I realize that you posted this question over 13 years ago but I have a similar question. My 2nd ggf was Daniel B Robinson born in 1830 in the York area and was buried in union county. Daniel was married to Sara McCowan. His son was William J Robinson b 1872 with a brother named John R Robinson b.1879. They are all buried at Mount Harmony Baptist Church in Matthews NC. I grew up on their property in the Vance Township in Indian Trail, Nc and I currently live in Waxhaw. I'm not sure if we are of the same family but my family were planters as well.
I would love to find anyone with information on William or Daniel Robinson. They lived in the Broad River area of York, SC before moving to Union County in the late 1800s.
