The top gravestone, and Ralph's separate inclusion on his materal grandparent's memorial, partially solves an important family question.

It is historically claimed that Andrew W. Robb and Martha J. Requa's youngest dau. Jessie, born in "Dec. 1872," was the first White child born at 'Muscogee' in the Creek Nation in Indian Territory, now the City of Muskogee, Oklahoma. Unfortunately, history needs to be reconsidered.

Some sources claim that dau. Jessie was born on Dec. 13, 1872, one day after her twin brother Ralph was born per these two gravestones. However, which twin was born first will forever be unknown.

It would appear more appropriate for Muskogee, Oklahoma's local history to claim that Jessie and her twin brother Ralph were the first White "children" b. at Muscogee, Indian Territory.
