BIRTHS: I had the opportunity to go to Mason and research in the Mason Historical room. I discovered a little record book for Dr. Willis Johnson who worked in Jaffery from 1808 - 1814 then in Mason from July 1814 to after 1858. I was able to make photo copies of this wonderful little book. It is a Birthing Book recording the date, husband's name, and sex of the child. Notice that the good Dr. changed the spelling as the years went on. Where you see a [?] this means the copy machine cut off that part of the page, unfortunately. I found the following Robbins entries:
