Hezekiah MIXUP
Posted by: Tom Hoot (ID *****4549) Date: July 10, 2007 at 11:24:45

Can anyone shed any light on the two Hezekiah's?

Most people show this Hezekiah (INCORRECTLY) as the son of Hezekiah Robinett & Margaret Ellen Hyatt...who were both born in Maryland.

Descendants of Hezekiah Robinett
       1        Hezekiah Robinett       b: Oct 1826 in Athens Co., OH       d: Unknown in ?M, D, Y - MISSING PLACE both parents born in OH                                   
..              +Elizabeth Clark       b: 1829 in Probably Athens Co., OH       d: Aft. Jul 1860 in Probably Athens Co., OH       m: 05 Feb 1852 in Athens Co., OH

       2        Elisa Robinet       b: 1859 in VA       d: Bef. 1870 in Athens Co Ohio                                   
       2        Anna Robinet       b: 1861 in Athens Co., OH                                          
       2        John William Robinet       b: Nov 1863 in Athens Co., OH

.       3        Henry Robinet       b: Apr 1899 in OH

This is the correct Hezekiah son of Hezekiah Robinett & Margaret Ellen Hyatt

Sorry, I do not know who the parents were of the Hezekiah Robinett who married Elizabeth.

Looks like there was more than one Hezekiah Robinett living in Athens County Ohio, but different townships. One married to Elizabeth and another married to Miriam.
I found a couple of researchers had Hezekiah son of Hezekiah and Margaret married to Elizabeth in 1852 and then to Miriam in 1861. From the census below, Elizabeth was still alive in 1880. As was Miriam.

(There was another Hezekiah Robinett who was born 7 Nov 1825 Lee Twp, Athens,OH who died 19 Nov 1849 same place, son of Eliphalet Robinett and wife Eliza.)

In the 1860 Census, Canaan, Athens Co., OH. (p. 108) A Hezekiah Robinett age 29 is listed with Elizabeth age 34, Catharine age , Julia age 5, Malissa age 4, Elisa age 1.

I couldn't fine them in the 1870 census, probably transcribed incorrectly. (TEH see Canaan, Athens Co., OH)

In the 1880 Census, Rome Twp, Athens Co, Oh. A Hezekial Robinett age 51 is shown with wife Elizabeth age 53 and son John age 15.

In the 1900 Census, Decatur Twp, Washington Co., OH. a Hezekiah Robinett is listed age 73 yrs old, widowed, born Oct 1826 in OH, with son, John W. and his family.

1860 Census, Waterloo Twp, Athens co.,OH. Hezekiah age 30, Margaret age 85, William age 26 and Marion age 16 (male).

(Evidently Margaret's husband, Hezekiah, died prior to the 1860 Census, and Margaret probably dying prior to the 1870 census.)

In the 1870 Census, Waterloo Twp, Athens Co.,OH. Hesekiah age 44 is listed with Miriam age 25, Rumina age 8, Willie age 5.

In the 1880 Census, Waterloo Twp, Athens Co., OH. A Hesekiah age 59 is listed with Miriam age 37, Rumina J., age 18, William age 15 and Alfred age 11/12.

Miriam died in 1913, but I couldn't find her again in the census, I don't believe she remarried. Most likely her Hezekiah died in 1893, both are probably buried in New Marshfield Cemetery, Waterloo Twp, Athens Co.,OH. Their daughter, Rumina Robinett Clendenin and her husband are buried in the same cemetery.

Any Idea who the parents of the fellow that married Elizabeth are?

Looks like everyone has things wrong.

I was looking at your Robinett data at WorldConnect. I just started researching this surname for a friend. His line is from Rumina Jane Robinett (born about 1862), who was listed in the 1870 and 1880 census as daughter of Hesekiah (sic) and wife Miriam in Waterloo, Athens Co., OH. I found a marriage record in Athens Co., OH as
ROBINETT, Hezekiah/BROOKS, M. --14 Mar 1861; Volume 4, page 217.

Hezekiah Robinett was listed in the 1860 census in "Waterloo", Athens Co.,OH as a head of household with Margaret Robinett, age 85 (probably his mother), William age 26 (probably his brother) and Marion age 16 (probably his brother). This Hezekiah wasn't shown to be married.

According to your data and most others, you show Hezekiah Robinett, son of Hezekiah and Margaret, as being married to Elizabeth Clark 5 Feb 1852 in Athens Co.,OH. I did find that marriage record, but I believe this Hezekiah Robinett and Elizabeth Clark and their children lived in "Canaan", Athens Co., OH according to the 1860 census.

Could you please tell me where your information came from that shows the Hezekiah Robinett who married Elizabeth Clark was the son of Hezekiah Robinett and Margaret Hyatt of "Waterloo", Athens Co.,OH?

Thank you, I would appreciate any help you could give me.
