My mom has Ephraim Robbins and Sarah Sellers listed in her bible
grandparents but no dates on them. Their son Luther Robbins died
causes) in the very late 1920's or early 1930's when my grandmother
Belle Robbins was only 3. No birth dates or definite death dates.
Luther Robbins owned some tug and dredge boats (looking into
lived in Louisiana (New Orleans in the end).
BONNIE - Thanks, maybe contact the Orleans Parish for a death certificate
library for copy of obit. They may even have one on his parents.
perhaps know what area to search in! Try on line also. Thanks,marie,
Ephraim Robbins & Sarah Sellers lived in Louisiana.
I don't know if they
were born here or who their parents were, that's what I'm trying
They had Luther Robbins who married Bernadette de St Germain and
lived in Louisiana. I have been able to trace back Bernadette's
not Luther's. Luther was my mom's grandfather but he died before
born. I don't have dates on them either except that Luther died
late 1920's to early 1930's when my grandmother was about 3yrs old.
I finally found my Ephriam Sellers (not the Ephraim or Ephrim
wife Sarah Sellers. It was there burial site in Jackson Parish,
live right outside of New Orleans and hopefully can drive up there.
I couldn't find any other info in Jackson but found out that
burned in 1860, I think, so now I still can't find their parents!!
to get their birth and death dates (middle names too) but that's
Ephriam R. Robbins b 1843 d 1918 and wife Sarah E. Sellers
b 1846 d 1933.
if anyone get's a bell ringing in their head let me know (smile).
