Notes for WILLIAM H. JR. ROBINSON:
Wm. Robinson, a prosperous farmer and native of Smith County, was born
about 1840 in Horse Shoe Bend, on the Cumberland River. He is one of two
children born to John and Agnes (Olmstead) Robinson. The father is of
English descent, born in the vicinity of where William first saw the light
of day, in 1810. After his fathers death and at the age of eighteen. John
began farming with his brother Allen on the place which had been left to
them. Fifteen years later he sold out to his brother and purchased a farm in
the same neighborhood. He is now living with William. The mother was a
native of Smith County and died when our subject was a small child, at the
place where the grandfather departed this life. The subject of this sketch
had no educational advantages, but through deficient in that respect he has,
since the age of twenty-five, been successfully engaged in tilling the soil
of the farm partially owned by his father. It is located about three and a
half miles northeast of Carthage in the bend of the Cumberland River.
Williams marriage was a romantic affair. John and Lavinia Smith, of
Chestnut Mound, had a fair daughter, Louise, with whom our subject was
deeply in love. The parents objected to the suitor, so the young couple made
their escape and were married in 1858. Mrs. Robinson was born in 1841 near
Ancient Creek, in Putnam County, Tenn. Their union was blessed with two
children, Agnes and John. Mr. Robinson enlisted in the Confederate service,
Company H, and three months after reaching Camp Trousdale, was very ill,
consequently was sent home. He began life with comparatively nothing and no
education, but has managed, by industry, shrewdness and economy, to
accumulate about 500 acres of good land. He is a stanch Democrat, cast his
first presidential vote for James Buchanan in 1856. Mr. and Mrs. Robinson
are respected and earnest members of the Methodist Episcopal Church.
