GEORGE6 MAXWELL ROBESON (Anna5 Marie Maxwell George4 Clifford Maxwell, Mary3 Clifford, George2, unknown Clifford1); born 16 March 1829 at Oxford Furnace, New Jersey; died in Trenton, New Jersey, 27 September 1897;1652 buried in Belvidere Cemetery (there is an online photograph of his grave),1653 Belvidere, Warren County, New Jersey; married MARY ISABELLA (OGSTON) AULICK.

George Robeson was a Brigadier General in the Union Army during the Civil War; State Attorney General, 1867-1869; U. S. Secretary of Navy, 1869-1877; a candidate for the U. S. Senate from New Jersey in 1877 (defeated) and 1881 (defeated); and a member of the U. S. House of Representative from New Jersey, 1st District, 1879-1883.1654

George Robeson served two terms as Secretary of the Navy under President Ulysses S. Grant. As senior Navy official he supported and was directly responsible for the first United States Navy expedition to the North Pole by USS Polaris, 1871-1873. The expedition was a failure; and, although only the captain of the Polaris did not survive (apparently murdered by arsenic poisoning, as determined nearly 100 years later), it was Robeson's responsible to chair the board of inquiry into the compelling events of this fiasco. Robeson's Channel, which separates the northern part of Ellesmere Island from northern Greenland, was named for George Robeson by the ill-fated Captain of the USS Polaris, Charles Francis Hall. A fascinating account of the Polaris expedition, but with a not very flattering one-paragraph biography of our George Maxwell Robeson, is Fatal North, by Bruce Henderson, 2001, New American Library (a division of Penguin Books), New York, 306 pages.

In 1850, George was living with his parents in Warren County, New Jersey, where he was enumerated as a lawyer. In 1880, George, Mary, and daughter Ethel were living in Camden County, New Jersey, in the household of Joseph M. and Emily Price.1655 Emily was a sister of George Maxwell Robeson, see #479.
