them in the safety of the Fort, as there was no safety for women & children outside of stockades; so it is likely that Sarah Ann Springer & Ann Silvers were among the women who histories of KY say "Molded bullets while their husbands stood guard & shot the Indians, whom the British in Canada were keeping stirred up against the white men". There is a reconstructed replica of the old Harrod's Fort at Harrodsburg, well worth a trip to KY. According to the "American Guide Series-KY" Harrod's Fort could boast many "firsts". There was a steady stream of immigration into KY from all over the East. The 1st court was held there on Jan 1,1781; the 1st woolen & grist mill was located there, & the 1st corn in KY was raised there; the 1st school house in KY is within the stockade, a small, low building of hewn logs w/a huge fireplace across one end, into which a log could be pushed through a small door (2) opening from the great out-of-doors. There were 5 or 6 cabins along the hill & each had a long pole to push the chimney over if it caught fire. The school was taught by Mrs. William Commes. There were no text books, so the children learned to read from the Bible & hymn books & to write on smoothed boards, w/ink made from ox-galls,{CLB-I believe this should be oak-galls, a type of swelling caused by insects on oak trees-these hard,woody growths yield a blue-black fluid when boiled that has been used as ink for centuries}. John Lythe, one of the 1st missionaries to the frontier people, preached there & Squire Boone, brother of Daniel, walked about the fort w/a Bible in his hand. There George Rogers Clark prepared to march into the Northwest Territory. NOTE FROM JANET: At this time frame: KY & TN were a part of VA & NC. 1790-1800- KY & TN became States. This would make John Springer in VA or NC but listed in KY or TN. This area was named Washington {County-sic}. As read far on in Jessie Springer book. I must state that this John Springer could not be the John Springer in 1790 Census in SC. Read the following & you'll see: John Springer,1st d: Washington County, Aug 17, 1816; Mable says he died as the result of a fall from a horse. The probate record begins on Sep 16, 1816, (17) in probate Book C,pg23, with the awarding of the widow's dower to Elizabeth Springer & continues on pgs24, 32, 260 & 503-1823. The fact that the proceedings are so long drawn out may account for the many dates that have been given for his death. The inventory shows cooper's tools, so he knew that trade, in addition to his farming activities So make to drawing board. Must of Jessie Springer family move west to KY & later to IL. Ours was in SC, TN & nd later in Alabama. Still on the hunt. I hope one day link My Dennis to his parents. For info on my Dennis Springer click here for a link to his page.
