Lewis Robison, born October 28, 1816 in Cincinnati, Ohio. He died in November of 1883 at Salt Lake City, Utah. He was the son of Reverend Charles Robison and Rebecca Kellogg. He was the seventh child of the family and resided in Cincinnati from about 1806 (1808) until 1824. The immigration took place from Cincinnati, Ohio to Illinois in 1824. The Elder came by water to Fort Clark and then settled near Des Moines, Grand Rapids on the Sangmanson, Illinois side. His father expected to utilize the river for a manufacturing enterprise. Charles, with his six sons drove seventeen hogs to the Sangaman County, Illinois side. His father expected to sell the hogs as payment on a homestead in the completion of the journey. However, near the end, the fat hogs stampeded and were a total loss. The wagons were drawn by two oxen and one horse. Shortly after moving here, an Indian brave went to the house and demanded all the sugar they had. When the mother refused to give him all, the Indian brave raised his tomahawk and scalping knife. She knew by his actions he would kill her and her children unless she did as he wished. However, the approach of one of these sons or older boys of the family came with a long whip with a lash on the end who surprised the Indian. The Indian, upon seeing the whip, changed his mind, tried to be friendly and showed an attitude of friendship to the family. During the Black Hawk War, the Indians were cruel and terrible. The family was afraid during the war. When the homes were used as a refuge and block house. A war dance and barbecue was held by the sight of it, cattle chased around and killed. The family in 1839 moved to Carthage, Illinois. In 1836 Minvera Juresha Kellogg died, leaving ten children. In 1837 Reverend Charles Robison married Catherine Capen Wells with two children Daniel Homner and Catherine Wells. Long before this, Daniel H. Wells was fast friends with Lewis Robison. The childhood home - the wild beauty of its environment with its wild forests and flowing rivers coupled with the tender affections of his kindreds - throughout Lewis´ life was precious memories. The association and the hard experiences and responsibilities of the young, undoubtedly were factors in forming the superb characters of the man whose bravery and courage were interwoven with a great tenderness and charity. On Christmas Day 1839 in Nauvoo, Illinois Lewis married Minvera Clarissa Duzzett by Benjamin Warrington, and became the parents of ten children. Three were born in Nauvoo. Clarissa Duzzett was the daughter of Phileman Duzzett and Elizabeth King. Phileman was lost in Zion´s Camp. In 1839, he became acquainted with the Mormons and became a Mormon. Clarissa was born December 18, 1822 at Worcester, Ohio. Their children, James was born August 1841, died August 14, 1842 in Nauvoo, Illinois. Sola Wells was born April 10, 1843. Charles Edward was born December 2, 1845 and died September 26, 1863 at York, Whitter County, North Carolina. Lewis first became a Mormon in 1839 and came West with them. On February 4, 1841 Lewis was one of the officers selected for the Nauvoo Legion. In the summer of August 6, 1836, Lewis was baptized. Lewis took part in Church affairs and came West with them at the time of the Exodus. At on time, Lewis was where the mob was taking over. He was standing against a board fence when the mob demanded him to give up his arms or they would shoot. "Shoot if you will, but I will never give up my arms." He went down the river and left them (Joseph Smith Robison) Mormon leaders promptly agreed to move their people at once, but with Brigham Young´s characteristic methods resolved to grapple with the tremendous undertaking of the exodus of the people. Private Journal February 17. People trusting in their God. The Mormons were in their mission superior to the greatest trials, and in their childlike faith, was equal to almost superhuman undertaking. Lewis Robison, a through American and a whole believer in Mormonism is proof of his ardent love of his native Country and of the efforts and works in caring in the belief. His royal and stirring actions showed his patriotism of his religion and the Mormon people. He and Daniel H. Wells had been friends and brothers to each other. Daniel married Eliza Rebecca Robison March 12, 1837. She was born January 4, 1820 in Cincinnatii, Ohio and died August 1895 in Alma, Michigan. When the exodus was, Eliza left with her son and never met Daniel again. Lewis and Homner traveled together as much as possible and camped side by side in a wagon box in Salt Lake City where Combs Drugs Store was on Fourth South and State Street. Heber M. Wells and his brother claimed it was always a pleasure to go to Uncle Lewis and Aunt Clarissa when they were children. When the Saints fled from Missouri, Lewis was always one of the first to welcome them and help the refugees. Lewis left Winter Quarters in Charles C. Rich´s company. This company was known and organized as the Artillery Company. Lewis was over fifty men to repair wagons or give assistance or service to the emigrants along the way.
