History of Kentucky The Blue Grass State, Volume IV Illustrated, The S. J. Clarke Publishing Company, Chicago-Louisville, 1928.

William T. Robbins, county judge of Bell county, is a man of varied talents and has become well known throughout eastern Kentucky as an educator and minister of the gospel. A native of the county, he was born October 29, 1876, and his parents were Wiley and Mary (Miracle) Robbins. He attended the public schools of Bell county and took a normal course at the Lincoln Memorial University. He next matriculated in the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and was ordained February 12, 1898. In the same year he began his career as a minister and teacher and followed these vocations in Bell county for more than a quarter of a century, accomplishing much good. He has baptized over one thousand persons. From 1913 until 1925 he was engaged in missionary work for the state board of missions. Gifted with the power to quicken the souls of men, he won many converts to the faith and was equally successful in his educational work. In the fall of 1925 he was elected county judge on the republican ticket and has served since January, 1926, meeting every requirement of the office. He is a high-minded man with a kindly nature and a clear outlook upon life, and numbers his friends by the hundreds.

Judge Robbins was married July 12, 1902, to Miss Geneva Peace, a daughter of Simon and Sarah (Crawford) Peace, of Bell county, and they have become the parents of nine children: Juanita, Beatrice, Ezra, Marvin, Blanche, Thurman, Birchell, Ruddy and Warren. The second daughter is the wife of Curtis Rice and resides in Harlan county, Kentucky.
