  George Robeson was born in Oxford Furnace, New Jersey in 1829. After a thorough preliminary training, he became a student at the College of New Jersey, where he graduated in 1847. He studied law and was admitted to the New Jersey Bar in 1850. After being admitted to the Bar he began his practice in Newark.
