Mother's Side of our Family

 
 

Our Robbins Beginning

 

 Young Grandfather Charles and Grandmother Farinda Robbins

 

And then later in life

 

Grandma Robbins

This lovely hair was dark auburn.  It was carefully combed with a bone comb.  Grandma started at bottom and worked her way up with the comb, and I don't think she ever broke a hair!

She lived to be 97 years old.

She played the dulcimer, by ear.  Lorinda still has her dulcimer.

Lorinda was named for "Loretta" (Daddy's mother) and Farinda (Mother's mother), thus "Lorinda."  Mother created the name.

 

Mother and Daughter

Mother and Grandma Robbins

 

 

 

 

 

 I didn't get to know my grandfather Robbins.  He died while Mother was pregnant with me.  Grandmother took turns staying with different ones of her children.  I looked forward to the times she would come come and stay with us.  She would always bring her "mantel" clock with her and a trunk containing her clothes and other personal items.
