91 iv. REV. DON M. ROBINSON 4 (#646) ARRENA B3 JOHNSTON (GEORGE GREGORY ("G.G." OR "GREG")2, LEWIS1) was born in Randolph County, Arkansas, November 1854. DON died on May 11, 1915 in Hoxie, Lawrence County, Arkansas, at 60 years of age. His body was interred in Doniphan, Ripley County, Missouri, Oak Ridge Cemetery.
He married EMILY ETHERIDGE MOORE (#2420) in Randolph County, Arkansas on September 18, 1878. Emily was probably born in Randolph County, Arkansas in 1860. Emily died about July 1879 in Randolph County, Arkansas, at approximately 19 years of age. Her body was interred in Randolph County, Arkansas.
He married THALIA C. CAPPS (#2422) in Randolph County, Arkansas on June 13, 1880. Thalia was born in Greene County, Arkansas on September 3, 1853. Thalia died on May 10, 1937 in Doniphan, Ripley County, Missouri, Oak Ridge Cemetery.
Note: 1. At the time of the 1880 census, Don Robinson was living in Randolph County, Arkansas with the family of Rheuben Wilson. He is 26 years old, and was widowed the previous year when his wife, Emily, died during childbirth. The baby, Emma E., was taken in by Don's parents. I believe Rheuben Wilson to be the brother of Don's sister-in-law, Mary Esther Wilson, the 2nd wife of Jim Lewis Robinson, Don's older brother.
2. Don M. Robinson followed his father, Jesse Robinson, into the Ministry of the Methodist Episcopal Church-South.
3. Rev. Don M. Robinson presided at the wedding ceremony when my own grandparents were married on February 27, 1898, in Albertha, Randolph County, Arkansas.
4. Shortly after Don's marriage to Thalia Capps in June, 1880, the little girl, Emma, whose middle name, like her mother's, was Etheridge, but was mostly called "Etta", was retrieved from Don's parents to live with them. She was still with them at the age of 21, in Randolph County at the time of the 1900 census.
