A Robinson Christmas in Columbus

Uncle Lawson Robinson, pictured far right, was a Methodist minister and as such, he and his family spent Christmas throughout the years in various towns scattered across northeast Mississippi. Here, Uncle Lawson is pictured with, from left to right: daughter Lucy seated, brother-in-law Fred Broom (brother to Itawambian Victor Broom), Aunt Lucille, Lawson's granddaughter Lynda Sue Whitfield, Aunt Jewell Broom. Seated next to Lawson is Kathleen Broom, daughter of Jewell and Fred. The photograph was taken at the Columbus Methodist parsonage in the early 1950s. Lawson and Jewell were both born near Tremont, children of Gideon and Thusie Robinson.
