>>at Battle of RivThank you so very, very much for all this wondeful new
>>information on Margaret Robinson's husband and her in-laws!
>> Here is some more information to add:
>> In Glenn Cliff's 1977 book, "KY Obituaries 1787-1854" pg 97:
>>"Mrs. Margaret Edmiston, relict of Capt John Edmiston of Fayette County.
>>He fell at the Battle of River Raisin. She died October 8, 1834."
>> And in their son, Dr. Alexander's obituary, who died July 11, 1812,
>>it states he was their only son. He left a young wife and parents both
>>still alive. No children. He died Lancaster Garrard co., KY.
>> Their daugther, Mary md. 24 July 1805 to James Richardson.
>> Another daughter, Margaret Edmiston, md. Sept 13, 1809 to William C.
>>Pruitt/Prewitt. In her uncle Col. William Robinson's 1813 Clark Co., KY
>>will she got $200. For clues to more descendants see:
>> for biography on Levi Prewitt, their grandson and his children, in
>>the Fayette co., KY gen. web page.
>> Also John Montgomery Edm. and his father are both in the DAR PATRIOT
>> Margaret Robinson, his wife, was probably born in Lancaster County,
>>Pennsylvania, like her brothers. The family (parents unknown) moved in
>>mid-1700's to Augusta county, VA... the part that later became known as
>>BOTETOURT COUNTY, VA. Around 1883, some of the family started to move to
>>the Lexington, Fayette County, KY area, including Margaret. Her two
>>brothers- Col's David and William Robinson had gone there in 1775 to
>>survey and claim their military land grants. They left when they heard
>>about the Revolution and returned in 1883 after the War ended.
>> Washington county, VA and Montgomery Co., VA were once part of
>>Botetourt Co. as I understand it.
>> Hopefully, this can help add to your information.
>> Thank you for adding to my family history!
