Re: Robertson & Baxter Families of MD
In Response To: Re: Robertson & Baxter Families of MD ()
You have no reason to apologize, Daniel. I've just found with my own research that the more details I post (at least involving dead relatives) the more likely I am to have a distant relative recognize my family line. Certain details that I've considered totally insignificant were what eventually lead to my being contacted by other descendants of my ancestors.
My great-great-grandmother was a Robertson from OH. I don't believe we are related; I mentioned this because one thing I have noticed while researching her family is that the names Robertson, Robinson, Robson, etc., were used more or less interchangeably in American records during the 19th and even early 20th century. So I wouldn't rule out your lead regarding the sailor Frank Robinson.
Good luck, Daniel! I will keep my eyes open and if I come across anything about your family I will email you and post it here.
