Stephen Brindley, born 1812 near Chestnut Mound Tennessee (My Great-Great-Grandfather) had a son named George in 1849, who was also born in Chestnut Mound. This is now Putnam County Tennessee, but then it would have been Smith County. This is probably your Great Grandfather. The dates certainly fit. That makes Stephen (of 1812) your Great Great Grandfathers too. Isaac Montgomery Robinson married Martha Emeline Brindley, who was Stephen's (of 1812) daughter. She was born in 1854 near Chestnut Mound too. Stephen (our GGGrandfather) and his family lived near Gainesboro in Jackson County Tennessee for a while, so that is probably why she returned there after her husband's death in October of 1918. She was returned to Alabama to be buried near her husband I believe.
As for Isaac's father, the 1860 Smith County Census Records, District 10 (which is the old Dixon Springs community which is now in Putnam County), Family #916 lists; Ransom Robinson age 55 born in North Carolina as head, Sarah Robinson age 50, Tn., Soloman Robinson-male age 22, Tn., Mary A. Robinson-20 year old female, James Robinson-18 year old male, William Robinson-16 year old male, Sarah Robinson-11 year old female, and Tolford Robinson-8 year old male, all born in Tennessee. In the same district, Family # 923 is James E. Whitten 33 year old male-head, Mary J. Whitten-28 year old female, ISAAC ROBINSON 14 YEAR OLD MALE, Martha F. Whitten 11 year old female, Susanna Whitten 9 year old female, Elizabeth Whitten 6 year old female, and James Whitten 1 year old male, all from Tn.
This family had a serious shortage of males to work the farm and it's my guess Isaac hired out to them for work, and that Ransom is his father.
Unless I am seriously wrong, and I will check this immediately, Stephen (of 1812) is Your DOUBLE Great Great Grandfather!
