Our branch of the family is Robling and has been in the USA since before the first US 1790 census in North Carolina. Family oral history was that Lewis Robling (Roblin in 1790 census and Robling in 1800 census) came to USA from Wales. The Lewis Robling part of the family moved to Pike County in southern Indiana in 1820 and most of that branch are still in Indiana, and the John Robling part of the family stayed in North Carolina, then Rowan County, now Davidson County area. Our information is sketchy, but Lewis Robling may have been born in 1767 in Pembrokeshire, Wales, UK, which would mean that he either immigrated at a young age or with his parents. He may have married Polly Gibbson in North Carolina in about 1790. He may have had a brother named John Robling who would have also been born in Pembrokeshire around the same time. We have never been able to find documentation from Wales that definitely refers to this Lewis Robling or John Robling. From the 1791 birth of Peter J. Robling, son of Lewis Robling, forward our family information is well documented by census records, birth, marriage and death records, and land ownership records in Pike County, Indiana from 1820 forward.
