Will of William Robinson - 18331223


William Robinson
Barnesville, OH
23 Dec 1833

I William Robinson give and bequeath to ... ... sons in ... Henry and Beadmore one quarter section to be equally divided between them on condition of them paying my daughter Jane 100 Dollars to be paid 6 months after my death, the above land being situated on Sunfish Creek Monroe County.

s/illegible Robinson

(Note: Barnesville is in Warren Twp., Belmont Co., OH. Belmont County is the county just to the north of Monroe County, where Sunfish Creek is located. This transcription was done, by Richard E. Henthorn from a xerox copy of an original document. The first line of the will may have read: "I William Robinson give and bequeath to Jane's sons in law, Henry and Beadmon one quarter section...". A last line, before the signature has been crossed out and all but 3 words can still be read, "... give and bequeath my ... ... to my Daughter Jane." This document was in the effects of Nathaniel Henthorne and is in the possession of Paul Henthorne of Idabel, OK, as of April 1993.

Is it possible that Jane Alee, who 1st married William Foggin and later William Henthorn was married 3 times? Could there have been a 1st husband, Unknown Alee? Or are the two persons mentioned in the first line, the sons of William Robinson?

Since the 3rd child of the marriage of William Foggin and Jane Alee was named, Robinson Foggin, and since this document is from the effects of Nathaniel Henthorne, son of Jane Alee's marriage to William Henthorn, I think it is probable that Jane Alee was the daughter of William Robinson and that she named one of her sons, Robinson, in honor of her maiden name. REH, 1 May 1993)
