Birth: May 6, 1845, USA
Death: Oct. 1, 1881
Harrison County
West Virginia, USA

w/o John Robert Boggess

Birth: in Virginia, now West Virginia


As told me by "Bettie" (Boggess) Watson: On 1 October 1881, Mary Melinda took her daughters to her mother's home some distance away, because of trouble with her husband. Amelia (Boggess) Robinson, her mother, would not harbor them, so they returned home to find John ranting mad. He grabbed a poker iron, beating Mary and daughter Ida to death, while other four daughters looked on. John was sent to and died in the Weston's West Virginia Asylum hospital where he was buried in 1902.

Census: 1850, age 3 (sic) Harrison County, Virginia

Census: 1860, age 15 Harrison County, Virginia

Death: cause, murdered by husband, Sardis district, Harrison county, West Virginia NOTE: Harrison county and state on line, death records have year 1882, of which we found to be incorrect. Informant, a Robinson cousin.

NOTE: David Swiger on 28 MAR 2012 reported, to wit:
Mary is buried along with her daughter Ada in the Lumberport Lions Club Cemetery under the name "Mary M Robinson". Ada is under the name "Adie Robinson". Her parents were later buried next to them in 1893 and 1907.
