Robinson Family Bible

Thought I would share an image of a page from the Robinson family Bible.   I don't have the original Bible, just the pages of family information which my father had in his possession.   Interestingly, the surname is spelled ROBISON without the "n"!   G.C. is Gideon Casibay Robinson (he went by "Gid") and A.P. is Arthusa Parneshia (she went by "Thusie").   It looks as if the first three names were wrote down first, probably when the Bible was first purchased, possibly after the birth of Lawrence Evans Robinson.   The last five names were written at the same time, at a later date.  I suspect that this is Thusie's handwriting both times.

Bible records are precious keepsakes, don't you agree?

Thank you for the post. I am James Faulkner Andrews Robinson,
the grandson of William L. Robinson. Please tell me anything you can about Gid and Thusie. I know she was an Evans before she married.
