William Robinson was born in 1807 in Mercer County, Kentucky.  He married Sarah Jane Lapsley, daughter of James Finley Lapsley and Charlotte Adeline Cleland, April 9, 1833.  William and Sarah had at least four children, Mary E., Charlotte, George and Sarah F.  Mary and Sarah died at a young age.  Sarah Jane died May 6, 1849, less then a month after her daughter Sarah, and slightly less than a year after her birth.  Perhaps there was a childbirth illness that left her weak and unable to recover.  William lived for another eleven years, dying before the outbreak of the Civil War.  Children Charlotte and George lived to adulthood and into their 70’s.  This family is buried at New Providence Presbyterian Cemetery in rural Mercer County.
