Hancock County, OH Biographies

S. G. ROBINSON, farmer and stock raiser, P. 0. McComb, was born in Erie County, N. Y., May 29, 1839, son of B. E. and Sarah (Gail) Robinson, the former a farmer and a native of Fairfield County, Ohio, of Irish descent; the latter a native of Erie County, N. Y., of English descent. Of their six children five are still living, the subject of this sketch being the eldest. S. 0. Robinson was reared on the farm in Erie County, N. Y., until seven years of age; next lived on a farm in Franklin County, Ohio, until he was twenty years old; then came to this county, where he has since continued to reside. He walked the entire distance from Franklin County, Ohio, to this county, and when he arrived here he was a poor boy with only one suit of clothes and no money, but he was willing to labor. He worked out at 50 cents per day, clearing land and chopping wood; also worked by the month until he was able to buy eighty acres of wild land, which he cleared, and on which he still resides. In 1859 Mr. Robinson was united in marriage with Mary, daughter of Enoch Haddox, a native of Virginia. Five children blessed this union: Edgar, Estella, Ida, Samuel and Everett. Mrs. Robinson departed this life in 1875; she was a member of the Methodist Church. S. G. Robinson is at present the owner of 200 acres of well improved land. In politics he is a Republican. He was a delegate to the first Republican convention, in 1856. He has been school director for twelve years, and in 1884 was elected justice of the peace.
