The first Mills Robertson in our family was s/o Jeffrey Robertson and Judith Tanner 1)Mills 2)Robertson. Judiths first husband was Henry Mills. Another Mills Robertson, which may be yours, was the son of a brother of Jeffery named Tyre or, I guess, John Tyre. Jeffrey Robertson (2) was s/o Jeffery Robertson and Elizabeth Bowman, d/o John Bowman. The first Jeffery came to James Citie, VA on the "Blessing" in 1698, probably from Perth. He got a headright of 50 acres from Rev. George Robertson in 1703 in Henrico County, VA
My regular pc with all my info is in the shop, but you can search and find 14-15 Jeffery Robertson sites, and get the info you need. Happy Hunting, Beth Austin
