Tombstone Tuesday--Elizabeth Hill Robinson

Since I will be in Morgantown, West Virginia most of the week, I decided to feature a family member who is buried there. This is my great great grand aunt, Elizabeth Hill Robinson, daughter of Joseph Davidson Hill and Sarah Houston Hill. She was born in Monongalia County, probably on the Hill Farm, north of the town of Morgantown, West Virginia.

She married John Davidson Robinson on December 19, 1839 in Monongalia County, (West) Virginia. To the union ten children were born.

  1. Francis Marion Robinson
  2. Joseph Hill Robinson
  3. Henry Clay Robinson--died at age 11
  4. Minter Erastus Robinson
  5. Margaret Olivia Robinson--married into my Harner line
  6. Ledrew Marcellus Robinson--died at age 21
  7. Eustace Leon Robinson
  8. John Otis Robinson
  9. Warwick Ross Robinson
  10. Ulysses Grant Robinson

Elizabeth and John are buried in Pleasant Hill Cemetery, Monongalia County, West Virginia, not too far from Morgantown. Numerous other family members are also in this cemtery, including Elizabeth's parents, who are paternal my great great grandparents.
