The Robison Family



Beginnings

By the late 1700s or early 1800s, the "R" family (the spelling of the family name has varied from family to family) had pushed into the southern portion of middle Tennessee, south of the Duck River, but not yet across the Tennessee River. Rapidly thereafter they appear on the north/east and south/west bank of the Tennesse River in Alabama, Mississippi, and Tennessee. And it was not long before family groups pushed on to Arkansas, Indiana, Missouri, Indian/Oklahoma Territory, and, of course, Texas.

It is not known if this family is decended from James Robertson, early leader of the Orange County, NC Regulators and co-founder of French Lick (Nashville), TN. Robertson's immigrant party of about 300, entered middle Tennessee by going overland (as opposed to river travel) through the Cumberland Gap into Kentucky then down into Tennessee. Some slight evidence exists that this is the settlement pattern of our Robisons.
