Alvin Robinson:
"...The grandparents of our subject, William and Nancy (Miller) Robinson, were born, reared and married in the State of Kentucky, and were the parents of eleven children, nine being natives of the same State -- Henry, William, Ann, Sarah, Robert, John, James, Samuel, George and Andrew... John Robinson, the father of the subject of this sketch, was born in Kentucky, January 11, 1813, and was a mere lad when he came with his parents to Tippecanoe County, and in 1837 he moved to Kosciusko County. He was reared a farmer, which vocation he has followed the greater part of his life, although at times interested in mercantile pursuits. In 1837 he was married to Martha A. Sharp, a native of New Bedford County, Virginia, but at the time of her marriage living in Tippecanoe County, her parents also being natives of Bedford County. They were the parents of six children, and of this number only two survive -- Eliza J. and Alvin, our subject. Mary, wife of Joseph Kemp, Elvira, Joseph and Alexander are deceased. The mother is now deceased."
Seward Township, pg 728
Mark Smith, Sr., aught the first schol in 1842 in a log-house built upon John Robinson's land.
The first religious services were held in the cabin of John Robinson in the autumn of 1839, Rev. Asa Johnson officiating. After the completion of the school-house in 1842, Rev. Alexander Lemon, of Presbyterian faith, held meetings regularly, until the society in 1850 errected a log church on John Robinson's land.
...James Garvin and John Robinson both planted orchards in 1837.

Not sure all this land was purchased by this John Robinson.

OBITUARY: Elgin Review, 1 Sep 1905, compliments of Brett Robinson;
John Samuel Robinson
Sunday morning brought to the people of this vicinity the sad news of the sudden death during the night of J.S. Robinson, at his home four and a quarter miles north of Elgin, from stomach trouble and heart failure. Mrs. Robinson was absent at the time and had been for a couple of weeks, visiting in Tennessee, and she was at once telegraphed for, arriving on Tuesday. Mr. Robinson had not been in very rugged health for several years past, having had two or three rather severe sick spells. Of late, however, he had seemed as well as usual, being able to be up and around and come to town occasionally. His death, therefor, which came so suddenly and practically without warning, was a distinct surprise and shock to the community.
John Samuel Robinson was born in the state of Indiana, about sixty-eight years ago. At the age of sixteen he moved with his father's family to the then new state of Wisconsisn. In Richland county, Wisconsin, he was married about forty-eight years ago to Mary Ann Leslie. To this union nine children were born. Of these, four were girls and five boys. Two girls and four boys still survive, as follows: Mrs. Lena Gollman, of Tennessee: Mrs. Lucia Patchen, of Fullerton, Nebraska: Thos. S. Robinson, of California; and Grant, Clark, and Roy Robinson of Elgin. Deceased came to Boone County, Nebraska, in 1871, settling near Cedar Rapids. His good wife died in 1896. He was married to Mrs. Clark Finch, of Tennessee, in 1900, and shortly afterward moved to the vicinity of Elgin, Nebraska, where he has resided on his farm. He was a man of mild and gentle disposition, and exemplary habits, upright and honorable in all his dealings with his fellow men. For about twenty years past he has been a member of the Seventh Day Advent Church, and Rev. Beems, of Wayne, a minister of that denomination officiated at his funeral which was held from the West Cedar Valley Congregational church on Wednesday. The interment took place in Elgin Cemetery.

"Clark Robiinson was the first to settle Oelrichs, South Dakota, followed by an older brother, Tom, who wrote to the third brother, Grant, to 'pack up, come to Oelrichs, as it is a very promising country of farm land.'"
"While Tom was looking over the land and choosing some to rent with a house and proper buildings, his wife, Ida, and youngest son, Leslie, were traveling by wagon with their possessions and furniture from Belgrade, Nebraska to Oelrichs."
"In one year they were settled in their new home, so sent for their daughter, Elsie, she was attending school in Tennesee, living with her aunt and uncle, Guy Robinson, their third son, was still living in Belgrade, Nebraska with his wife, Pearl, and two little daughters, Eleanor and Irene."
"In the meantime, after Elsie arrived to be with her parents, they traveled to Hot Springs by horse and buggy to the 'Adoption Welfare Department', and brought home thier choice of a younger sister for Elsie, a three and a half-year-old girl, named Rebecca Marie."
"Before long, World War I hit the States and we were involved in war. Leslie was drafted into the Army and had to leave the United States in June, 1918 to go to Paris, France to do duty on a big ammunitions train. He was gone until May 19, 1919, returning home to Oelrichs safely."
"During the horrors of World War I, a terrible influenza epidemic hit and many people died. Guy's wife, Pearl, was one of these. leaving him alone to care for and raise their two little daughters. Guy brought his daughters to Grandpa and Grandma Robinson's home from Belgrade for care, love and to live on the Robinson farm while helping his 'paw' do the work."
"After harvest time in 1920, Leslie left Oelrichs and went to California to follow his trained professional trade of house plastering. This left Tom and Guy to carry on the farm chores alone."
"The local school board needed a school teaher for the Homestead School, which was in district number 4. The district advertised and Miss Madge Cooper from Sturgis responded."
"The Tom Robinson home was selected for boarding and rooming Miss Cooper for two school year terms, 1918 and 1919."
"During 1920, Guy and Miss Cooper were married. What a happy wedding day, and what a chairvari celebration was given them."
"Uncle Clark felt sorry for them and turned one of his bedrooms over to them for privacy on their wedding night."
"Many neighbors, friends and relatives presented them with gifts."
"Soon the patter of baby feet echoed through the Robinson home and farm. Their first son, James C. Robinson, was born in August of 1921."
"Times became hard on the farm, so an auction was planned before the arrival of their second son, Tom K., expected in April, 1923. The Tom Robinson family had received glowing letters from Leslie and other relatives to come to California to live. Plenty of work and jobs to be had and no freezing weather."
"Clark Robinson had two sons, Vincent and Dale, who are still in Oelrichs.
Tom and Ida Robinson had six children. The surviving two are their daughters, Elsie and Rebecca Marie."
"They had eighteen grandchildren before Ida's death in 1936. Tom saw sixteen great-grandchildren before his death in 1956."

NOTES on back of family photo: The father was a plasterer and farmer by trade, was a 7th Day Adventist and vegetarian after 21 years old, was deeply religious and a good man. He lived to be in his late 80's (really 90's) and made his home with Guy and family 25 or 30 years.

OCCUPATION: Seventh Day Adventist Evangelist; Plasterer (source daughter-in-law, Helen Whitcomb Robinson) .
