Notes On John Robinson

Is this the same John Robinson found in Rutherford Co NC?

Anson Co NC DB H Pg 40 30 July 1767 John Ashley of Craven Co to John Robertson of Anson 100A N of Cheek’s Crk. Wit: Thomas Ussery, Luke Robinson, William Ussery.

Here are some notes on why I think John Robinson, found in Rutherford Co NC, may be the son of Thomas Robinson Sr.

28 Feb 1775 John Robeson LG for 200A "on both sides of Puzle Creek of Second Broad River".

NOTE: There is very little in the records between the above LG and what follows to identify the above John Robinson. He is clearly in the right place in 1775 to be the later one. Whether it's the same person or not is unknown. No documents in Rutherford Co list a Jr or Sr. The 1790 Rutherford Co NC census does not list any John Robinson, whereas the 1800 Rutherford Co NC census lists two.
