JOHN T. ROBINSON, M. D., is a native of Princeton, Ind., and was born
April 11, 1829. His parents, Samuel and Liddie (McKimm) Robinson, were
born, respectively, in Baltimore, Md., and Kennebec, Me. The father
went to Princeton, Ind., about 1829, sold goods for the time being, and
the same year came to Kentucky, and located at Jackson's Landing, about
six miles from Warsaw, Gallatin County, and again engaged in mercantile
pursuits. The brother of Samuel, S. B. Robinson, was a classmate of
Humphrey Marshall at the Military Academy, West Point, N. Y. He died in
1835. John T. Robinson, at the age of nineteen, began the reading of
medicine while a pilot on the Ohio River, and continued his studies
until 1852, in which year he became captain of the steamer "John T.
Cline" plying between Madison and Louisville; later he was on the
"Alvin Adams". In 1855 he quit the river, and until 1860 sold goods at
Warsaw, Ky., but still pursued his study of medicine. In 1860 he
entered Cleveland Medical College, from which he was graduated in 1861,
and in the latter year opened practice at Warsaw, Ky., where he is
still lucratively engaged at his profession. During the recent war he
acted as provost marshal, and though opposed to the emancipation
proclamation, was decidedly a Union man. August 24, 1852, he married
Miss L. C. Moore, of Madison, Ind. Of the children born to this
marriage four are living: Samuel B., born November 21, 1856, now in
partnership with his father in the practice of medicine; McIntyre M.,
born November 23, 1858; John G., born October 15, 1866, and Allie D.,
born October 4, 1871. The Doctor has a farm of 165 acres near Warsaw,
which he cultivates in conjunction with his practice. He is a Royal
Arch Mason, and is also a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church.
