John Thomas Robinson, was the son of John T. & Lou Ann Wolf Robinson. John T. married Parthina Roberts April 20 1871, daughter of Jesse & Barthena Smith Roberts.
John T. Robinson was a Preacher. Aunt Goldie called him a "Holiness" preacher. He dedicated Lick Fork Perseverance Church. Goldie Ketchum and Louise said the Church stopped holding services around 1940. Both of them seemed to think they removed the building around the 50's. First time I went to the cemetery was around 93-94. It was a Memorial Day weekend and Goldie wanted to put floors on her brothers grave. She asked me if I would drive her to Lick Fork. Where? Well yea, but you will have to show me the way.
Lick Fork received its name by the natural salt in the area and the deer use to come up and lick it. I thought that was so weird and funny.
John & Parthina had 15 children, I can only account for 14. Only nine lived to adulthood.
