********
I know from family sources that these two sibling sets are indeed the same children. What happened to John and Lina Robinson in 1920? Were Fletcher and Sarah Finney related to John and/or Lina Robinson? Who were John Robinson's parents? Who were Lina's parents (and what was her maiden surname)?

Samuel Cleveland Robinson (1912-1992) worked for the railroad and he lived in Montomgery, AL. He is buried at Greenwood Cemetery in Montgomery, AL.
