I am looking for info on my paternal grandfather Lee W Robinson Born ABT 1925 He died on the Van Wyke expressway New York, USA around Nov. 1960. I believe he was married to a woman named Patricia and I have been told my father had a brother and I am looking for more info. on any family. I believe his mother was named Naomi (Robinson*) and father was Lonnie Mc Queen from North Carolina I believe.

Your fatherʻs name and birth place might help find your grandfather, in addition to the state and city.
Sadly, it wont. My grandmother was from a Zionist family and my grandfather was black. Not a real popular happening in 1957 when my father was born. My hunch is that he was omitted from many family records because of this

That is him Thank you! I ordered this years ago but I seem to have lost it. That is where I got his parents names but it doesn't seem that they are listed in any census or anything else. Got any ideas for any ways to gather more info?

This military record seems to be attached (I cannot tell whether correctly or incorrectly) to a familysearch profile for your grandfather.  In that profile his spouse is given as Ruth Goodman?  Does any of this correlate with what you already know?

"United States World War II Army Enlistment Records, 1938-1946," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:KMV9-DF3 : 5 December 2014), Lee W Robinson, enlisted 27 Mar 1943, Baltimore, Maryland, United States; citing "Electronic Army Serial Number Merged File, ca. 1938-1946," database, The National Archives: Access to Archival Databases (AAD) (http://aad.archives.gov : National Archives and Records Administration, 2002); NARA NAID 1263923, National Archives at College Park, Maryland.
