Eslinger House is proud to announce the publication of Unmarked Grave: Remembering an American Patriot.

William Robinson was a terrified fourteen-year-old boy when he stowed away on a ship bound for the American Colonies in the Year of Our Lord Seventeen Hundred and Seventy-Three.

During his years at Stratford Hall, a lavish plantation on the Potomac, the boy grew to manhood and learned his life's trade.

William died on January 15, 1847 near Sevierville and was interred in the family burial plot on his land. The burial plot held not only his body; it held the secrets that he took to the grave. Fast-forward one hundred and fifty years - William Robertson's third great granddaughter, Debra Pack Gilberstadt, goes on a quest to find her roots.
