Research Notes

The two census records in 1870 threw me for a loop, but I'm pretty confident Sarah Robinson and Emily Robinson are the same woman, as both are born around the same time in Kentucky with the same husband, same child, and same occupation. Will see if I can find a marriage record to confirm for certain. Raymoure-1 06:11, 25 April 2019 (UTC)
