Surnames: Robinson, Dupree
I am looking for information on the family of Byron Robinson (1879) and Clara Dupree (1880). Both were born in Wisconsin. Byron's father was from Pennsylvania, and his mother was from either Pennsylvania or Wisconsin. Clara's parents were French Canadian immigrants.

The two married on August 14, 1899 in Wood County, so it is quite possible one or both are from there. They lived in Wood , Wood County in 1905. In 1910 they lived in Hiles, Forest County. In 1920 they lived in Elton, Langlade County, and in 1930 they lived in White Lake, Langlade County. I believe they both died in this area, but I don't know when. Clara, I know, passed away after 1960.

They had twelve children together:
Henry (1901), Margaret (1903), Frank (1904), Edward (1905), Mabel (1907), Viola (1908), Byron (1913), Leuretta (1915), Pearl (1917), Rosella or Rosetta (1919), Bernard (1923), and John (1926).

Any information you can add would be very much appreciated!
