In the records of the Probate Court of Penobscot County, Maine I found this inventory of the estate of Amiel Robbins, who died, as stated here, on 20 July 1833, in Milton, Penobscot County. Why do I find this of interest? Ruth’s 2nd great grandparents were Samuel Templeton and Susannah Robbins. We know that Samuel was the son of Adam Templeton, but to this point the family has not been able to identify the parents of Susannah. In the probate records Amiel Robbin’s wife’s name is listed as Susannah. Also of note is that Samuel and Susannah Templeton named a son Amiel.
The Amiel Robbins family was listed in the 1830 census in Boydstown, Penobscot, Maine, a household of 7 members with the male head between the ages of 50 and 59. Boydstown is now Orneville Township, located just south of Milo, Piscataquis, ME. This area of Penobscot County became part of the new Piscataquis County when it was created in 1838.
