Family Account

Written by:  Elizabeth Robinson Cowne

One member of the family told me about 40 years ago that there was a very early house on the Revercomb Farm which was in the field near the river in a line with the log house on the hill, which was the 3rd house and which burned about 1974 or 1975.  I suppose the house in the field was the first house also I seem to remembers someone saying that there was an early house at Deep Ford Farm at the big bend of the railroad track in front of the cliffs.  When I was a little child I remember playing there with the Weaver children and I think I found some pieces of dishes there also there were some old apple trees there.  I don’t know when the log house at the bridge was built.  My grandfather, Jonathan Alexander Robinson  was one of the younger children and he was there as a small child.  He was born in 1836.  According to the ages of his brothers and sisters I would say his father and mother were married from 1825-1830.  I would not known where they started unless it was there.  The wife of (Major) William M. Robinson  was Elisabeth Sively  whose home was the Nettleton Estate of Lexington St., Covington, Virginia where the Covington High School now stands.  The Sively Farm took in a lot of land along there, going down to the Sunny Meade Area I suppose.  Sively was pronounced with a short i although I remember some old person calling it sighvely.

 

Actually, the house which burned on the Revercomb Farm was said to be the third house.  The first was near the river.  The second was on the hill above the railroad .  After about 10 years, the third one was built more to the south from the second and the logs from the second were used for a smoke house in the northeast corner of the yard of the 3rd one.

 

These houses and the one of Wright Smith  at the Gross Farm (Sponaugles) and the old log house which at the R.E.L. Smith  Farm below Barber and the one between that one and the Kyle Farm were about the oldest on that part of Jackson’s River.

 

William M. Robinson  had a tobacco barn on the hill above the railroad crossing in what used to be our vegetable garden  so a member of the family told me.  He built up a fire to cure the tobacco, then went down to his house at the bridge and was reading Pilgrim’s Progress.  Later he looked up and fire was coming out of the top of the barn.  It and the tobacco burned up.

 

There was a flood about1847.  William & Elizabeth were awakened by a bumping under the house.  They thought it was a dog.  He opened the door and stepped out into water.  It was the boys’ sled washing up under the floor.  There was another flood about 1877.  The first bridge was an open bridge – a flood took a pier out.

About a quarter of a mile below the Rivercomb house on a bank above the railroad stood a log house with an upstairs.  At one time it was a school house.  Some of the children of James Taylor Robinson , Jonathan Alexander Robinson  and his brothers and sisters and “Big Sam” Dressler and his brother and sisters were among the pupils who went there.  In later years when Jonathan Alexander married Elisabeth Minnich  they went to housekeeping there.  Then when Mr. William M. Robinson  at the bridge passed away they and little Ella moved to the bridge to the log house at the bridge to take care of, Elizabeth Sively Robinson .  They lived there a few years then Jonathan built a six room white frame house where Rupert’s live on the hill above the railroad tracks.

 

Somewhere around 1912.  Jonathan had a Mr. Brisentine  build 2 more rooms on the white frame house over the kitchen and dining room.  These were not plastered but had natural wood ceiling walls and a full upper porch over the enlarged lower porch and a porch stairway.  About this time, Grandfather Jonathan and Mr. Charlie Warner , the tenant moved the log house from below Revercomb's up to his farm and rebuilt a lower room with upper room about 200 feet behind and above the white frame dwelling.  It was just where the hill begins to rise and about the old log granary and stable was referred to as the McKinney house.

 

At the house at the bridge – at first there was a barn across the road.  The stables were near the bridge.  There was also a hen house over that side.  When Ella was small she begged to wear her mother’s wedding ring.  Later she was throwing out apple peelings to the chickens and it dropped off.  When her mother noticed it was gone.  They searched many times and upset.  When Ella grew up and married and had children a playmate of the younger girl found a ring in the field which was very thin, but Ella’s mother recognized her wedding ring.

 

I don’t know what the small log house near the river as built for, perhaps a meat house only the meat was dangerously near the ground.  I should think.  When I was small and played with Charles Weaver’s children and the children of Mr. George Fry  and the children of Mr. Walter Huffman  who were tenants at different times it was used for a hen house.

 

When they did not use the water from the dug well they used river water.

 

About 1908-1910 There were two more rooms to the log dwelling.  The lower one had a fireplace towards the bridge.  A very nice stairway and nice upper room.  On a table up there was a lot of ____ yellow long fibers which the weavers said was flax.  Also I have seen some heavy pieces of bed ticking home woven of linen threads, I think, were up there.  About that time Mr. Weaver took the rooms and porch off, suppose he burned the logs for wood.

 

At one time there were some beautiful cherry  heavy beds upstairs in the present house.  They were very old and had cords to hold up the feather or straw ticks.  Some one at some time cut them up for wood.  I suppose.

 

Nelson Robinson , son of John L Robinson, was coming back to Virginia from Indian on a visit, I have heard, but died on the train. His sister was Sally B. – was B for Barnett her aunt.  Uncle James Taylor (Robinson) married a Miss Barnett  for his first wife.

 

When the log house at the bridge was built, the kitchen may have been separate from the house, but when I was a child there was a breeze way, between with a plank floor and a roof but all open sides.  The Weavers ate out there some times in the summer.  There was an open window in the loft over the kitchen looking into the breeze way.  Emory and Hiram Weaver  used to climb up to it and down.  They were a lot of fun.  When we lived in the frame house on the hill, people said we were at Deep Ford.  When we bought a railroad ticket in Covington it read “Dameron” and the conductor would call out all out for “Robinson’s Crossing”.  There was a rocky path down the hill from our hog pen to the crossing.  One had to go under a wire fence.  It went by our large red plum trees which were at the end of the vegetable garden.  Hattie McConnel’s children loved to come up for plums.

 

When we used to go to the County Fair in Covington about 1916 – it was adjacent to the old Sively home.  I remember several well built log houses in the north east corner of the yard at the Sively place (Nettleton Home) Cynthia Byers  (Francis’ and Mamie’s daughter) told Lucille that her great grandmother was a younger sister of our great grandmother.  There was Martha Ann and ours Elisabeth.  I remember an old lady and a little black-eyed and black haired girl at the dedication of the courthouse in Covington and grandma called her Matt Byers  – who was she?  There was a nice free dinner on the lawn under a tent shelter, I think, and a children’s chorus and music and the unveiling of the Civil War monument at the same time, perhaps.  Moma, grandma and I went.  I suppose Lucille, was not born yet.  I can remember young women passed the food at the tables.

[xvi]

This rhyme was taught to Elisabeth Madalin Robinson  Cowne  as a child by her grandmother, Elizabeth (Hess) Minnick .

Eia popeia, was raschelt im Stroh

Worte:  aus  „Des Knaben Wunderhorn"

Weise:  volkstümlich

Glockenspiel

1.  Eia popeia, was raschelt im Stroh?  Die Gänslein gehen

     barfuß und hab'n keine Schuh!  Der Schuster hat's Leder, kein

     Leistendazu, drum kann er den Gänslein auch manchen kein Schuch'.

2.      Eia popeia, das ist eine Not!  Wer schenkt mir einen Heller

zu Zucker und Brot?  Verkauf ich mein Bettchen und leg mich

aufs Stroh, Da sticht mich kein' Feder und beißt mich kein Floh.

 

The above song " Eia popeia, was raschelt im Stroh" as translated into English by Geoffrey Orth, professor of German at Longwood College, Farmville, Virginia:

What's Rustling in the Straw?  

Folk Verse from the little boy's cornucopia (horn of plenty)  [German equivalent of Mother Goose]

1.      What's rustling in the straw? The goslings strut barefoot and have
no shoes. The shoemaker has leather, but no last (a last is the form used
to make shoes). Therefore he can't make the goslings their shoes.

2.      Now here's an emergency (great need). Who'll give me a penny for sugar and
bread? I'll sell my bed and lay me down on the straw--there a feather
won't stick me and a flea won't bite.

Jonathan is also remembered for some of the simple things in life that he did.  For example: he counted money using English values; he used the word jerkin for jacket -- he would say something like "put on my jerkin and go up to milk the cows." [xvii]

Elisabeth Minnick  dated the Robinson brothers, John & Jonathan, finally choosing Jonathan Robinson.
