Might be this person below.  Do you know the names of his parents - or any of his siblings?

U S Census, 1940  Ward 1, Lackawanna, Lackawanna City, Erie, NY

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/KQ1H-JT5

head  Charles Robbins  M 25 NY

wife  Martha Robbins F 20 Africa

son  Charles Robbins Jr 9 mos NY

This is the person in question. We are trying to find if the historical relatives of Charles Robbins listed as "mulatto" were of  Native American/Indian background as may have been suggested. It is our understanding that Census takers in the late 1800's-1900's went by the "color" of the individual not  actual ethnic background.

I have created profiles for Charles and his wife, Martha (but not the son, Charles, Jr.s as he may still be living)
