      Unable to find Children in Census without knowing their DOB because name is too common in the area

      John Wesley Roblin (Owen2,Owen1) son of Owen Roblin Jr. and Mary Elizabeth Ruttan was born about 1803 in Adolphustown. John married Deborah Rightmyer February 21, 1827. Deborah was born about 1805, daughter of Peter/Petrus Rightmyer and Phebe Allison.

      John and Deborah settled in Sophiasburg.

      It appears that both John and Deborah died before 1861 or possibly even 1851. There have been no stones or location of burial found. They are not found in the 1861 Sophiasburg Census and there is no surviving 1851 Sophiasburg Census. In 1851 Rachel, age 22, is living with Isaac Reynolds and wife Sarah (these could be the parents of Rachel Reynolds, wife of cousin, Joseph Roblin b.c. 1829) . In 1861 Catharine, age14, and John, age19, are living with their sister Catharine and husband Benjamin VanBlaricom in Sophiasburg. In addition, Mary Jane was apparently raised by Sarah Hoover wife of Royal Hicks, who had no children of their own. This indicates that John and Deborah were not present to care for these children by 1861 and possibly by 1851. [1, 3]
