Birth: Jan. 15, 1824
Virginia, USA
Death: Sep. 30, 1893
Harrison County
West Virginia, USA

w/o George W Robinson

Birth: 2nd of six known children, Eagle district, Harrison county, Virginia, now West Virginia

NOTE:
As told me by "Bettie" (Boggess) Watson:
On 1 October 1881, Mary Melinda took her five 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 Ada 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.

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" They are there with Mary's parents, George W and Amelia (Boggess) Robinson.
