RE: Hugh Robbins, Jr

When Hugh William Robbins (1862-1942) named his son Hugh William Robbins Jr. he automatically became a Sr.. When the 1900 census was completed on 13 Jun 1900, Hugh William Robbins III had not been born and Hugh William Robbins Jr. would have indeed been referred to as Jr.. Also, When Hugh William Robbins Jr. completed his WWI draft Registration card on 5 Jun 1917 his son had not been born yet and as a result he would have indeed still have been called Jr. however, when his son was born (19 Jan 1918), he automatically lost the title of Jr. as it changed to II when he named his son Hugh William Robbins III.

Thanks for responding,

Don Robbins

Dear Bruce Hicks,

I guess you may know my direct kin, A Virginian, Col. (Ret.) Joe Ware. As you asked me to change his Dad's Memorial 132509196 , which I had created.

Thank you for the DATA.

Please add me as your friend. On Find A Grave as well here too now.

RE: Nick Raftes
The Texas birth record for Irene Raftes in 1919 states that her father Nick was 24 and her mother 16. Nick was in the US army. They lived at 1916 Commerce St. in San Antonio. Can find no record of Nick in 1920.

I did see, on Ancestry, a Nick Raftes, in Washington state that was born ca. 1895.

ps. You can contact me at

Thanks for merging the duplicate records. I added the (apparently new) one because no search I did resulted in finding his entry.

A photo request has already been sent to the local volunteers.

We are working on the same person. I had added it just awhile ago also. However I deleted my entry. :)

RE: Linus Eugene Amberg
Thanks for the information. I am currently working on August, 1944 air crashes, so he would be quite a ways ahead of where I am researching now. I'll put him in "Misc." for now.
