    SAMUEL ROBINSON, a successful farmer of Johnson county, is a son of Alexander and Christina (Kirk) Robinson. The father was born in Wythe County, Virginia, about 1779 was a soldier in two Indian wars, the Creek and Black Hawk, and died in 1849. The parents were married in 1800, and had eleven children, namely: Kate, deceased, was the wife of John Bailey, of Warren County; William, deceased; George deceased; J. Wesley, deceased; Nancy, deceased, was the wife of William Lee of Missouri; James who died in the Mexican war; Polly, deceased, was the wife of James Robinson of Tennessee; Alexander, of Clarksville, Tennessee; Betsey, deceased, was the wife of Riley Brookshire, of Missouri; Jacob, of Richmond, Missouri and Samuel, our subject.

    The latter was born in Bedford County, Tennessee, July 4, 1839 [s/b 1829], and he remained with his parents until nineteen years of age, when he moved to Nashville, and engaged in selling produce of all kinds. In 1872 he came to Texas, and six years later bought his present farm, six miles east of Alvarado. In 1847 Mr. Robinson enlisted in the Mexican war, in the Fourth Tennessee Infantry, Company B, and served nine months, and he now draws a pension for his services in that war. Politically, he votes with the Democratic Party, socially, is a member of the Alliance, and religiously, both he and his wife are members of the Missionary Baptist Church, and he was licensed to preach in that church about fifteen years ago.

    He was married in 1849, to Bettie, a daughter of James and Sarah Brown. Mr. and Mrs. Robinson have had six children: Mary, wife of Charles Dawson, of Dallas, deceased; Houston, a physician of Nacogdoches, Bettie, wife of E.M. Edge, of Haskell; Jacob, of Austin, Texas; Nancy, wife of Charles Fralay, of Haskell; and Emma at home. The wife and mother died in 1881, and in 1883 Mr. Robinson married Mrs. Alice Miles Fraley, of Ellis county, and they have had four children: Jeremiah, Belle (deceased), Robert Lee and George. Mrs. Robinson had one son by her former marriage, Eddie.
