In Reply to: Robin family in New York City- 1800s by Linda        of 169

"Robert when quite young came to America stopped with friends in Ryegate, Vermont about one year. Went from there to New York City went into the liquor business there and remained fifteen years. Sold out and left for Glasgow Scotland, told me that he had only a British Shilling when arrived said he had a gay time in New York but made no money..."

"Walter the other son of Walter Roben and Isabel Gardner, migrated to New York about 1805 where he remained to his death, he had two children Walter and Mary ....."

"William migrated to America and settled on Long Island, NY at a place called Rockville Center. He was a blacksmith by trade. He had quite a large family therefore he did not accumulate much money. He would make a trip to Scotland occasionally when his brother would make him happy with a sum of money. His last trip there he was stopping with his brother Robert down at his residence on the Clyde near Grennock. He and two of Robert's sons took a row in a boat on the Clyde when the boat capsized and all three were drowned."

Does this sound like the folks you are looking for? If so we may be cousins!!
