About Zoroaster Abraham Robinson

Texas Revolution Soldier (Co.E. Baylor's Texas Calvary), County Judge, Mason, Hostelier, CSA

His last name was listed as ROBERTSON in error on the 1880 Census.

Martha Winn, Zoraster's second wife, according to article in 1872 Texas Almanac, died during the Battle of San Jacinto; "After the capture of San Antonio and the Alamo, he (Zoraster Robinson) returned to his family and remained at home till the 2nd day of March, 1836, when he volunteered in the company of Capt. Joe Bennett, and started the next day, from the town of Washington, to relieve, if possilbe, Travis, who was then besieged by Santa Anna's army, in the Alamo. On reaching the Colorado he joined the army of Gen. Sam Houston, who was then retreating before Santa Anna. He continued with Houston's army to Harrisburg, where he was left sick with the measles. During his sickness the battle of San Jacinto was fought, and from this providence was prevented from participating in that glorious achievement. After the battle, and so soon as he was able to travel, he with others, went in search of their families, whom they had left at the town of Washington for safety when they joined the army. On arriving at that place they found that their families had fled terr-stricken, eastward. Judge Robinson found his wife in the Trinity bottom, surrounded by the overflowed waters fo that stream, whither she had arrived on flood, carring her infant child in her arms. Such are some of the scened of trial and terror that the fathers and mothers of the Texas Revolution witnessed and endured."
