Robinson, John (5)
Robinson, John (5), a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, was born in County Wicklow, Ireland, Aug. 14, 1801. He was converted in his fourteenth year, and came to the United States in 1818, uniting soon after with the Church in Fishkill, N.Y. In 1823 he moved with his parents to South Sodus, Wayne Co., where he labored, with a great revival as a result. After working under the presiding elder for two years, he was in 1832 received on trial as an ordained deacon in the Genesee Conference. In this and in the East Genesee Conference he labored a short time previous to his death, in Starkey, Yates Co., Jan. 9, 1868. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1868, p. 155.
